Thai Rice Club in Maidstone

After completing an upgrade of the sound system in the restaurant of the Thai Rice Club in Maidstone, Old Barn Audio were then invited to renovate the upper restaurant area into a full nightclub and live act performance space. 

A complete system was designed covering multiple uses including DJ nights, karaoke and cabaret style performers. 


A lighting system was installed throughout the space using a mixture of Chauvet, Prolight and ETC products. The Chauvet Slimpar Pro H provides a consist and vibrant wash throughout the space, whilst the Chauvet Intimidator 260 spots provide movement and gobo patterns. The addition of the Prolight fusion 260zr wash fixtures are dual purpose for both lighting the performers and providing movement when used in club mode. A custom ETC EOS magic sheet system has been utilised for simple control of the system and the video wall content. 


Four Martin Audio Blackline X10 speakers were installed to provide a linear coverage across the space. To provide a real club feel for DJ nights, a Martin Audio SX215 sub was installed. Easy control of the system is achieved by using the Powersoft WM Touch wall panel which talks directly to the Powersoft Quatrocanali 2404 DSP amplifier. To enable easy use of the karaoke system we also installed a sound craft UI12 mixing console and two handheld JTS radio microphones. 


A 2.6mm pitch video wall was installed behind the DJ booth to allow media-based performance and DJ content on club nights. A Mac Mini running Qlab is acting as a media server with 160 looping videos pre-programmed by us and ready to use. When placed into karaoke mode, the third-party karaoke machine is displayed on the video wall for performers. 

This project was enormous fun for OBA, and we are happy we were able to supply the customer with a simple to use, effective system that was also very easy to use.
