Thank you for considering Gallimaufry for your event.  Below are details on our preferred setup, method of pay, and other details.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.


Gallimaufry is pronounced  /ˌgaləˈmôfrē/ (“gal-uh-MAH-free” if dictionary IPA isn’t your thing).

If your dance or venue records or photographs the events please send us copies when possible.  


When possible please split the pay equally among band members by individual check.  If only one check is being written, pay to the order of Donal Sheets.  


We prefer to handle our own sales of CD’s and any other merchandise. If you will be staffing a merchandise table at your event, please let us know ahead of time. We expect to be able to sell our merchandise at breaks and before/after the event, and anything your event organizers can do to promote that is greatly appreciated.

Housing and Dining
If you are providing us with housing or dining, thank you very much! The band has no allergies, but please keep in mind that we do have one vegetarian. We are comfortable sharing large beds, and are generally quite flexible with sleeping arrangements.

Sound Amplification
Gallimaufry is a large band, and on-stage volume levels are often quite high due in part to the drums. As such, we rely on a good monitor mix to play well, and request that sound technicians running monitors are attentive and willing to make adjustments as needed.  We will provide our own microphones for everything
except drum mics, and you will receive the following inputs. All inputs are balanced XLR; phantom power is needed for some. We will need 6 adjustable boom mic stands.

2. Brian Vocal

3. Accordion

4. Guitar

5. Alex Vocal

6. Piano

7. Trumpet

8. Banjo

9. Arthur Vocal
