|11/11/2016||Function Room||Second Floor via stairs|
This review was provided by Disco Couture
Permanent wooden dancefloor
No sound limiter
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"
|20/05/2016||Function Room||Second 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
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."
