Sound Hire for SOHO House Event
"FLIPSIDE WERE RECOMMENDED BY A CURRENT SUPPLIER OF SOHO HOUSE. THE COMMUNICATION LEADING UP TO AND DURING THE EVENT WAS EXCELLENT THROUGHOUT."
SOHO House approached Flipside needing to hire sound equipment for an internal function in the unusual location of an NCP car park, which turned out to be a great venue and a challenge for our sound engineers.
SOHO House is a private members club, founded back in 1995 for people who work in the creative industries and has since expanded overseas to locations throughout Europe, North America and Asia. They also own restaurants, cinemas, workspaces and even spas!
Rather than at one of their properties, SOHO opted to host an internal company event at an NCP car park providing a grey but a very cool backdrop.
Quick turnaround for the client
After an initial enquiry came in from SOHO House, we acted quickly in order to get a quote out to them as the initial enquiry landed with us just three days before the event. Not only this, the amount of wireless equipment quickly doubled due to their requirements so we were on our toes to ensure we could help SOHO House deliver an awesome event at this unique venue.
SOHO Sound Equipment Hire
For the main PA system, we deployed two TW Audio M12 powered by the TW Audio SYS-RACK-L with a Lab Gruppen PLM+. The car park was long, and the stage orientation was not made clear to us ahead of the job so we covered ourselves for every eventuality and bolstered the system with some delay EV loudspeakers.
From the initial quote, we soon found out SOHO needed a lot more equipment as we jumped from four wireless lapel mics up to eight and we also provided a few handheld mics for audience questions.
Last, but by no means least, a great sounding and reliable eight-way Sennheiser package was provided by us for the event, coupled with the Sennheiser A 2003 directional paddles to ensure no dropouts occurred.
David Tecke, Head of House IT for UK and EMEA came across Flipside via a recommendation from one of the current SOHO House suppliers and despite the short notice we were delighted to be able to help SOHO House host an excellent and interesting internal company event. We love to hear both constructive and positive feedback from those in attendance and as a sound hire company, it's music to our ears when we are involved in an event like this.
