"We were delighted by the team's care and attention to detail. They really got it right and helped us over our fear of head mics. Keeping the sound at the perfect level throughout our presentations was so important to us and they mastered that. We look forward to using them again for future events."

"We hired MOORE PA HIRE for the FDNY PIPES AND DRUMS 50th anniversary held at Citifield this past September. We had our hands full planning a party for 1000 people, but from the minute we meet Cathal Moore we knew that one thing we were not going to have to worry about would be the sound, lighting, stage, and overall appearance of the venue. He is a professional and a perfectionist. His work is amazing and his staff is great. He made our party into a great event. Thank you."
FDNY Pipes and Drums
"Thank you very much for being the consummate professional in staging and managing the Gala - you and your team did a phenomenal job! We truly appreciate this, given the fact that three weeks before the event, we informed you that we didn't have a budget for sound, light and video, and you subsequently accepted another job. Upon second thought, with only two days before the event and no time to spare, you came to our rescue by covering your other job and giving us one thousand percent of your effort. This was much more than anyone could have asked for or expected, and it made all the difference for the evening. Without your expertise, the venue would not have been as vibrant or as professionally staged and equipped as it needed to be, our entertainers would not have been showcased appropriately, and our guests would have left with less than what we intended to give them."

"Cathal, what can I say but another GREAT job! Thanks for coming through on such short notice and accommodating the NY Arm Wrestling's every need. Without you, the show would not have been nearly as successful. And, thanks for going the extra mile assisting us in transporting and storing some of our equipment. You truly know the meaning of CUSTOMER SERVICE! Happy Holidays."

"I want to thank you for another job well done at The Forest Hills Festival of the Arts held on June 14th. It is amazing how you and your staff can accommodate all the different shows we put on all day long at the event. It was outstanding that the 18 piece Jazz Big Band (New York's Finest jazz Ensemble) and the following band, Gregorio Uribe Colombian Big Band were able to start on time considering the different stage plots and necessary sound checks that needed to be done.
It is a big relief knowing that I can count on you and your crew to provide outstanding staging and sound at my events. I look forward to working with you at the three Jazz Thursdays In August Concert series this summer. "

"As always, Cathal Moore and his team at Moore PA Hire provides oustanding and creative sound systems, and the most professional service for our special events. As a small non-profit association, we need a resourceful and accomodating sound professional to help us carry out our successful fund-raisers. And Cathal Moore is the first and only professional I turn to for sound systems when holding events. I highly recommend Moore PA Hire sound professionals as a reliable and truly effective part of any special event."

"I would like to thank you and your team for an amazing job. Planning a fashion show from the other side of the country is not an easy task. Your recommendations and suggestions of our needs were spot on. You staff is professional, easy to work with and wonderful problem solvers. You took the pressure off and it was better than I could have hoped for. I'm looking forward to my next show and you will be my first phone call. Thanks again for you professionalism and gentle manner. "
"I wanted to send a note saying thanks SO much for your amazing work yesterday. We are all completely impressed and could not have done this (obviously) without you and your hardworking team. Everyone was very professional and a pleasure to work with, and I will definitely be in touch the next time I have any production needs!"
"Dating back to the first season of the Wordless Music series, Cathal Moore and Moore PA Hire have been an invaluable part of the concert series' ongoing success. In venues large and small -- museums, churches, and concert halls alike -- Cathal and his team have proven to be infinitely patient and resourceful in helping us to realize our (occasionally over-ambitious) concert programming dreams. I wholeheartedly recommend Cathal and Moore PA Hire for anyone's concert- and event-production needs."
Founder, Wordless Music
You are a true professional. I want to thank you for all of your help.
I would like to say that your creative vision transformed the space at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle into a magical space for the evening.
I got comments like "the place looks great. This is a lot of fun. It feels like a nightclub" from many of the guests during the reception.
Talk about full service, you went many steps beyond including loa during the night to work out the kinks with our video production and in the end stage manage the video and awards presentation.
I would highly recommend your services again and hope to engage you in our next local event."
Carl Barnes, Director of Development
National Pastoral Life Center
"Cathal Moore and his excellent, curteous staff provided top quality gear that worked perfectly, and their recommendations on what speakers to use and their configuration for the particular venue we were in was spot on. With their prompt and top-notch service I was able to provide a beautifully intimate concert by Paul Brady and Sarah Siskind, arguably two of the most demanding and talented artists today."
Erick Jaskowiak, FOH Engineer
"have been organizing a fundraiser for the past 8 years. This past February, I was forced to change my venue due to renovations. I was concerned as to how a new space would work for my event, until Cathal Moore and his company, Moore P.A. Hire,Inc. were recommended to me by the venue. When we met at the venue, he gave me some great ideas and listened to every suggestion I had. I wound up renting everything from him. From sound to lighting to video, Moore P.A. Hire made the room come alive, while I took all the credit for a great event. A thank you to Moore P.A. Hire for an outstanding job, and a personal thank you to Cathal for all the help. I will certainly refer you to everyone I know and I won't so much as plan a kid's birthday without calling you first!"

"Working with Moore PA Hire was a great and professional experience
from beginning to end. They met each and every need requested through
our rider and went over and above the call of duty. From helping us
execute our video and lighting programming to providing a great sound
canvas for our FOH tech to work with - they were friendly, hardworking

"Cathal Moore and Moore P.A. Hire delivered an excellent audio and lighting systems for Cabaret [Tribunale], a Danish-American interdisciplinary art
project at Judson Memorial Church, NY. Moore coming in with great gear
with very short notice is in itself worth applauding. What we unexpectedly
moreover received was superb help and advice both setting up and during
the performances, extraordinary openness, friendliness and warmth from the
people from the company, cooperation and flexibility. We are very grateful
and would love to recommend this fine company and the people behind it to
all the world!

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for a
superb job on Mon. You guys were incredible right from the start and
one of the friendliest and most flexible companies I have worked with.
I also noticed you pitching in to help build the backdrop which was
fantastic of you.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and the next time we're in NY,
I'll make sure to give you a call.

"IT is no secret that all production work is as dramatic behind the scenes as what it supports before the audience. Emotions prevail when time runs short, money is burning, and the show must go on. It is in this specific context that the good people of Moore PA Hire earn my highest praise. I recently hired this intrepid crew to trick out and staff a non-standard venue for a huge film presentation. I had not known that running an audio-visual gig could be a humanitarian venture, but Cathal Moore, (an Irish challenge to the eastern ascendency of the Buddha) exhibited such grace under pressure, and kept his wits so firmly about him--albeit submerged under a sheen of sweat--that I actually wanted to weep at moments. I am not exageratting. Not only did he pull together a great, cost-conscious team, but he managed personally radiate an oasis of calm within a desert of chaos. And for that, he earns my highest praise, not merely as a great technical leader and organizer, but a human being."

"Thank you again for the excellent sound work. You truly added such an important element to our production and people are raving about the sound. I will be sure to use you again and refer you to many of my colleagues."

"Our elementary school has done Broadway plays for each of the last 12 years. This is the FIRST time I've ever had such glowing reviews from our audience for the sound and lighting company! Moore P.A. Hire did everything they promised and anticipated conditions we hadn't even thought of! Thanks again, guys. You gave us a very professional touch."

"MoorePa is my first choice for lighting/stages/ and pa. They have great gear and excellent crews. We had a tight schedule for a recent commercial shoot for ESPN, MoorePA was able to set-up and breakdown within our schedule and the gear worked great. No problems, no worries at all, the production went smooth. Thanks again to MoorePA."
"Once again, for the sixth consecutive year, you and the "A" team at Moore P.A. Hire have totally 'kicked asre'! It seems each year, 'Broadway in Bryant Park' brings new challenges...but despite the challenge, you rise to the occasion and then some. I am honored and proud to call you my partner in this venture - and collectively you make all of us here at 106.7 LITE fm look (and sound) great."

""When I first started the Manhattan Short Film Festival in 1998, and looking back, the one area when I really got screwed on was sound. If you have no previous experience with staging and sound and you are about to stage an event, no matter how big or how small...watch out, as you are about to get screwed somewhere. If you choose Moore PA hire, at least you can be assured the one area you will not get screwed over is in the sound""

"Just dropping you a quick note of thanks for the great job and for all the assistance and support you provided during the World Harmony Run opening ceremony. Working with your company was a pleasure and all of the staging and back drop equipment you provided was excellent. In addition, we really appreciated the timely and professional manner of your operation and the extra effort and advice you gave while setting up the back drop to make sure that everything looked great. You really went the extra mile. The equipment you provided as well as the services rendered were excellent and were greatly appreciated. Thanks again and we will continue to use your services in the future. "

"With regards to an event as large and with as many components as the ING New York City Marathon, it is comforting to know that with Moore P.A. Hire we didn't have to worry about our sound set-up. They were easy to work with from the beginning, very accomodating throughout the entire planning process, and turned in a rock solid performance during the event. We appreciated their efficiency, professionalism and their contribution to making the ING New York City Marathon a great success! We look forward to working with them again in the future."

"From the Rainbow Room to High School auditoriums - I feel comfortable as a musical director knowing that Moore P.A. Hire is supplying my audio. Cathal always makes sure I sound good and I refer him for every job because of his competitive rates and professionalism. Cathal Moore is 2nd to none."
" From Our Fashion Show, to the concert featuring "Ray Chew and The Crew", to our multiple panels including presenters such as Reverend Al Sharpton and Steve Harvey, to our Gospel concert, all components of this two day event held in the Jacob Javits Center, flowed together seamlessly thanks to the efforts of both the Moore P.A. Hire sound and lighting crew and the Javits Center crew."

"As the Producer of the Village Voice Obie Awards, the Off and Off-Off Broadway Theater Awards, for twelve years, I have had the great pleasure to work with Cathal Moore many times. The Obies are a one-day event with a very small window of time to set-up and get ready for a sound check. I always depended upon Cathal to move things along so that we could be ready to rehearse our entertainment acts for the evening. Each and every time Cathal kept a clear head and kept things running smoothly. When problems arose, he solved them quickly and efficiently so that I could focus on other things. He has an easy manner with celebrities and performers from all professions, singers, musicians, actors and divas alike! Cathal was always upbeat and ready for a challenge. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone."

"After searching throughout New York for a company to provide our staging, lighting, sound and technical needs we decided to go with Moore P.A. Hire. We could not have been happier with that decision. Moore P.A. Hire handled everything seamlessly and went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. They took the burden of coordination off of our hands which freed us up to focus on the rest of the event planning process. They worked directly with all of the bands, handled all of the stage and technical management kept our schedule running on time and provide a completely first class experience for our guests. All of this was handled with complete professionalism, superior customer service and within our allocated budget. I will certainly be calling them again for all of our future festivals and highly recommend them to any event planner looking staging, lighting and sound."
