I have worked at Blackley Gold club on numerous occasions, from an entertainer’s point of view, if you have lots of equipment, like I do, the loading can be a moderate workout as the function room is on the first floor, however there is a lift. As regards to acoustics, the stage is set at a slight diagonal to the dance floor and the main seating area giving the DJ a dilemma as to where to position the speakers for the best results in directional sound. In order to get a satisfactory and balanced acoustics with impressive results that I was happy with, I used FBT vertus line array speakers pointing diagonal and a separate Mackie speaker positioned near the main entrance door facing the seating area using wireless. The result sounded fantastic and I always get comments on how nice this system sounds every time I work here and use this configuration.
I often upload very short video’s in relation to venue’s, this particular video shows the function room in The Heaton Moor Gold club in Stockport. One of the first things I always pay attention to is ease of loading, some venues can be particularly difficult or time consuming to load in and out, naturally, this is important information for fellow DJ’s and entertainers who have never played here. Loading into this golf club is not too difficult and has a couple of access points, but both entrances involve at least 8 stairs, so nothing too drastic. The staff here are very friendly, professional, attentive and very helpful, I felt at home within minutes of arriving. The kitchen and catering here boast 5 star hygiene and the food taste great! The function room is pretty long, therefore a decent set of speakers that can project high definition sound would suit the room best. I used a set of of FBT vertus speakers and the acoustics was perfect. If you are local to this venue, and you are looking for a function room, the Heaon Moor golf club should be on your short list of places to go and see.ere to edit.
