general crew

The core of our service is to provide crew that assist with the set up and de-rig of any event, no matter how big or small. The crew continuously enjoy working with clients to help set up staging, set, rigging, AV, props and of course the loading and unloading of trucks. Our in- house, on going training and a thorough inductions, ensure Silverback crew arrive on site with a fantatic understanding of what is expected from them and a wealth of knowledge that they bring to every shift.

plant machinery crew

There are many occasions where crew alone will not suffice and specialist machinery and skilled crew are needed. At Silverback we have large number of experienced crew that are certified to operate plant machinery such as counter balance forklifts, telehandlers, scissor lifts and cherrypickers. Due to our in house system, processes and software you can be sure that should you need to book a specialst oporater, our crew member will turn up with a valid license and capability.

chippie crew

Possibly one of the most common skills asked for by clients is a crew member that can be booked as a “chippie”. Every Silverback region has a collection of crew that are able to assist in the building of set, wrapping set and putting together bespoke structures. So if you need a crew member that can arrive on site with confidence and tools to help set-up or derig your corporate set, exhibition stand or anything else please get in touch.

followspot crew

When booking a crew member to perform the task of a followspot operative you need to have trust that they have the experience and ability to perform that task faultlessly. Knowing that our crew have followspotted for countless award ceremonies, arena filling comedians, rock bands, SKY Sports and live TV should allow you to book with confidence. Our followspotters know what is expected of them from conduct, attire and ability.

I am so pleased to have had your guys on site today. They were very professional, and no job was too big or too small. They only stopped occasionally when I asked them to, as I felt they must need a break/drink but if I didn’t ask, I think they would have just carried on…… They were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful.”
