Dec 20: Now Selling New Dutch Grand Piano Shells In The UK

New Dutch Grand Piano Shells for sale!

We’ve been offering Piano Shells for hire for a few years now. However, having had lots of people ask us about purchasing shells, especially during lockdown, we’re delighted to announce that we can now sell them too, as an official Dutch Grand reseller in the UK!

Raise your game as a performer for gigs or video shoots; or choose one for your venue, the legs fold inside, they come with a protective cover, and of course there’s no tuning needed!

Fixed prices for black, white, and red shells, other colours available upon request.

December is probably a great time to get one as we have no idea what will happen to prices after Brexit is confirmed!

Dec 20: Tech Consulting On New Zoom Panto

It’s been an absolute pleasure providing audio consultancy and tech support for this amazing new Zoom musical / Panto, written especially for the Zoom medium and for children with special needs.

It’s called Dream Catcher and opens on Friday 4th December for two weeks!

repmusic provided technical (audio, visual, and Zoom) support for the show alongside live show designer Ash Day, enabling the cast to perform from home and achieving the best visuals and sound possible with the current restrictions, which included a rehearsal run through England’s second national lockdown.

It’s really good fun with a fantastic cast and a nice alternative to the Panto if you can’t get to one this year!

Dec ’18: 5* Review for Cambridge Jazz Festival Chet Baker Performance

We were delighted to receive a 5* review for Robin’s Chet Baker show at the Cambridge Jazz Festival 2018, from Kind Of Jazz website and blog.

“Heartfelt and engaging tribute to Chet, shining a light on some of the lesser-known aspects of his long career.. performing a stripped back version of My Funny Valentine. The vocal was spellbinding, and when Brady came in on trumpet, the audience burst into applause…a beautifully performed and utterly engaging show..” Matthew Ruddick, Kind Of Jazz.
