Matt Halsall and the Gondwana Orchestra at Hallé St Peters

Matt Halsall Halle St Peters lighting by Hollowsphere

Band on the Wall and MGS productions called on our services to provide lighting for the Matt Halsall and the Gondawa Orchestra gig at Hallé St Peters.

We rose to the challenge and installed six ledj mini pix four bars to the rear of stage with eight ledj 9q8s to light front of house.

Adrian Ball controlled the rig during the event via an Avolites Pearl Tiger control surface.

The night was a full house and a memorable event in such a beautiful performance space.

Secret club lighting – Manchester

New lighting for a secret club in Manchester


Continuing the fascination with the Manchester warehouse club scene, the owners of the new secret club ( in North Manchester) & Sixthsound gave us a blank canvas to play with.



To bring life in the old tyre warehouse we fitted four small Ledj3hex12 pars to the columns, four Ledj 9Q8 RGBWpars over the dj booth with two Equinox Lightning Cracker 2 strobes and two Acme 25 watt dynamic scans. To enrich the atmosphere we supplied then with a huge QTX FH1500 haze machine. The DJ’s have full control of the led lights via a Transcencion LED Master 64 desk and the Equinox strobe controller at the dj table.

Given the relatively low cost of the installation, the results look excellent, plus as all the lighting gear is LED based, it has low power consumption and no lamps to replace.

The owners, DJ’s and punters are very pleased with the finished product.

The sound system comprises of a beefy Sixthsound 6 x TRS218 subs with 4 x TRS212 tops powered by MC2 E- series amplification, there is some “REAL” bass weight in there !!!


I do like the way that the owners of this club just get on with the job in hand, they are not big on social media yet these well packed events are kicking off.

Hmm… now then, I think a mirrorball in the centre will go down nicely.
