Hi there -

We need to borrow the spare pa / decks / mics / stands / mixer for a gig at mono in glasgow on the 26th of november. Can the sound folk make sure it doesn't get loaned out etc on that date. We'll have it back on the 28th.
thanks!

cool..

the "Forest Hire" PA is broken at the moment.

3 of our 4 Mackies are with Red Dog music awaiting repair, they are aware it is urgent.

Yesterday, we where given a 600w PA by Ronnie's Mobile Disco. it is also a bit broke. we are working on getting it fixed as a matter of urgency.

Ryan, what do you need, exactly for the Mono gig? don't worry it will be provided!


Sound Love.

N.

We already have a booking that has been arranged for some time for Wednesday 26th November.

They need the PA and the decks.

hey guys -

so - nix says there should be enough PA gear for two events if we close the cave those days. I hope this is actually correct. However, we need to steal the spare decks. can we just tell this crew that they are broken and have them hunt elsewhere. As it will cost forest £230 to hire outside gear I think Forest Biz takes priority but if people disagree i will hunt something down somehow.

Psst. Lets hope these dudes can't read the BB. I know they're musicians, but you never know.

How dare you Swith? I know loads of musicians and I can name at least 1 of them that can read.

Good day sir....I Said Good day!

So.. we now have a new PA! (well, 'new' is an overstatement)

"WENDY" is a 600w traditional PA with massive/heavy speakers and a 6 channel mixer/amp ..4 channels working.

sounds nice, better for DJs than bands, but working.

Yesterday, the brilliant Matt helped and we fixed it for the princely sum of 50p

"Wendy" was kindly donanted by "RONNIE'S MOBILE DISCO"

also..

The Mackies might be back from repair today.. I'll keep you posted.

THE MACKIES ARE BACK!

and they work, and we have new stands for them.

so.. ryan.. there is no worries about your PA, apart from the decks and mixer... (are you sure you need record players? will 2 minijacks for the iPods do?)

but I am still working on getting them.


all the kit will be ready for you on the 22nd clearly labled and waiting in the action room.
