About me

Thanks for visiting my site. I’m Pete Alcock, a Bournemouth-based Live Sound Engineer, and I offer a range of services to local bands, schools, businesses and Churches. These include:

  • live sound mixing
  • Sound equipment and small-scale lighting equipment hire
  • Corporate AV
  • live recording
  • Event photography.

I trained and qualified as an Engineer at the BBC in London in the mid-80s and worked at both the Broadcasting House and Maida Vale Studios. Since then I have worked with a huge variety of clients and musicians including some of the foremost performers on the UK Jazz scene. I maintain a growing inventory of quality equipment, some of which I make available on a dry-hire basis. Details of the equipment is on the Equipment Hire page.

In recent years, I’ve specialised in the Big Band, Swing, Funk and Jazz genres and have have geared up accordingly (you need a lot of mics for a 17-piece big band!). I’m the Technical Manager of Swing Unlimited Big Band and you’ll see many pictures of shows we’ve done together in the photo gallery, as well as at the Swing Unlimited Jazz Club which is now in its fourth year of presenting weekly Wednesday night Jazz in Bournemouth.
