To all our Glaskas fans, boy, do we have news for you. Glaskas is coming to George on the 4th of August to perform live in the Arts Theatre! For those of you who don’t know, Glaskas started out in ’n small town in the Eastern Cape.

In 2006, they release their first album and start touring all over South Africa. Deon Meiring, the lead singer, songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player, as well as Lolke-Louis Claassen, the drummer, backing vocals and Francois Kleynhans on bass guitar and backing vocals. Crowds have always been singing along with hits like Verloor Myself, Ek wil jou hê, Meneer en Golflengte Verkeerdom.

The last few years the guys haven’t been focusing exclusively on Glaskas, but they were still making music together although less often for a while. Fans will be glad to hear that Glaskas will be touring again in August 2019. So, you’ll be able to see them on stage again soon.

SND Productions will be doing the set-up in George and they will perform their hearts out as they always do. Be sure not to miss out on this opportunity by buying yourself and your crew tickets to the show.

On a side note, SND Productions is a massive fan of Glaskas and loves collaborating with artists of their caliber in an effort to bring out the highest quality sound for the special event.

In our very own SND blog we have decided to make it our mission to get you, the reader, to see what it’s like working on the inside with the crew of SND. It is not common practice for business to allow clients to peek into the private side of the company, but we are not a common practice, we are SND Productions. With that said, in this post we have put the spotlight on the man behind the microphone, thanking everyone for their collaborative efforts, our team leader & master of ceremonies, Ruan Venter.

We asked Ruan what his favourite part of his job was as team leader and overseer of SND Productions to which he said that his all-time favourite is getting to work with the people he truly loves as well as serving a fun purpose with his passion for music. The part Ruan finds most difficult is putting on the “leader hat” and having to be the one to enforce the correct sort of work ethic and attitude into the crew that will make them most efficient as well as figuring out which strategy will work best.

A hidden challenge that one might not know about unless working in a similar setting is that of keeping a consistently excellent service going in the Garden Route as it isn’t always the most forgiving clientele in the country. Ruan says that to remain on-top of quality, one must wake up with the mindset of achieving big everyday, even on the days you feel like laying in bed.

Secret perks of the job are as you could have guessed, meeting the amazing artists SND Productions brings in on a monthly basis, but the biggest being the reward of hearing that a customer is more than satisfied with the service you provided them with.

Ruan reports that if he never got into this particular line of work he has no idea what he would’ve done instead, but suspects that it would involve being a professional athlete. He says that it isn’t a dream that is out of the window and that he might still pursue it one day.

Ruan, we owe you a great debt and carry a quality of respect that only a leader could muster in men. In conclusion, you realised that sometimes you have to run before you can walk and we love that if we were to reduce you to your core, that would be your essence.

This might just be our final post on life on the greener side of the fence. We dedicate this mini series to what it’s like when working for SND Productions. We’ve explored our many facets of the business from events management through to shop keeping, but in this particular post we wanted to take a look at what it’s like to be a rental manager in SND Productions.

We asked dear Sven what his favorite part of the job was to which he said that, even though he isn’t always directly involved, he loves the opportunity to see all the live shows & deal with the clients that rent equipment from SND Productions. Sven, if you’re reading this, if ever there was a right answer, it would look like this one!

The hardest part of the job for Sven is arguing with his fellow employees, he says he dislikes confrontation between people with whom you work in such a tight approximation with on a daily basis. He might look the part of a hardened veteran, but he’s an old softy.

The most challenging part of the job that you might not know of when working as a rental manager is working with all the different types of clients and maintaining those relationships so that business can always be conducted smoothly. It is a lot more work that you would think and it is like doing laundry or washing dishes in the sense that it never ends, it’s always a maintenance of in and out.

The secret perks of the job according to Sven is that of being paid to watch amazing shows and of course, meeting the talent that makes the show come to life. It’s not always a guarantee, but when it happens, it’s magical.

Sven says that in another life he would have been an accountant and that his best memory made working for SND was when they had to do engineering work for 4 weeks straight. On a scale between 1-5 he is a strong 4 on recommending Windows 10 to a friend and on a scale of 1-1000 we love Sven 3000.

We are back with another post on what it’s like to work on our side of the counter. We realised that our clients might come and go while we stay blissfully unaware of their curiosity as to what it’s like working in the industry of sound & events, which is why we’ve decided to have a little “show & tell” in the form of our blog posts.

Without further adieu, fresh off the streets of George we have Sean Venter, the newest SND crew member filling the big role of “events assistant”. We asked Sean what part of the job he loves the most to which he responded that the process of setting up and striking down stages was the most enjoyable and the most difficult being the act of running the stage.

We asked young Sean what some of the challenges are that people generally won’t know about unless you work in sound set-up & events. He simply said that the bigger the event, the more damage there is done by having something not operating flawlessly and that the hardest unforeseen part of the job is not getting everything operating 100 percent, but keeping it operational throughout the entire event. To be so young yet so wise in the ways of the world.

Some of the perks of working on the grinding side of SND Productions according to Sean is meeting the fabulous and flamboyant artists that they serve. He says that the band he enjoyed meeting most was South Africa’s very own Prime Circle when it comes to the most memorable moment on the job thus far.

We asked Sean for any closing remarks to which he said, “In this life I am an Events Assistant, in another I would have been a veterinarian and on a scale of 1-5 on how likely I am to recommend Windows 10 to a friend, it would have to be a solid 3”.

Welcome to the crew Sean, we will be watching your career with great interest over the next few years!

It was a sunny Thursday afternoon here in Hibernia street when we got the idea to write blog posts dedicated to what it’s like working on the inside of SND. We realised that many of our clients only get to see the end result of what we do, but know very little about the process of getting to where the end result is the desired one. We asked ourselves who would know the process best and the answer was an obvious, SP Smit.

SP SMit is our very own, in-house events manager. If ever there is a man of the hour, it’s SP. We asked him what part of the job he enjoys the most to which he gave the best reply of loving when a plan comes together, what a guy.

Although he feels strongly about the secret perks of the job which is sightseeing & general traveling, the challenging part of the job he says is the same answer as it is for the question of what you wouldn’t know about the job unless you were in the industry already. The answer is straight and simple. It is preparing for the unforeseeable.

When asked what he would have liked to do if he wasn’t forming part of the SND crew, he said he had no idea. All he knows for a fact is that on a scale of 1-5, he is a hard 5 on recommending Windows 10 to a friend.

SP Smit, the crew wouldn’t be the same without you!
