HOW MUCH SPACE & TIME DOES THE BAND NEED TO SET UP?

STAGE PLAN

  • Based on a standard vocal jazz quintet with vocals, saxophone, piano, bass & drums, an approximate guide to the amount of space required is 5 meters wide by 3 meters deep.

  • We will require at least 1 electricity point on stage to power up our equipment.

  • We can provide you with a detailed stage plan & technical rider upon request.

ACCESS & STORAGE

We will require:

  • At least two parking spots to park our vehicles as close to the stage as possible.

  • Access to your venue (avoiding stairs) in order to wheel our equipment onto the stage.

  • A secure room for storing equipment & flight cases.

TIME PLAN


You should allow 90 minutes for unloading and setting up our equipment (incl. sound check).

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE ANYTHING ELSE FOR THE MUSICIANS?

CHANGING ROOMS

We will need a secure space where we can leave our bags, change clothes and rest comfortably between performances. It would be appreciated if there is a mirror & electricity supply. If no changing room is available, please let us know in advance.

FOOD & DRINKS

  • For afternoon events: soft drinks, water, tea and coffee.

  • For evening events: hot food and refreshments. If for some reason it is impossible to cater for the band at your venue, please let us know well in advance.
