Mike @ Phase One and the Phase One team 

Welcome to Phase One Live

 Phase One was established in 1981 and originally opened as record store selling Vinyl Records , yes we are that old. As the business developed we found our selves dealing with lots DJs and performers on weekly basis , so we decided to start selling sound and lighting equipment with great success, this side of the business eventually took over where the trade in vinyl record slowly disappeared. Eventually and sadly we stopped selling records and music, it was just sign of the times and perhaps looking back, for us it was for the best , it was a battle we could not win . 

 For many years now we have just concentrated our efforts in providing sound and lighting equipment with a great service track record. Phase One is a family business and was established by Nigel Stead whom ran the business for over 20 years eventually Nigel retired and his son Mike took the business over in 2004 (under the watchful eye of dad). One of the first things Mike did was modernise and decided the internet was where Phase One needed to be. So we launched www.djanddiscostuff.com primarly aim at the DJ market . Well this was a great success and Mike went on to win a North East business award in 2007 . The company has gone from strength to strength and the shop moved across town to a new Showroom in 2010 and boasts the largest range of sound and lighting equipment in the North East .
