I'm in a tribute band and we play semi professionally at festivals, theaters, events, etc. Being in a tribute band, we strive to sound as much like the original artist as possible, so we need to have the right mix, the solos boosted correctly, etc. To that end, we're starting to train a few sound engineers that we can keep on call, to manage sound at our shows. Basically, they just become familiar with the set, then we can call on one of them for any particular show. Most venues are ok with us bringing our own guy. Anyone doing similar, or have a sound guy as a full or paid member of the band?
