November Update

Hey Music Lovers!

It's been an incredible few months with tonnes of new artist under our belt who were more all than happy with the service we provided. To name a few from the last few weeks: Paul Young, Norman Watt-Roy, Brother and bones, Dan Gordon, DecatonicsWille And The Bandits

Like I mentioned that's only a few from the last couple of weeks. On average the company covers 12 acts/events a week (not including festivals which can be 40+ per day) which totals up to a lot of happy Pulse PA Hire users!

Five systems went out over the fireworks weekend and they all went with a bang! (see what I did there?) Just a good example that we don't only cater for live music but all types of events. Weddings, parties, corporate events. Although we haven't catered for a funeral yet (touch wood)

I currently have a strong database for Sound Engineers and we only use the most reliable and professional. If I personally can't make the event then I will endeavor to provide a suitable engineer for your price tag. I never let an engineer go out for anything less than minimum wage so please don't expect free engineers, but do expect best price to quality ratio. 

By coming through us you also have access to our plentiful stock at reduced rate, and in some cases FREE! If you use you own engineers, that's fine, but if they need equipment then please ask. Bargains can still be had.

New stock is arriving every week so if you need it just ask, I'm also in talks with a few other local hire companies to increase stock and availability even further.

There's tonnes more going on at the mo, but I'm going to let your eyes rest for a while. I will endevour to update this page a little more regularly. Any feedback of what you'd like to hear more/less of is always welcomed.

Feel free to follow us and share the bargains on:

This weekend we are lucky enough to cover all of the sound for beautiful little festival near wareham called TONEFEST!

Band and artists at this event are such as NIZLOPI, PRONGHORN, BOOTLEG BLONDIE, Pluse tonnes of pretty cool festival acts, every single one I'll be happy to invite home for tea and biscuits. Such positive vibes and a relaxed atmostphere make this festival one of my favourites. Trust me I've done a few...

We'll also be using our NEXO gear on both the stages and our famous* line array system delivering beautiful audio clarity which one would struggle to find else where. Also our operators , we only use the best, will have our SOUNDCRAFT SI COMPACT desks to use.

Our lighting designer/operator for the festival is JORDON COOPER who we can't recomend highly enough.We have black out tents which will mean that lights can be use throughout the day.

Unfortunately, for those of you without tickets, the festival has sold out. But if you're reading this and you're going to be there come over to the main stage and say 'HI' to the sound crew. They might even give you a free coffee if you mention the blog ;)


*Not actually famous but is pretty darn popular and not many people actually realise that it ours!

Three Festival Weekend!

So this weekend I will be attempting to manage not one, not two but a three festival weekend! That means I'm providing systems and/or engineering all weekend long. My weekend kicks off with Wonky Donk in Lytchett Matravers, followed by Slades Farm Festival and finally Grooves on the Green in Ashley Cross.

The Wonky Donk Festival in Lytchett Matravers returns for it's second year this year after it’s very sucessful debut last summer. This year its bigger, better and longer. The festival is situated on a retired donkey farm in Halls Road, Lytchett Matravers in Poole. You can see loads of really great bands including... The Bonsai Pirates, The Admiral ShineysidesThe Jack Ratts and Milk Machine.

Slades Farm Festival is a community event with heaps going on! It's going to be an interesting mix of music, sports and entertainment. There should be some quaility music happening over the weekend. If you get chance you should check out Brothers Grimmer!

Grooves On The Green is going to be a cracker this year! For those of you that don't know where it is it's held in the grassy square over in Ashley Cross (Poole). I have worked at this event in previous years but I'm really looking forward to this years event especially working with The Agency, PronghornDisco's Out (Murder's In) and Mutant Vinyl.

It's going to be a crazy weekend but it'll be worth it... further updates to follow :)

Nizlopi @ The Joiners

It has been such a busy week and it's only Wednesday! I have to say I am looking for forward to engineering for my good friends Nizlopi tomorrow at The Joiners in Southampton tomorrow. I had such a good time engineering for them at their last two sell out shows at The Borderline in London. 

You can still get a few tickets for tomorrows show Here

My Adventures at Blissfields Festival 2013

This is just a sample of my handy work from Blissfields Festival 2013. It was a pleasure engineering for both The Cramatics on the Thursday evening and the fantastic Disco's Out (Murder's In) on Friday afternoon. I really enjoyed working at Blissfields Festival it was my first year there, hopefully there will be more to come.

Summer bargains!

Blissfields and rock!

Blissfields was  incredible! Gutted that we couldn't stay longer. We operated front of house for The awesome Cramatics (who are definitely ones to watch) on Thursday and the incredible disco's out murders in. Festival with positive vibes and some of the best up and coming acts around.

I've had to leave festival bliss (see what I did there?) behind to head to Mr Kyps, in poole, for the heavy and best tribute to metallica, MENTALLICA. One extreme to the other but these guys always but on a good show. If you're into the heavier side of things these guys are a must!

Pete Docherty

A week a go we had the pleasure of working with Pete Docherty (from Baby Shambles and the Libertines fame)

It was at Mr Kyps and yet again it was a full house. Pete did a selection of songs throughout his career and everyone loved it even the hardcore fans.

Well worth seeing!

Two Sell out shows for Nizlopi!

A couple of weekends ago Pulse PA Hire were privileged enough to work with the fantastic Nizlopi covering two sell out shows at The Borderline in London. If you get a chance, and I insist that you do, you HAVE to see them this year. They're only doing a select couple of shows up and down the country. Even if you have to travel a bit; believe me it'll be worth it.

Here are a couple of links to some good ole youtube links

Busy weekends

I hope you managed to catch a bit of sun and live music this weekend.

Another great weekend had by us at Pulse PA Hire. We had a busy Friday! A Comedy show @ The Britannia Inn and The Cuban Brothers @ Mr Kyps.
Then on Saturday we had Bootleg Blondie at Mr Kyps, plus Percy was FoH engineering at Bournemouth O2 Academy for Bandalism.
Then rounding off the weekend @ Mr Kyps with Brompton Mix, Eleven 11 and Lucky 13. It was great to see so many people out to support local bands!

Percy was lucky enough to get to spent some time with Rick Butler after he was admiring my handy work.

This weekend has been good!
