Testimonials


Ray Lewis

I met Stuart at the Wear it for Autism event in Knightsbridge where I was asked to perform for the charity. Stuart was brilliant and I would recommend him anytime.

Thomas Puttock

Thomas has Autism and was in Autism's got talent 2015. We met Stuart at Wear it For Autism when Thomas performed Music of The Night from Phantom of The Opera. Thomas needed care with the sound equipment because he was wearing a mask. Stuart explained everything really well to Thomas and made the whole experience easy for him. What a lovely chap!

Andi Osho

I've worked with Stuart Howitt on a number of projects and am I always struck by the professionalism, expertise and diligence demonstrated by Stuart and his team. I know the show is in safe hands when I see Stuart Howitt Event Services attached to the production.

Anna Kennedy

Stuart Howitt and his team created a fabulous catwalk for our very first Charity Fashion Show 'Wear it for Autism' in Soho London. Stuart listened carefully to our ideas and then set about creating a catwalk to meet our needs. This was not an easy task since some of our models have a diagnosis of Autism. Therefore lighting, sound and spacing were key due to our models sensory difficulties. In the lead up to the event we were in regular contact, which ensured that everything was perfect on the night and our event was a fantastic success!

Billy Jenkins

Blackheath Halls has two rooms, both built for Victorian classical concerts. They are not easy rooms to master acoustically, especially when using amplification. Which makes it essential that Stuart is in control of the sound. It was the one condition that I accepted my last booking there. Stuart had to do the sound. Full stop. He becomes part of the band, another musician. Soundchecks are brilliantly executed as he works to the tempo of those preparing on stage. Be it big band or quintet, our onstage sound has been perfect as too reports from the paying public.

Richard Heason Blackheath Halls

Stuart Howitt provided sound engineering services at Blackheath Halls for nearly 6 years. Blackheath Halls promotes a very varied range of programming including classical, jazz, world, folk, rock and pop and club nights. His professional approach and keen ear made him a great asset to the venue and a pleasure for artists to work with.

Bob Brozman

Having worked several times with Stuart at Blackheath Halls in London, I can only say that it was hardly definable as "work" because he is so knowledgeable about his craft and so quick and easy to communicate with, more like fun than work! I actually look forward to doing soundchecks with Stuart, because of his vast experience with a variety of professional instruments, and because his accommodating attitude and work philosophy is the best in the business.

Christine Collister

I've played at Blackheath Halls on many occasions over the years and always feel safe in the hands of Stuart's wonderful sound engineering. It's a joy to work with someone who has such an intuitive approach to his work and an obvious love of people and their music. It makes for a much more relaxed performance which is all a performer wants! Thanks Stuart - I look forward to the next one!

Mr & Mrs Clay

We hired Stuart Howitt Event Services for our anniversary party. We wanted a DJ and some lighting effects. But Wow! What we got was an amazing transformation, a creation of flames, amazing lighting and smoke the room was unrecognisable our party was now an event. He spoke to the venue and updated us on a regular basis on the run up to the day. On the day he just took charge he co-ordinated with both of our performers setting them up along with our photographer and ensuring everything ran smoothly for us. Stuart Howitt Event Services and the team went above and beyond our expectations to make my party an event to remember. Thank you guys!

DV8

Stuart and his team provide sound and lighting services for auditions and showcases run by DV8 Training at Stratford Circus. As you can imagine, with excited young people charging around and loads of up and coming artists auditioning and performing, there are plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong. Stuart always manages to keep his cool, handle the sound and lighting really well and coax great performances from the raw talent up on stage. DV8 feel like we are in safe hands at all times when Stuart and his crew are at the controls.

Jah Wobble

I did a show with a very large ensemble at Stratford Circus. It really was a very complicated set up. Stuart was on the case from start to finish, totally professional. Everything went smoothly from preproduction right the way through to the load out

Jah Wobble - Bass player, songwriter

Jaime Balbontin

I have had Stuart Howitt working for me on my clubs for sound with bands and DJs I have found him to be absolutely professional and a joy to work with. I would recommend Stuart to anyone whom needed an engineer and also a decent person to know.

Jaime Balbontin - Singer, Songwriter and Promoter

Ryan Wiggins

We first met Stuart and his team in 2014 when Ryan was performing at the Millennium Hotel, London. Ryan was only 13 but they treated him with the upmost respect and cared for his every need (making him feel every inch the star). They had banter and laughs from the minute they met, all the while professionalism being of upmost importance. The set they created was amazing, the colours, the sound, everything was spot on.
Attending the event again in 2015, we were so pleased that they had been asked back to recreate the set. 
We now regard Stuart and his team as friends and would thoroughly recommend anyone with an event of any kind to try these guys out. I would say anything is possible when you have Stuart Howitt and his team about!!!

Katie Brayben

When I played recently at the Cat's whiskers Club, it was my first outing with my band as I am usually a solo artist. Stuart made us feel welcome, valued and secure. The sound was fantastic both on stage and out front. We couldn't have wished for a better debut thanks to Stuart.

Katie Brayben - Singer, Songwriter

James Biddulp

I was highly impressed with the support given to us on our performance day. Working in such a short space of time and with 60 young performers is a challenging prospect, but I felt that the two technicians were understanding and respectful of the specific needs of our primary school production team. Their swift support allowed us to concentrate on the artistic aspects of the production. I was also confident in your advice pre-performance regarding equipment and was very grateful that you made concessions because of our budget restrictions. I hope that we can work together in the future.

James Biddulph - Ranelagh School

Newham

Thank you Stuart. It's really helpful, when there are so many aspects of an event to consider, to have Stuart Howitt Event Services staying cool, staying in contact, and often providing extra bits of equipment and support at very late stages without a ruffle of feathers. I look forward to working with you again.

Jane Wheeler, Music Adviser Learning and Schools, C&YPS - LB Newham

Randolph Matthews

Stuart Howitt Event Services were outstanding in making my Voice Solo sound work in the space. Thanks for going beyond the call of duty to provide great equipment at reasonable cost. Many thanks

So Long Angel

So Long Angel are always delighted to work with Stuart. He has a very calm, professional approach to sound checking and to monitoring sound. On Cat's Whiskers nights he works with three acts, usually with varying degrees of experience and expectation, and he always delivers excellent sound. while putting performers at their ease. Stuart is equally at home at Blackheath Halls in the large room with its acoustics which are notoriously difficult for anything other than acoustic music, and in the intimate small hall. Stuart has terrific ears, great sensitivity and a wealth of technical knowledge. He's simply the best.

So Long Angel - Urban Blues Band

The Cat's Whiskers

Stuart ran the live sound at Cats Whiskers gigs and always got a really crisp, well-balanced sound whatever the line up on stage, whether it's a solo singer -songwriter or a ten piece band with drums, woodwind and strings. He's a true pro and great to work with too - he makes the artist feel at home and he never loses his cool!

Andy Chapman - Promoter & Musician The Cat's Whiskers

University of East London

Stuart and his team provide excellent technical support and guidance to the performing arts students at UEL and their very diverse range of performance work. Stuart and his team are not only first class professionals but also go out of their way to give students the technical knowledge and support to realise their artistic ideas, often in very limited time. The attitude of Stuart and his team is always 'how can we make it happen' and they consistently go the extra mile to achieve the best results. The opportunity for performing arts students to work so closely with such a constructive, professional and supportive technical team is an invaluable learning opportunity, a great insight into best professional practice, and the chance to create work with first-rate production values.
