Meet the Team
Andy has over 20 years experience working within the entertainment industry. He spent over 15 years travelling the UK as a DJ and spent 4 years as a resident DJ for Chicago Rock Cafe!! Andy has worked heavily in the concert and theatre sector being able to provide power, staging, audio and lighting for indoor and outdoor events catering for up to 40,000 people. Andy is able to provide sound, lighting, video, CCTV, communications, alarms and network installations. Andy works to a high standard, completing all works to an excellent standard and to clients specifications. Andy has been fortunate enough to work with many clients and venues over the years including (but not limited to), Scouting for Girls, Jason Manford, Club KO, Haverhill Arts centre, Quay Theatre Sudbury, Halstead Empire Theatre, Sugar Hut Group and 3D Entertainments. Andy is resident engineer for That Eighties Band providing all their lighting, PA and crew requirements.
Bex has been in the entertainment industry since 2017. She started working with Andy as part of the crew helping with load in and load outs. She quickly developed a passion for the job and discovered a love for lighting design and engineering. Bex has worked alongside Andy and has had the opportunity to work on many different sized events from small private functions to 4000 people festivals. She has had the privilege of working with people such as Scouting for girls and Paul Sinah (The Chase) as well as having experience within theatres and with live music environments. Bex will probably be the person that you speak to when you contact us at Excalibur.
Sally has been with us since 2019 and is a valued member of the team! Sally works within the warehouse preparing kit for jobs, deprepping kit after jobs and everything in between. Sally comes out to events with us and she is a good rigger and helps move anything and everything that is needed (and some things that aren't)! Sally works closely with That Eighties Band as their photographer and so you can usually find her dancing and snapping her camera at the front. Sally is a great worker and is always ready to muck in and get the job done.
James is one of our youngest members of the Excalibur family but his experience is not to be easily dismissed!! James has worked within the industry for many years and he has developed a lot of knowledge, understanding and experience. James is a huge asset to the team and you will find him equally comfortable either on or off the stage as we don't think there are many instruments he can't play!!
Kev has been with us for many years. He has over 30 years experience within the entertainment industry. He is a great team member who is equally comfortable behind the mixing desk at front of house, as he is as our stage manager. Kev is quick with a joke or an XLR and is a well trusted member of the Excalibur team.
Jack is happy at either end of a multi core. He is a great guitarist in his own band and is a fantastic, helpful and competent member of the team. Jack is more than capable of rigging a stage with audio and lighting as well as engineering a show! He never lets us down and always has a smile on his face - just not when posing for photo shoots!!
Simon is one of our freelance sound engineers who is recognised internationally as a professional sound engineer with over two decades in the sound industry. Simon is happy both in the studio and the live environment as well as being a freelance record producer, pro audio specialist/consultant, pro audio journalist and pro audio trainer. Simon is a very knowledgeable and valued member of the team.
Cait is our newest and youngest member of the crew. At just 16 years old, she is limited to certain types of jobs due to age restrictions but that does not stop her enthusiasm for the work she does do. She has been involved with theatre productions, family fun days, mini 2 day festivals and more. She is currently studying BTEC Production at school and has dreams of working in the West End!! She is great on jobs and isn't afraid to get stuck in building stages, lifting PA, hanging lights or operating desks. A real gem and all round hard worker who will go far in this industry!!
Matt has joined the Excalibur team after joining us on a few adventures over the past 12 months. He has a background in electrical installations and DJ work and is an experienced audio engineer. Matt seems to be a fountain of knowledge and is enthusiastic within the industry and is always wanting to learn more. We are really happy he has decided to join us on more events and we are looking forward to learning from him and he from us.
Jack has been working with us for more years then we all care to admit to. Jack is an accomplished sound, monitor and lighting engineer, programmer and rigger. He's always the one to bring a smile to your face with his quick wit and hilarious comebacks. Jack is great at putting forward ideas for stage design and is more that happy to take on projects and manage them himself. Jack has worked with many bands over the years both independently from us and along side us. He is an absolute asset to our team and we love having him with us.
