West London-based Entec Sound & Light supplied audio and lighting equipment and crew for a gig at Wembley Arena shot by the BBC for Brian Pern: 45 Years of Prog and Roll, the third series of Brian Day and Rhys Thomas’s mockumentary The Life of Rock with Brian Pern.

The series follows ageing rockstar Pern (Day, pictured) – frontman of fictional ’70s progressive rock group Thotch – an “affectionate parody” of Genesis’s Peter Gabriel who claims have invented world music and been “the first musician to use plasticine” in a music video.

For the gig, Entec deployed a standard playback rig comprising d&b J8 speakers and J-SUBs for the director and camera crew and foldback system with seven d&b M4 wedges for the actors.

Entec’s James ‘Kedge’ Kerridge installed and operated a Midas Verona console running left and right playback channels and one live vocal mic.

Brian Pern: 45 Years of Prog and Roll will air on BBC Four in January 2016.
