ON THE DAY
ARRIVAL, SET UP & SOUNDCHECK
Upon arrival we'll liaise with the venue/event manager and load in, set up and sound check as quickly and as discretely as possible. This takes approximately 60 - 120 minutes, 15 - 30 minutes of which are for 'sound check' which involves us playing live, full volume, in order to balance the sound and get the best possible live sound in your specific venue.
We are happy to set up and/or sound check the evening before, or on the day of the event.
FIRST LIVE SET
After our first live set we'll take a break (usually around 30 minutes). During this time we'll leave a play list of carefully chosen music running in the background through our PA system if required. Alternatively, if you have your own DJ then they can be playing during this time.
AFTER SET UP
After we've set up and sound checked we will leave to get ready for the performance and arrive back approx. 1 hour prior to our scheduled start time.
Background music can be played through our PA system while we are on-site, or before we arrive back as long as this has been previously discussed. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide us with a secure changing room / green room (not the toilets) to prepare for the performance and relax during the break.
SECOND LIVE SET & END OF THE EVENING
After our second live performance, if we have finished before midnight, we can provide background music until midnight (unless a later finish has been agreed) if required. Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. We will do this as quickly and discretely as possible - which usually takes around 1 hour. We will endeavor to wait until the least disruptive time to do this, either as your event is winding down or the next morning.
If you have any other questions or would like to discuss things with us in greater detail, please feel free to get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.
