8) Audio
F.O.H. Console:

The bands audio


team are not sure of
all the inputs yet
and so are giving
the promoter a
rough idea.

Input list is still be finalised. We are currently taking approximately 32 - 35 inputs from stage
plus shout/comms as applicable.

WE NEED AT LEAST 18 DI BOXES- WE HAVE OUR OWN TO LOOMS

We have show files for Avid and Soundcraft Vi consoles. Our FOH engineer does not like
Behringer or Yamaha digital consoles please advise if you are supplying this type of
console. We may decide to rent in an alternative console and I will talk to you about costs for
this.
We supply the string microphones (probably DPA 4099).
Analogue is always good Midas being the favourite. Please see the list of effects and
dynamics we would like if you are supplying an analogue console:
F.O.H. outboard for analogue consoles:

1 x Klark Teknik DN370, DN360 or BSS or XTA stereo 31 band graphic EQ

6 x noise gates - Drawmer DS201 if possible.

2 x effects units capable of producing reverb

2 x effects units capable of producing delay/echo

Input list is still be finalized. We are currently taking approximately 32 - 35 inputs from stage

9) Lighting brief
WE DO NOT HAVE A LIGHTING PERSON!

Some helpful
information. The
TM can advise the
house lighting
person on the day.

Farry Kisher would like a colorful, deep lighting look with plenty of slow movement. The

music is mid-tempo, beats-based, so fast strobes and movement are not applicable. Hazing
is fine. Holly, our singer, is not on stage for all of the songs and therefore needs to be
highlighted when she is.

We will also have visual files (.avi and MP4 ) for projection/LED backdrop if applicable.

Simple and clear.
You would add
input list channel
numbers in the
correct positions
when you have
them.

STAGE PLAN

A reminder that we
don't have exact
input list yet.

10) Club/theatre stage and riser requirements


Please have a look at the stage plan. We do not require the usual drum rider upstage centre.
Please strike any existing drum riser if at all possible. We dont need risers for the
electronics and keyboards.

Helps promoter plan the


schedule

Our set up takes up the whole stage and we will strike everything, as far as possible, after
sound check in order to make way for other acts. We ideally need at least 20 minutes to
change over for our own, headline, shows.
We will need 4 off chairs with backs and 4 off lit music stands if your show includes the string
section. I will discuss hire and costs with you during the advance.

Festivals stage and riser requirements

Very important
information.

We have two (2) keyboard/electronics set-ups that ideally need to be pre-built before
changeover. We may have a 4-piece string section for your show. We therefore require:
2 off 8 x 8 x1 rolling risers for keys/electronics
1 off 12 x 4 x 2 rolling riser (made from 2 off 6 x 4) for the string section

We ideally need power to the keys/electronics risers in the offstage/build area.

We will need 4 off chairs with backs and 4 off lit music stands if your show included the
string section. I will discuss hire and costs with you during the advance.
