Available for short notice use.Very sensibly priced considering all u get!
give me a ring to see if i can help u out....andy 07894 645 881
thoroughly recommended, i booked Andy kinda last minute for a 21st birthday on sunday there and the sound was perfect, catering for a 5 piece with 3 vocals out front, synth and bass DI'd and ace monitor mix meant we could do our thing with ease. great craic too and very cheap!
Well done to The Earls Of Enkalon and also the other bands who played at Maddens in Antrim last night.Unfortunately I was gigging myself but I hear the place was stompin!!
Hear u liked the smoke!!Cough,cough!!
Any of the bands who played, feel free to contact me if u need a PA etc again.Many thanks Mal+guys
Stew flew that desk like the Millenium fuckin' Falcon folks!If u need a sound guy or guitarist U could do a lot worse.
One of the guitarists on Friday night turned up with a Micro Cube(ok,size aint everything...Ladies?!) and Stew made that puppy sound like a freakin Zeppelinesque stack!
Well done there Stew and Chris and many thanks for your hard work.;)
PA etc supplied on Sat night rock night at the Coach in Ballymena.Thanks for not melting my gear and hope attendance improves once word gets round Dave.Keep pluggin away.
If anyone needs a decent PA for buttons give me a buzz.l8rs;)
This rig made me go through puberty backwards, yet Stew's deft handling of the sound still made me sound like Godzilla with Thor's hammer up my ass.[/quote:932233f5c3]
I thank thee your Hubness!I tried the hammer thing but i guess u gotta insert the handle side first,eh?.guess u learn from your mistakes!MEDIC!!!!!
Big up the Hubris.....now they have Stew wielding the bass can they now acheive the ultimate hubedom?...i think they can.i just heard a dove cry.:045:
(i may have job for stew this week if u can pass it on.big smile)
bumpity hump....no saturdays available if u need a PA til April but can sort u with a soundguy and provide PA mon-friday+sundays.
only on here a wee bit so best to text or ring 07894 645 881 (its an O2 number);)
many thanks to Stew for all ur hard work on thursay nite in the Pavilion.many thanks to the sabateur/gremlin who threw a spanner in the works at the Rosie.the anthrax is in the post!lol.Luckily I had spare desk and amps with me and pulled it off.....just.
many thanks to Joe (sound engineer and lovely man) for being my extra pair of lugs out there.much appreciated dude.
Big up the Earls Of Enkalon playin Laverys on Sun 14th.u will be in Stews capable hands.Stew shall be attempting the world record for multitasking in The Rossetta on Fri 26th when he will be flyin the mixin desk,playin bass for the Hubris and attempting to circumcise himself all at once.
Fuck,that cant be bad!
well done to all the bands who played last nite at the Suffolk Inn.Stew did his stuff as per usual even though confronted with minor issues such as no bass amp(ach sure bung it straight into the PA!),a sliding about drumkit(sell u a mat?lol) and many drunken hot teenage rock chicks.i mean wtf,hows a soundguy supposed to concentrate.!!
i hope they get that radiator re-attached to the wall and the spew cleaned up from the car park...ach sure it gives the birdies a wee treat!mmmm
well done Stew,thanks for all your hard work as usual.
Need a good PA,lights and a gr8 soundguy?AND CHEAP TOO!!giz a buzz;)
rock chicks?drunken jailbait:sick: .i was concentrating on the knobs on the mixer-the missus concentrates on the knob in my trousers:098:
i'm making a flightcase for the mixer-remember-Mackie's don't bounce.
yes indeed a great night was had by all who attended the gig last night
if any bands are looking a P.A. and soundman who knows what he's doing for a reasonable price use this guy seriously. did our sound the other week and we half expected some college dropout who thought they knew everything about music to do an okay job, this guy made us sound about ten times better than we should have though, really knows what he's doing.
Here mate what sort of a deal could you do me for a straight forward PA hire and set up for a DJ set - no mics or lights, just to bring the PA down and set it up? And what kind of size is it? hold on, it probably says that earlier in the thread, I'll go back and read, give us a wee estimate though will ya?
Full PA is available for this Friday and Saturday night (due to my own band doing an early gig with the wee PA)
edit (see below)if u need a rock/metal DJ and dont use our Chris/darkprince u need ur grey matter looked at!yes he may come across as a bit weird and eats nesting robins for brunch but dont let that put u off,he know his stuff.I will rent u a PA at a special rate if u book him(just to get him outta the nuthouse,sorta like mad murdock from the A-team!)book him now,if u dont i hate u and will stamp my feet in a very gay way.
Hahaha, I'm afraid it's very very far from a metal/death/industrial DJ I need! Although maybe just for the discount.....don't think it would go down to well with a bunch of hardcore rare soul fans though. ;)
I'm working on that aspect Chi Lite, once I have a GRAND collection of my alternate stuff then I'll be starting to collect in other genres (ie soul, jazz, dance, rap, etc) For now I'm sticking with the Rock/Metal side as my collection needs to be upgraded from 8'000 songs to about 10'000.
lol!DarkPrince aint really a name u associate with a bit a groovy soul,ud need to call yourself something more suitable....any ideas?
which reminds me,Chris m8 i can pick up that vinyl soon if u want.im sure ur ma's cracking at bloody records takin over the house!
if anyones interested in buying a huge collection of vinyl,all boxed,a lot of collectables,a lot of cheesie shit too,giz a buzz,also some old decks/mixer in built in flight case.....
this friday Pa's available if anyone wants it.:025:
doing sound tonight in the Pavilion and Sunday night in Laverys.Pop along if u can and support local live original music.Hoping to see plenty of Antrimers down on Sunday to support the Earls of Enkalon,big up Mal n the guys.Im topping up the smoke jet machine as i type!i know u like it,suits u sirs!

Thank you guys,appreciate it.These guys organise a gig the way its supposed to be done.I steer any good rockin bands their way.
See u guys at the next Rockin At The Rosie Gig (Fri 26th March):035:
er...Earls of Enkalon..have u actually arrived at Laverys yet?Gigs supposed to have started a half bleedin hour ago and u have the flippin drums.Our Stew will be havin puppies!Someone poke em wif a cattleprod please.
the only other person at the gig not playing in a band last night was me so that's how well the whole operation was organised.drums arrive at 8.40 pm- doors open at 9pm and the Earls have yet to plug in and assemble drumkit.guitars leads not working,fx pedals with dead batteries,keyboard line-out not working.2 bands sitting waiting/wondering what was happening.Gascan Ruckus and Deadlights certainly made up for it and would be well worth another view at another gig-well done guys.
erm...now might be a good time to post a wee checklist for bands doing similar gigs.Carefully complying with said list will prevent Mr Stews head from exploding thus covering both patrons and musicians with difficult to remove brain matter!
1.Strings.have recent strings and spares.Check yer batteries and cables work.
2.Drums.in the name of good fuck have decent heads and a bloody hole in the front of the kick drum.spare sticks and manpons unless u aint sharing stools...oooo..yuk!sweaty bastards!Whoever is supplying the kit for the night please arrive at a sensible hour to allow all bands to soundcheck(Earls,we still love u,lol,ok Stew doesnt just now but he can be brought round by cash,fegs and beer)
3.Amps.agree with the other bands whose amps are gonna be used and make sure theyre decent.U dont need stacks and stacks but at least a decent sized combo.we will mic em up anyway but wee practice amps dont cut the mustard.A decent bass amp is a must although for wee gigs u can DI into the desk.not ideal but do-able.
4.Vocalists.You may be subject to public ritual fucking slaughter if u dare cup your hands round the mic,feedback city.dont do it.Stews sharpening his bowie knife as i type!If uv a sore throat get some "Vocalzones" outta the chemist when ur stockin up on rubbers.A pack of each will prob last u a year!Drink water rather than beer,yes its boring but you can get pissed when ur finished.And brush your teeth or gargle Listerine.I dont want my mics smelling like shit!(i do regularly soak the grills in Dettol though!)
5.IT CALLS FOR CAPS LOCK!PLEASE ARRIVE AT A TIME AGREED WITH THE SOUNDGUY TO GET EVERYTHING SET UP AND ALLOW ALL TO SOUNDCHECK.
6.Most important of all...Chill the fuck out!have fun,listen to the soundguy and dont get pissed before u go on!
no man i didn't say i didn't like the Earls what i did say (mean) was i dislike organising something that wasn't mine to organise to start with and bands should be better prepared for gigs.20 minutes to 'get it together' without a soundcheck isn't my idea of preparing for a gig.so come on all you guys,"for those about to rock!", make sure ALL your gear is working and at the gig with time to spare as it makes everything so much easier all round.'up the earls' and i hope Mal's voice is back to normal for their next show
RAWK NIGHT tomorrow at the Shadow Rooms,Larne.Please come along to support the Green party (or just to listen to some rockin tunes!)
I shall be helping the environment by arriving in my 65 mpg PA'mobile and not washing my hands or flushing the toilet.Come and say hello to me at the controls but dont shake hands unless ud like a sweet disease...
oh yeah bands...please arrive at a sensible hour!luv yas;)
(EDIT as outta posts..again! RE.BELOW>
cheers man,aye its a well odd layout what wi those dumb big pillars etc.dont think id rush back there to be honest as it was a bit stressful,u notice id more grey hairs at the end of the night!?feedback a problem,sound sorta reverberated around,ach im just makin excuses!lol
i'll let stew do it next time,hes got no hair to turn grey.i'll drop him off and run like fek,call him a week later when hes cooled down!
thanks to danny and all the bands.was decent turnout.hope it continues.
cheers man, and Danny for texting,you're welcome m8.reckon a lot of the problems with the odd shaped room could be sorted by putting the bands the opposite way round,not facing the bar and those big fuck off pillars!the place looks really well but isnt really laid out for full rock type bands.would be class for a DJ/club night as good DJ booth etc.
thanks again Danny for the business.
(Cheers Mal from the Earls for ur text,try them vocalzones,i swear by them)
our stews doin his nut at the mo cos people are movin mics,unpluggin leads and generally messing up his system at the rockin in the rosie gig.someone please buy him a non alcoholic cold drink as hes ridin the motorbike home.bands,please have mercy,dont twist his melons!
have a good one u guys (in the end)
(so much for sorting out the wiring hayhem from several weeks ago,who keeps fuckin up the wiring?i'll spank em on their bare botty)
good ol stew!we had to make er...slight adjustments to get sound earlier this afternoon as it was a freakin pile o worms!fuckin wires everywhere.lol.though i think someone from bairds was coming to sort out the PA.hopefully theyll get it done during the week.
i hope whoever may have damaged any of my mics etc tonight has the good grace to pay up for new ones should it come to that.i'll check em in the morning.
if anyones hiring stuff...ya break it ,ya bought it!
Big up them Hubes,see u at my live lounge party.:026:
oh,ps ..get down to this tomorrow in bangor
good one hels,and u darkprince badger baiter superstar DJ
the Rosie definitely was rocking last night after a few minor hiccups.it was just a bit of a headmelter when mics for one cab were swapped to another cab and drumkit mics were being used to sing through so my 'mic 1 for 4x12 cab' mysteriously turned to 'stage right vocal mic' list was quickly reassigned.as for rewiring the whole pa system that's another story which makes me think of a Hendrix song 'If Six Was Nine' as Andy will know 'if a six turns out to be nine-just rewire the motherfucker'.it was a good show and anybody who didn't turn up certainly missed spectacular performances from all the bands playing.thanks to Scott for getting it together:109:
nice one stew.he do the do!i think the rosie should follow the pavilions lead and have the PA amps etc all permanently hard wired so no fucker can mess with it.although i think they may have been trying to do that....but some fucker keeps messing with it!
well done stew,scotty and all bands.pity i couldnt hang around,was beating my rugrats with a big stick of an evening.
