We have had our Yahama C3 for a couple of years now and we love seeing it going out on hire. It is one of the most aesthetically pleasing instruments in our large collection. This week it will be going out twice. First of all it was delivered to the West End of Glasgow for Locust the Opera at Cottiers. It was then moved across the river to the BBC building at Pacific Quay for a Radio 3 event. So far the BBC at Pacific Quay has proven to be the most popular destination for the C3. Locus the Opera is an operatic murder mystery that tells the story of the Rocky Mountain locust, an iconic species whose swarms blackened the skies of North America in the 1800s but suddenly disappeared forever at the turn of the twentieth century. The piece is performed by an orchestra composed of both American and Scottish musicians. The piano looked great in the wonderful venue space at Cottiers.
Speaking of orchestras we also just received delivery of another 25 RAT stands Jazz stands bringing our collection to a total of 50+. These are the best music stands available, a truly reliable and well built piece of equipment. No need to contend with the usually flimsy music stands these ones both look fantastic and have the build quality required for professional gigging musicians. With this many in our collection we have enough to supply even the biggest of bands.
A few weeks ago we supplied DJ equipment to St.Andrews for the Kate Kennedy Club Charity Ball. This week we're sending some more DJ gear to St.Andrews for another ball. This times its the Welly Ball at Kinkell Byre. The Welly Ball will host 850 dinner guests donning black tie and wellies for a drinks reception and dinner. Afterwards an additional 1150 guests will arrive for the various DJ sets. The annual ball will raise money for mental health charity Charlie Waller Trust. We’ve sent equipment for quite a few events to the Kinkell Byre over the years and always appreciate the scenic beauty of the venue. It is well worth checking out the venues website as it is an exceptionally beautiful space.
As well as the DJ equipment going to St.Andrews we have some other events happening closer to home. Our new DJ equipment which includes the new Pioneer CDJ 3000s and the Pioneer DJM V-10 are going to St Luke’s for the Beyond the Green Event on Saturday 6th. The COP26 fringe event will feature 3 days of live music, art, guest speakers and plant based solutions for a greener, cleaner, healthier planet. This is one of many events taking place around Glasgow this weekend tying in with the Global Climate Conference.
Both the CDJ 3000s and the DJM V10 are out again the following day, this time to SWG3 for Honey Dijon. The renowned DJ, producer, activist and fashion icon will headline a party to celebrate SWG3's radical new 𝗕𝗢𝗗𝗬𝗛𝗘𝗔𝗧 system. 𝗕𝗢𝗗𝗬𝗛𝗘𝗔𝗧 is a pioneering system that will capture body heat, transport it to boreholes drilled 150-200 metres deep into our floors, where we can store it for days, weeks or months to be used as energy for the building - with potential savings of up to 70 tonnes of carbon per year. SWG3’s big sustainable party is perfect for a COP26 event.
