About the company and it's
Systems is owned and managed by Matthew & Coral Constable.
Working along side a pool of specialist engineers we have
had the pleasure of teaming up with a rather fantastic crew
who love the industry. Ashley Williams 'Top guy' our right
hand man, what better a sound engineer than someone who has
been surrounded by musicians all his life (Mum sings in a
band). Ashley obviously affected by this went to Northbrook
College to study music technology. We took Ashley on in 2000
and since then we haven't looked back! A few late nights on
Ash has now worked with some of the biggest names in the industry!
(Grooveryder & Fabio probably his favourite). Oli Clark (lighting
Dude) what can I say every sound and light company needs someone
with dreadlocks I think it has something to do with picking
up creative vibes !! Oli is a wiz with DMX controllers and
lighting and is a bit of a creative genius when it comes to
building a light show. These two manage our sound & lighting
crew. We have a fantastic road crew to many to mention but
I believe we are truly lucky in that we have found some very
hard working guys and girls who have true professional staying
power when it comes to working on the very demanding concert
As for us we
will start with Coral, Coral has been in the music business
for 14 years. Coral started singing in small venues around
Brighton at the tender age of 16, by 18 Coral had taken to
the substantial stage at the Antigua Music festival in the
West Indies. Several years later having recorded numerous
singles and sung in just about every single 5 star venue in
the UK & at numerous festival sites don't be surprised if
you see Coral on your telly next week. Equally don't be surprised
if when you turn up to a gig we are producing you may catch
Coral rigging some Macs, plugging up an amp rack or programming
a desk (wonder woman).
As for Matt self
confessed amplifier anorak and speaker pervert Matt can tell
you the make and model of most speakers just by looking through
the grill (sad but true). Matt has been in the music business
for 17 years starting as a DJ playing his first gig at 13,
at 15 Matt had a regular spot in a nightclub! Matt had a Saturday
night DJ residency through the 90's whilst freelance engineering
for other sound & lighting companies and various clients.
Having promoted many bands and acts working in the theatre
and crewing for Iron Maiden (extremely hard work) it is fair
to say he has paid his dues in the entertainment industry.
In the late 90's
Matt & Coral began hiring out sound & lighting equipment starting
off in a tiny lock-up in Hove. We are proud to say 6 years
later we are now relocated to a substantial warehouse in Lewes
that we can just about squeeze our vast hire stock into and
have traded in our transit van for a rather tasty 7.5 ton
truck (still hiring that 32 tonner). We hope by the end of
this year to pluck two more apprentice's from Northbrook College
as our diary is looking rather on the full side. If you fancy
it drop us a line.
Our lasted acquisition
is something we are all very proud of. Baby Josephine was
born to Matt & Coral on Matt's birthday last year. Obviously
sleep has been become a rarity but we are very lucky in that
at 10 months Josephine is already dancing and showing some
promising squeaks along to Corals latest single. Josephine
has already met Grandmaster Flash and IceT and has a nice
collection of signed gig memorabilia. However we feel it is
till to early to take Josephine to Health & Safety meetings
as she insists at falling asleep at random and we would not
want people to think we perceive council officials as boring.
Enough said please remember
"It is nice to be important but more important to be nice"
"respect is due to the festival crew etc etc"
