Much of March was spent doing what we do best in the event transport niche – supplying our trucking customers with driver-techs. Working with our neighbours round the corner at Moonlite Productions, Entertec provided two 7.5T trucks on different three week itineraries traversing the country, with a carefully crafted driver shift pattern delivering specific skill sets on certain days as required. March also saw us providing PA system services down at the Sport Relief Mile, [...]
Our trucking portfolio covers all aspects of event transport – from exhibitions and corporate events, to live concerts and touring. February 2014 saw Micky Pies on the road for a few weeks traversing the UK with The Straits – playing the music of Dire Straits to thousands of devout fans up and down the country. Next time you see a JT EventTruck on the road – could we be carrying kit for your favourite artist? [...]
Working with regular customer NSR Communications, our last event before Christmas involved an outside broadcast from St Paul’s Cathedral to a packed Paternoster Square for the annual carol services. Supplying a Midas Pro 2 and a plethora of microphones and cabling infrastructure, our engineers worked alongside the Cathedral Chapter to ensure every syllable uttered throughout each service was relayed through an EAW JFL series compact array to the hundreds of festive punters who couldn’t quite [...]
Being the season of goodwill, we were privileged to supply PA system services to Old Country Union’s charity bash “The Big C” – with every penny made on the door going to the Rennie Grove Hospice Care. After a fantastic night of drinking and dancing, in excess of £6000 was raised – the evening was in fact so successful the band is considering making this an annual event! The same night saw us supply complete [...]
Having turned away or sub-contracted out many jobs for larger fleet so far this year, after much chin scratching, we have ordered another fine addition to our MAN vehicle fleet in the form of our first tractor unit - a new TGX18.440, complete with new 45ft Megacube trailer. Due into operation by mid-October, number one driver Micky Pies is eagerly anticipating getting back behind the wheel of an artic... watch this space for where he [...]
Early July saw us team up once again with Guernsey based Joys Production Services, to supply audio and trucking services for a week-long conference in Jersey's Hotel-de-France. A combination of our EAW JFL series array, a Midas Pro 2, and the Joy's extensive Turbosound inventory took care of everything from table top discussions to cabaret jugglers – and we even saw an hour of sunshine after the de-rig! Other early summer activities included involvement with [...]
Working closely with Evolution Live, Entertec proudly supported the Bucks Armed Forces Day celebrations in Aylesbury Rugby Club on 28th June, supplying complete site production and electrical services. With a 10 man team on site, entertainment for the audience ranged from Hearing Dogs agility displays to X Factor's Misha B – all amplified through EAW loudspeaker systems, lit with Clay Paky & Robe LED fixtures, and powered by 4 generators & 3km of cable.
Booked by Pitstone-based Universal Event Production, Entertec were asked to provide PA system services to the UK album launch of "Settle" by the young and talented upcoming duo Disclosure. Complimenting UEP's inventory of D&B E3's, we supplied a tech, Midas Pro 2 out front, Yamaha M7CL on stage, D&B E9's, cabling infrastructure, RF and source kit galore to meet rider requirements – all squashed into a cosy 2nd floor venue buried deep in London's Dalston [...]
Always a busy time of year in the corporate market, May 2013 has been no exception. Entertec supplied PA system services to various events in Glasgow, London's Kings Cross Renaissance hotel, Heathrow T5 Hilton, Reading Stadium, Islington's Angel Building, and Café Royale. Far from being left on the sidelines, our trucks have been busy in Brussels, Munich, Paris, Lisbon and Lille, to name a few locations a little more exotic than the regular UK jaunts.
Music circuit veterans Metropolis Productions Ltd, a long standing client of Entertec, were offered an opportunity to work with Russian-based Dan Sultanov for his upcoming album launch. In a tiny event space for 70 set in the heart of Westminster, the Sultanov production team squeezed an almighty 10 piece band in for their debut showcase of "fresh British pop with a Russian twist". All amplified through D&B, mixed live on Midas, location recording by Grove [...]
