I've done a lot of sound/lighting gigs, my favourite piece of kit is my 2x 18" subwoofers - can't beat bass that rattles window panes!
Best show would be a big dance performance out in West Auckland, certainly was an eye opener with the amount of work we had to do!

I work full time in the lighting industry. Without my sharpie gigs will be but a giant mess of road cases ,gear and cable. Best show would have to be Muse a couple of years ago when they played Waitakery trust stadium and chch.

I used to be into it big time back on the West Coast, haven't done so much recently now I'm in Christchurch but hoping to get back into it at some stage...
Too hard to label a favourite gig though! Stage Challenge was always fun but obviously only ever played a small part in that.
Probably would be a big gig with local bands I organised (called the 'World Administration Tour 2004')
Equipment.. my silver case with all sorts of tools in :P

Do a lot of theatre tech at school. In charge of Sound for this year's show.
Obviously a decent sound desk is required for any event, size and capabilities depending on how demanding and other requirements.
Haha, yes! There is always a great shortage of tape around the place. Gaffa and insulation is a must for any event.

jurgensp99, I think my friend was doing a show up in Wanaka with gear from you guys. Or maybe that was a different show.
