Q. Isn't all disco equipment the same?

In addition, I have lasers and LED lighting. We never cut corners by using inferior unreliable equipment.

Q. What are PAT & PLI?
A. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is an annual safety check of electrical equipment carried out by our electrical engineer. It is not a legal requirement but a large number of hotels and halls now insist that all entertainers must provide evidence prior to starting work. Public Liability Insurance (PLI) is a professional insurance policy specific to the disco. Both PAT & PLI are an indicator that the disco is professional.
