When we provide the PA, the venue must provide the following.
The theatre and stage must be available for installation and soundcheck at least 4 hours before the start of the concert, and must remain available for at least 2 hours after the end of the concert.
Stage lights must create a simple, static but pleasing, moody atmosphere. Dynamic lighting is preferred unless overdone. There must be a base-level light so we can see our instruments. Lights must be managed by a technician of the venue/organisation.
We need easy access to the stage for loading and unloading of equipment and instruments; we must be able to park 2 cars within 10m of the stage entrance during the unloading and loading. The cars can be moved in between if really needed, but we’d rather not.
Free parking space for at least 4 cars must be available near the venue, not further than 5 minutes walking distance.
We need at least 45 minutes of soundcheck, 60 to 90 minutes would be preferable (including set-up).
The following scheme sketches the usual set-up.
