So we thought our other vans are amazing but wanted to kit out and update something as with time and technology we always need to move with it otherwise you tend to get left behind. We designed our new van so it’s has the newest pioneer controller with serato, loads of microphones and logic so not only can you perform or even plug in a live band we can also show you how to produce music out in the open air. It’s all electronic so you just press a button and the equipment slides out to you and we have ableton push pads and the speakers float. If we are out in the evening we also have star gazing lights at the back so you can feel like your on another planet. We use this for outreach programs, sports events, festivals and also private event so if you need something a little different this would be your best choice of public engagement.
