28 Nov A Fantastic Few Weeks of DJs & AV
October 2014 leading into November was a very interesting period for us. We had many special events to produce within an extremely short amount of time.
We were almost back-to-back with event productions during most weeks, it was challenging indeed, but it was a challenge we rose to and at the end of it all; we came out triumphant! Lol
Our clients are all extremely happy with the services we provided with several saying that ‘this is the best DJ / sound / lighting or AV production’ that they have ever had. That is exactly what we want to hear at VNV.
Thank you to all the clients that procured our services for the events featured below, but also not forgetting those that used us for the smaller charity events, conferences, film screenings. The 1 Lombard Street wedding, and Westerham Golf Club wedding as well as Hamley’s & Fortnum & Mason Xmas window launches were just amazing to work at.
Here is a quick summary of just some of the best events we produced over the last 6 weeks:
SBC Awards 2014 @ The House Of Commons (Member’s Dining Room)
LSBC 2014 was a wonderful event to award exceptional young people at one of the most important and prestigious buildings in London.
VNV provided full services including stage & set build, stage lighting, audio, plasma screens & camera to send live visuals to the screens.
The on-site technical production team Dean, Clarence & Jon…
This was all executed very well and the VNV team got a special mention from MP Diane Abbott for our hard work. We have already been asked to do it all over again next year.
Lion King’s 15th Year Anniversary Party @ St Martin In The Field
Now this was an exciting one! VNV were commissioned to provide DJ & AV services for none other than ‘The Lion King’ musical’s 15th year anniversary! This was at the very distinct and unique crypt area of St Martin’s In The Field Trafalgar Square and was one of the best parties we have DJ’ed at. The energy and enthusiasm for music and the dance floor was second to none.
We built the stage, DJ area and created the lighting to compliment the Lion King’s theme.
The event organiser of the event from Lion King / Walt Disney said “Well done to you VNV. Your DJ was amazing. This is the best party we have had in 15 years without a doubt, you even managed to get one of our bosses, who has been here from the beginning of the production on the dance floor for the first time”.
A Well Known Author’s Book Launch @ Fortnum & Mason’s 4th Floor Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon
Perfectly produced audio for over 300 guests across the 3 areas of the 4th floor tea salon with both white & black speakers provided to compliment the décor of each area.
Correct sound levels were key for some very important speeches from the Fortnum & Mason CEO as well as the author himself and singing from a special guest piano player.
South Side Salon…
An Airline’s Reception Evening @ Fortnum & Mason’s Gallery Restaurant
The white speakers were out again, this time with some uplighters to set the scene for the airline’s special guests. We have never had any airhostesses in our pics before, so although a very small event in comparison to some of the others we like this pic a lot!
EYBN 2014 @ The Landmark London
VNV supplied a DJ as well as all of the audio management for this prestigious event with some noteworthy guest speakers. The slick, but powerful Turbosound system we provided was crystal clear for all the speeches, the performance by The Voice UK finalist Jermaine Jackman and also helped to get the dance floor shaking once the party started of course.
The DJ wasn’t too bad either… 😉
No Scrunchie Awards 2014 @ L’oreal Academy London
This was truly an excellent evening in a venue we didn’t know existed! The modern styled venue more than befitted this award show for hair & beauty salon owners. VNV, as versatile as ever provided a pink carpet run to the stage, pink carpet on the stage, black draping behind the stage to make it look even smarter, stage & mood lighting, amazing sounding AV PA system and a technician to smoothly manage it all. He even played some ‘divalicious’ songs for the fashion show!
A Beautiful Wedding @ The Berkeley Hotel, Knightsbridge
We were honoured to be the DJ & AV suppliers for this intimate Greek wedding at the breath-taking Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. The picture below alone shows it’s ‘wow-factor’, but does not show the warmth, laughter and excitement at this wedding…
However, these do…
The couple were music lovers through and through, and so were their guests. They danced and sang along to every single song. We absolutely smashed it, but don’t take my word for it. The couple, both bride and groom gave the following feedback:
“Dean you absolutely nailed it!!! That was the best party ever! Well done.
We couldn’t be more grateful, thank you so much for participating in this lovely memory,
Let us know if there is anything more we can do for you.
“Dean, you have certainly exceeded expectations!! Well done my friend! Look out as we may need your help in the future.
Everybody had an amazing time. I could not recommend you highly enough!
Feel free to use those pictures; they are beautiful and I think your lights made a huge difference.
Let us know if you need anything from us.”
A Graduation Ceremony @ Pearson, Strand
A graduation day for children aged 6-15 with exceptional mathematical ability. It was a lovely mini-ceremony with refreshments, certificates and photos for those who have taken the Maths Factor course. VNV built the stage for them to collect their awards in front of their adoring parents, and also ensured the audio was correct on the day.
Hosted by Carol Voderman (who wore one of our lapel mics for the whole day! Lol)…
I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a portfolio events for us to be proud of. We hope to see you over the Xmas period to give us even more stories to tell in 2015 and beyond!
Until next time… 🙂
