Engaging the Band

Technical requirements of the Big Band.

Here are some things we need from you.

* Outlets: 2 or 3 regular 110-volt outlets.

* Free soft drinks, deli-tray or meal for the band members.

* If outside our sound & band equipment needs to be covered from the rain or hail.

* Staging: We have numerous ways to set up our Big Band to fit smaller rooms and narrow stages. If the stage is small or shallow of depth, sometimes we put the saxophone section on the floor right up to the dance floor. Sometimes if the stage area is narrow but wide, we set up in a V shape or as we call it, the flying wedge. But, if you want to set up a nice size stage for us and space is not a problem, we can fit everyone on a 16′ deep by 20′ wide stage.

Set up: We usually need at least two hours to set up all our sound equipment, risers, lights etc. Finding the band members a separate room to put their coats, horn cases, and more away from your guests etc., is also a great idea. If you are using us in a festival we can set up quickly if you already have the sound equipment and an sound engineer or technical assistant in place.
