“The great thing about Rossco is that, apart from being incredibly nice chaps to deal with, we simply brief them on the job and let them get on with it. Which means that it's effortless and stress-free for me. And it always sounds brilliant.”
Great sound makes a great party
We love to work with party organisers to make private parties rock! We’ve done lots of them and in our experience, if you’re organising a party, these are the things that make a difference:
- At the outset, it’s important to get a subjective description of the effect that the host would like to achieve and the experience they’d like their guests to have. We can then work with you to satisfy their desires. This leaves your client feeling integral in the design of the system. They become proud of it, tell all their mates, and they have a great time as a result.
- It goes on as late as necessary. It is never too late for us to finish. And we won’t start getting out until the last guest has left.
- Let hosts get excited about ideas. Could we do this? Can we do that? How about….? We always entertain the possibility and it is never a ‘no’. Most sound companies will discourage creativity by inventing reasons that they cannot happen, when really they just can’t be bothered, or it presents an obstacle that they simply can’t see a way around. There is always a solution, and if you’d like us to, we’re happy to investigate it.
“This was a 'no-expense spared' job that had to be perfect in every way. Yes, we needed the very best sound equipment, but more importantly we needed a team of people with the right attitude, who we could trust and who would be enjoyable to work with.”
“This was an important event for us. We needed to be sure that the event could actually happen, and we needed a safe pair of hands that we could rely on completely to deliver the sound. Rossco delivered on both counts.”
“Ross did a site visit and he really knows his stuff. I know a bit about sound, but Ross completely understands all the acoustic issues and designed a sound system that was visually sympathetic to the room and delivered impressively from an audio perspective.”
“With the venue located in a remote part of the Mediterranean with no local audio hire companies nearby, it was essential to be fully self-contained and have on board equipment that would cover any breakdown or eventuality.”
“This party featured West End performers in their scintillating costumes doing a 40-minute showcase of the musical 'Chicago'. It needed a sound company who could bring the excitement of the show alive in a small venue and Rossco did just that.”
“I can virtually hand over the brief to Rossco. If it’s a band then I simply give him the technical rider and he speaks directly to the band or their manager and sorts the whole thing out. He takes the burden off me completely, but critically he always keeps me in the loop which is reassuring.”
