You’ve made it this far! Congratulations, that means you’re actually reading this, probably because you – like us – value a good goddamn show. Here’s a few additional things that we can do to make that happen:
1) Importante: We travel with a few microphones, a select assortment of cables, and 2 back-up mic stands. At the very minimum, a PA w/ 2 FOH & 2 monitor speakers + 2 additional mic stands & adequate XLR cabling are required for the show to be successful. But this is not entirely preferable. 2) A full club/festival set up is preferred: 6+ FOH speakers and 6 monitors w/ separate mixes - each manned by a separate soundman + backlined bass & guitar cabs, full access to instrument mics, stands, DI’s, cables, etc. Somewhere in between 1) and 2) there exists a medium that can work for both the venue and the artist.* * If your venue meets the specifications of 2) there will be no problem – please skip the other asterisked points and move ahead to 3), 4) and 5) * If your venue falls somewhere in between 1) and 2) please contact our Virginia at: (865) 300-2107 or email@example.com to let her know what to expect * If your venue cannot provide the minimum requirements of 1) and you are reading this then there has probably been a lapse of communication somewhere along the way – please contact our agent Virginia at the above phone # or email to talk about this
3) Please do not electrocute the musicians – this sounds like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at what we've come across in this here industry of ours… 4) Please make sure that the location the artist will be playing in is structurally sound and fireproof – heavy shit, including speakers and steel stage frames, have fallen on top of artists before at outdoor festivals due to heavy winds (crushing them fatally) and let’s not forget that awful club fire that killed 100 people in Rhode Island… 5) Please do not fry the artist’s ears. This is the most important of all. 99% of the time feedback can be prevented with good engineering knowledge. Don’t squash or overload your system. Keep monitor mixes at a decent level. And remember Pete Townshend – please don’t give us tinnitus. Our ears are our bread and butter.
