What People Have Said About Astralsound

A lot of our first-time callers become long-standing clients, and a good proportion of new business comes our way from personal referrals. We think both these facts are a good advertisement for our standard of service, but realise that what we say ourselves is probably less persuasive than what others say about us.

If you would like to make a comment yourself, you can email us, or post comments on our Facebook Page.

Thank you so much Tony

You guys were so wonderful. Always a pleasure and relief to be working with such a great team. Well great another year over and so enjoyed by many. Terrific sound for From the Jam. I thought they were amazing and a dream to host and work with too.

Till next year 4th August. Save the date!

Much thanks again

Kate and Chris, after another Oakfest at the Royal Oak, Tetbury, 2017.

Thank you so much for making the band sound so good on June 11th.

We all had an amazing time - everyone loved having a live band and said it was a real treat.

Thank you for being part of the evenings team!

Alice, for whom we provided the PA system and sound engineer for a performance by Ushti Baba, 2016.

Really good - the best sound I have heard all year!

Dame Janet Trotter, after we provided the sound system for a public speaking event, 2016.

Thank you so much for last Friday. Hairy at points but considering we were all winging it a bit, it was by any measure a great success, in no small part thanks to you. Really happy with the sound.

Mike, one of the promoters and organisers of a tribute to Mick Dolan at the Bacon Theatre on 18 September 2015.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and all your team for your wonderful contribution to ACP this year ONCE AGAIN!

Kate, one of the organisers of Art Couture Painswick, 2014.

Having finally decompressed after the wedding and back to work I just wanted to write and say a massive thank you for all of the hard work and advice you gave to make our wedding day such a special (and stress free) day.

I know you had a very long day and certainly worked your socks off but I hope that we made it as pleasurable as possible? We appreciate your efforts massively, it was a pleasure to have you around and I thought the sound was brilliant.

We were given many many compliments on how good the band were and I know, from my own job as an engineer, that a large part of the reason for the compliments is the efforts of the people behind the scenes.

Should you ever need a testimonial I would be happy to write one and will certainly recommend you to anyone that asks.

Oli, after we provided sound and lighting for the ceremony, band, and disco at his wedding, 2014.

The system we hired for our village show this year was perfect. Can you please pencil us in for the same system again next year?

Phil, Tibberton Show, 2013.

Thank you so much for your great sound last Wednesday it was of course no more or less than you do every time we work together the Tops!

Dave Jones (promoter and regular client), after we provided the sound for a sell-out concert of Ben Waters at Vonnies in Charlton Kings, 2013.

Thanks so much for doing the PA for us/Mango Jam last night. I thought the band sounded great - it all worked so well.

Lizzie, one of the organisers of the Winter Medical Ball in Cheltenham Town Hall, 2013.

Sorry it's taken so long but just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all your efforts on Thursday! All the guests as well as the performers really appreciated what you did and had a great night.

Sam, Project Manager at Brightfest, 2013.

Just wanted to say thank you so, so much for being such a fantastic sound person! I really couldn't believe how you managed to slot everyone in without any fuss, changing everything around for such a range of acts. You really made it seem effortless but I know it was a lot of hard, and at times, wet work. To have to put everything away and then come back and set up again for another long and brilliantly successful day is such a lot to ask of one person. I have total respect for your professional ability and also think you are a lovely person!

Thank you times 100 again Tony - hope you have a quiet week ahead.

Alison, one of the organisers of Art Couture Painswick, 2012.

The band are very pleased to have you on board again.

Mike, from Westbourne Circus, on finding we could cover their next gig, 2012.

Just a very quick note to say thank you again for all your hard work on Monday. With everything happening at once, I really appreciated you just quietly getting on with things and working with the DJ to make it all happen!

An absolute pleasure to work with you and I will look forward to working with you again next time I am in the area!

Isabel (a professional wedding planner), after we provided sound systems for a wedding at the Hare & Hounds Hotel near Tetbury, 2012.

Just wanted to thank you for a great service on Monday for our public meeting, everything worked fine and your expertise was much appreciated and it helped the event to run smoothly.

Jon, after hiring a public address system for a question-and-answer session with candidates for the Gloucestershire Police and Crime Commissioner election, 2012.

Thank you very much indeed for providing the sound system at the Church on Friday and at such short notice. There were large numbers of mourners and many of those standing at the back of the church have told us that they could hear as clear as crystal, even the children's voices. The 2 microphones were easy to use and much better that the church one! We will certainly recommend you to everyone and thank you very much indeed.

Ros, after her husband's funeral, 2012. When we asked for permission to publish her email, she added: People are still commenting on how beautifully clear the service was.

Just wanted to reiterate how grateful I am for the quality of everything you did for last night, it really made a big difference.

Happy new year

Dom, landlord of the Swan at Southrop, after we supplied a system, sound-engineer and stage lighting for the band at their New Year's Eve party, 2011/12.

Sorry it has taken us so long to email to say thank you, but straight after the party we were rushing round organising tidying up and then we went off on honeymoon. Now back to reality though!!

We just wanted to say thank you so much for your help and the very professional service we received - we were very pleased!

Best wishes

Sian and Andy, after we provided a Disco System and effects lighting for their wedding reception, 2011.

Firstly, thanks so much for your usual excellent service, Ruby no less asked me who is your sound man he was fantastic and followed it up with an email saying what fun they had and what a great gig it was. Please also pass on my thanks to your crew.

Dave Jones, in his letter to us after we covered Ruby Turner at the Bacon Theatre in September 2010.

Many thanks for a great tour!

Johnny Coppin, after his 2009 All On A Winter's Night tour.

Just a note to tell you that every single person who has texted/spoken to us since last night has complimented the improved quality of sound. Even the lady wife said there was a very obvious difference. So thank you!

Mark Nye, from The Bridge, November 2009.

I have been using Astralsound for over two years now. They are always professional and could make my Nan sound like Leona Lewis!!

Vince Freeman, 2008.

We have been invited by Will to another wedding in Wilts in September & we hope its you guys on the sound again, a real pro outfit.......

Tobias Jacob, from The School of Trobar, 2008.

I'm very happy that we rented from Astralsound - Tony Lloyd provided us with exceptional service, and an excellent set of equipment. The quality of the sound was superb, and as we played everything from vintage tango to Kraftwerk it was essential to have rich level control and solid power, which is very unusual to find for such a good price.

Charlie, after hiring a Disco System for a wedding reception, June 2008.

Many thanks... ...for your excellent service both before, during and after the event.

Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, May 2008.

You always got on with us, always did what we asked you to do, and always delivered excellent sound. I'd have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, and will obviously use you for anything we might do in the future.

Paul Gray (promoter), after the last gig at Painswick Blues, February 2007.
