HOW IT WORKS
Once arrived at the location, we will liaise with the event manager or person in charge to unload and set up our gear on stage. It's important for us to have a parking site close to the venue to be able to transport our instruments and PA system comfortably and without issues.
Our set up and soundcheck usually take 90 minutes to complete. Soundcheck is essential for us to be able to have the best sound quality during the performance. If setting up disrupts the schedule of the event, we're happy to arrange an earlier arrival at an additional cost.
AFTER SET UP
Once everything is ready for the performance, we will take a short break to go change. Ideally, the band requires a room to change in, store our instrument cases and bags, and stay in during our breaks.
Before the performance or during the first break are the perfect moments for the band to have their hot meal, which is included in all our contracts. In case this is not possible, we're happy to arrange a suitable time with the event manager or person in charge.
After finishing our first set, we will play music from our laptop to keep the party going.
In the meantime, the band will go to the band's room to freshen up and take a short break before our second set.
If you wish to make requests to the DJ, we can upgrade the DJ setup for an additional cost.
Once the live performance is over, we will keep playing party music from our speakers until 11pm, unless arranged differently.
END OF THE NIGHT
After the band has changed from their performance clothing, we will start packing all our gear. This will happen shortly after the end of the performance, while the laptop music is still on.
We will have to make various trips from the stage to our vehicles to load our gear in. If this is too disruptive for the event, please do let us know in advance and we will wait until there's a suitable time for us to do so. Usually the band doesn't take more than one hour to unpack, but this also depends on the size of the band.
