A smaller afair than the usual gigs, but there was a War of the World sketch where we got to pull out all the effects – Pyro, Strobe Lighting, UV, Normal Lighting and Laser pointers […]

The Fabulous Thunderbirds @ Rios / Endless Torment @ Rios

Last weekends was a pretty good one. Spent Friday evening setting up for a Scout Gang Show. It went a tad slow and wasn’t helped by Chris dropping the Mirror Ball and having to spend most of the evening glueing tiny bits of mirrors back on it. After this headed off to Tapps and then […]

Ossett & Power

Yet another show in Ossett town hall. We are getting quite good at getting stuff setup there – however thanks to the dreadful power supply we lost all lighting right at the end of the show.

Another week…

another show. This time in Ossett Town Hall Again. I’d had some work on it – but none of it seems to have made things easier. In fact one of the changes has made things a tiny bit harder. They replaced on of the power sockets with a new one, which is about 5-10 cm […]

Friday & Saturday Night

Managed to get some more paid op works – 11 hours of it @ a not too bad rate of £9 an hour. It was easy work too – basically keeping the volume at a decent level and occasionally playing round with the channels eqs to get it sounding best. As it was a d&b […]

This Year So Far….

Church Show

Have just finished the get out of a show I did in the church (well I lie – I’ve had tea and watched the Spanish Grand Prix, but what the heck). The show went very well, and I think the recording went well, but we can’t tell just yet as the studio’s not set up. […]
