Director Live events

We have used ACE PA for the last few years to provide us with Sound & Lights for our Pink Floyd tribute show. We cannot fault the commitment and passion these guys have for setting up the equipment and achieving the best sound possible. Great set of lads to work with and nothing is too much trouble. Will alway use ACE PA if they are available.
