I know, I know. We've had it since the start, 8 years now. We've never really discussed it. I've never been real crazy about the name but they had the name before I joined.Love it, but you guys need a better band logo.
Man, tell me about it. We do pretty good tho. Event band in our little town. $1600 for a normal gig and $2600 for NYE. 5 piece babd. Normally everyone gets $300 and I get an extra $100 for providing lights & sound. NYE, $500 each and I get an extra $100. I get help setting up and tearing down so it works out.Man that is a lot of awesome!!! Definitely a "we play for free, and get paid to set up and take down" kind of band!!!!
Is the stage yours as well?
Centerfill. Usually just some vocals and acoustic guitar in that mix.Nice...why is one monitor pointed away from the band?
I've been debating some small wedges to angle them forward a touch.I'd angle those top cabs a bit to cover some of the dance floor.
1: I own all the sound & light gear. I have a small sound company I run on the side of my day job. I provide sound for a few venues (more often than not I don't use the big light show) everything down to the power cables is mine. The other musicians bring their personal gear. That way there's no confusion as to whose DI, XLR or extension cable is whose. Keeps it easy.Hey buddy, looking really great. What a nice pro set up. I am sure you will have lots of fans dancing their butts off tonight.
I am curious, within you band, who is
1) responsible for the investment in all that equipment
2) Who transports it and sets it all up?
3) Is sound done FOH by an engineer, or are you doing it all "stage side"
4) you have what looks to be awesome monitoring for the band and singers. As a singer, that is great to see. Can you tell me what you are running for stage monitors and amplification, # of monitor mixes and what the FOH speaker/power looks like?
I hope you dont think I am trying to be critic. I am fascinated that in this day and age how a band can carry such a great set up. Good for you!
