We’ll need to arrange: Date and start and end times for set-up and playing; venue address with postcode; access for loading and parking; stage size in square metres, and location of 240V power supply, number of sockets, the audience’s musical preferences. Do you need to play CDs through our P.A? Does the venue have a ‘sound limiting’ system? Will you provide food & drinks for the band? Do you have one favourite song you’d like us to play?
The band will ‘draw’ about 16 Amps which is 240v x 16A = 3,840kW or approx 4kW (W= V x A). For a marquee, band power is separate from catering & lighting, otherwise the music may stop when the ovens start.
