They took the stress out of what could have been a difficult project by their impeccable service and attention to detail.
We needed sound, lights, staging, specialised music stands and dBS were able to arrange our needs effortlessly.
I constantly came up with new ideas for our event – therefore changing the original brief thinking this might be a problem but dBS Solutions were able to tweak the spec to how we needed without any fuss or glitches.
A truly professional outfit that catered for our every need and I feel we had a lot of needs on this one!
I remember when we started this, we were overwhelmed by the magnitude of the project. All that stress was soon alleviated because of the outstanding attention to detail by dBS Solutions.
I am so happy we chose dBS. Many people commented on how good our event sounded and looked and all of that was down to their great team.
I look forward to working with this great and highly effective crew again in the future sometime!
“I wanted to thank you and your team for working on this event and providing impeccable professional service. Sam and Darren were excellent and very relaxed even in some pressured situations. Thank you again for helping us with this event. We truly appreciate it.”

“From start to finish dBS Solutions provided a professional and personable service that exceeded our expectations. Working to a tight deadline the team accommodated our requests without reducing the quality of service.”
“The product provided by dBS Solutions was of fitting quality for our international brand and was installed discreetly yet effectively. The staff at dBS are highly knowledgeable about the industry but could also relate to those who are less literate with technology.”
The Hamleys Group.
“From my initial meeting with DBS-Solutions I knew that they would deliver a great service for our planned event, I was not disappointed. From arriving on site the crew were courteous, clean and very knowledgeable.”
“DBS Solutions have helped Warrington Wolves to raise the bar for all our future events, and I can confirm that DBS will be apart of them.”
I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all of your hard work on the Drystone Stage this year. You were all absolutely fantastic! There was such a positive vibe backstage all weekend, with so many people commenting on how pleasant and productive it felt. It’s a real testament to all of your professional skills that you’re able to make what is a particularly busy stage work so seamlessly, providing a great experience for performers and audience alike. I’m very proud of everything you achieved, and proud to be part of such a great working team. Solfest Drystone Stage definitely feels like a standard to be proud of, and people notice it. Reviewers comment on the quality of the production and the programme, and over the years you’ve cemented what is a very enviable reputation. Seriously, well done! It’s the quality of the whole package that puts artists at their ease and supports them to give of their best once they get on-stage, and collectively you delivered that quality in spades.
This year felt particularly great – the improved sound quality, the ultra-efficient turnarounds; the opportunity for performers to have their performances professionally and efficiently recorded; the attention to detail, in the quality of production as well as the care given to performers backstage; the hard graft during rig and de-rig; the seamless way that everyone worked and carried out their work to a very high standard. All of these things meant that Solfest Drystone was a great stage, and the feedback I’ve had personally so far on the stage has been tremendous.
Thank you again for all your hard work – it’s hugely appreciated. Well done everyone!

“Once again, a massive thank you from all of us for all your hard work yesterday. The lighting was absolutely perfect for what we wanted to achieve and made all the difference both to the look and atmosphere of all the spaces. We had lots of compliments on the lighting and décor last night and I think it definitely helped to set the tone for the evening and make an impact from the minute people arrived. All your help through the planning stages and of course your non-stop hard work throughout the event was greatly appreciated – it was an important event for us, and it made such a difference for us that we could trust the lighting was in safe hands!”
A huge thank you for all your hard work yesterday at the BBC Philharmonic’s Family Concert. It was a really terrific concert that was enjoyed by the almost capacity Bridgewater Hall audience. You all worked so hard to make it such a success, for which I am very grateful.
We’ve already had some lovely feedback from the public and indeed members of the Salford Family Orchestra, who had ‘the best time’ it seems. None of this would have been possible without your co-operation, goodwill and patience Thanks Again.

“A huge thank you to you all for making the Wonder project such a success last week. Your amazing enthusiasm, energy, creativity and hard work was truly remarkable. It has given me great personal pleasure to work with your team on this complex and often demanding project, but the audio/visual installation and the three performances made it all worthwhile. From the feedback we have already received, I know this project reached and inspired a lot of people who might otherwise not have known about the International Year of Astronomy and the 40th anniversary of the Moon Landings and indeed the 200th anniversary of Haydn’s death. Many Thanks.”
BBC Philharmonic Project Manager.
“We wanted to put on a special show for our local fans and also give hardworking local bands a chance to perform with a great stage, PA and light setup. We wanted Chris and his team at dBS Solutions to work with us at The Parr Hall as we knew we could trust them to provide a top class service all night and help the event run smoothly. The sound was as good as any show I have been to at the Parr Hall and the lights just as good as Kasabian’s visually stunning light show; we could not of asked for a better night. We look forward to working with dBS Solutions in the future.”
Craig Tarry Exile Parade Management
“Thank you very much for providing the lighting for our community carol concert this year. Lighting is vital to turning our bare vehicle shed into an inviting concert venue and I was delighted with the solution you provided.”
“Thanks for your support”

Thanks again for your amazing service last week.
The Stella McCartney fashion show at LIPA was a 1 day 45 minute show, which would play host to a 15 minute fashion show showcasing some of Stella McCartney’s latest designs, as well as performance from signed acts Candy Payne and Palladium. The seats were selling at up to £500 each and the front row would include Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono and George Martin alongside an audience of celebrities. There was no room for error, and equipment quality and reliability were paramount.
After the initial production meeting I realised that for this gig I would require a bigger monitor setup than was available in house, with image a real important factor. dBS Solutions were able to provide me with an Ohm TRS 112 Monitor system, with a Yamaha LS9 console. The console was great as it allowed both me and guest engineers to operate monitors in a small footprint, with all the processing being done within the console, as well as the ability to recall scenes through what was a fast moving show where time was of the essence. The wedges had a great low stage profile, while still providing Crystal clear sound to the band.
Overall dBS Solutions in what was a very short time frame were able to provide us with a very well prepped monitor system which allowed the show to go smoothly, and to the highest quality. I would happily choose dBS Solutions again for the professionalism, sound advice and eye for detail.

“The music video for Fire Walk With Me captures the live energy of the band. The lights supplied by dBS Solutions really helped to create the live show show effect on tape. dBS Solutions did a great job designing the lighting.”
