DJ Reviews for The Port of Call

Helpful information for DJs and entertainers visiting The Port of Call provided by trusted members of

11/11/2016Function RoomSecond Floor via stairs
This review was provided by Disco Couture

Permanent wooden dancefloor

Haze/smoke allowed

No sound limiter

Air conditioned

No useable in-house lighting effects

No stage area

No effective blackout

PARKING: Inner city parking is complete lottery but at set up time you can normally get outside

ACCESS: Urgh - bring your own kit and its a 3 floor struggle via the steps.

FACILITIES: This is the bonus, they normally allow you to use the in-house system rather than lug everything upstairs, there are 4 speakers and a decent dmx light rig - with a touch screen . If you have to set up your own kit the dance floor isn't huge but you'll get on it

STAFF: Great nice team

POWER PROVISION: Short extensions (up to 5m) required

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Can be a totally easy or dead hard gig - be nice to the boss I say"

20/05/2016Function RoomSecond Floor via stairs
This review was provided by The Boogie Knight

Permanent wooden dancefloor

Low permanent stage

Decent house lighting rig available

No sound limiter

Blinds/curtains provided

Air conditioned

Haze/smoke prohibited

PARKING: I parked outside the building without problem but it's technically no-parking so you could get a ticket. The alternative would be one of the main car parks in Sunderland.

ACCESS: Access through door and up a couple of flights of stairs. Tiring but not particularly difficult.

FACILITIES: Dedicated area for DJ behind a booth so didn't need to set up booth which saved time.

STAFF: Excellent, friendly and helpful staff.

POWER PROVISION: Plenty of 13A sockets in easy reach

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "An absolutely beautiful venue this one. It's recently been refurbished and is genuinely stunning. They have an in-house KV2 PA system (10s I think, I ended up bring in a bass bin to bolster the sound), and some lovely lights which you can trigger with a touchscreen in the booth. Overall a lovely night in a lovely venue. Recommended."
