Tech Spec & Rider
We perform in a number of different line-ups at different events.
Please use the information below as a rough guide to our technical requirements, and call Mike on +44 (0) 7855 488 462 to make sure which line-up is performing at your event.
Swing Orchestra public performances (jazz clubs, theatres)
For public performances at theatres, jazz clubs and festivals we generally perform with our 11- or 12-piece Swing Orchestra.
Please refer to this generic Swing Orchestra Tech Spec and get in touch to make sure there are no changes specific to your event.
Private Functions (weddings, corporate events)
As standard, our party bands provide a top quality PA system (suitable for audiences of up to 200 people) for all performances in England and Wales.
We are able to provide a larger PA system and/or dancefloor effect lighting package on request.
We are also happy to work with external production companies if you have one at your event. Please refer to our generic Function Tech Spec and get in touch to make sure there are no changes specific to your event.
Stage area & soundcheck
We require approximately 60 to 90 minutes to set up and soundcheck.
We require the following stage sizes to perform - we are happy performing either on a raised stage or directly on the floor.
- 6- to 12-piece line-ups: 7m by 4m
- 13-piece and larger line-ups: 8m by 5m
- Shows with dancers: 10m by 6m
Like all function bands, we ask for food and soft drinks to be provided for each musician and crew member. We also ask for a changing room/green room that we can use throughout our stay at your venue.
For more information on our hospitality rider, please ask to see our Quote Information Booklet.
At international events we require a full spec PA system plus stage lighting, backline and instrument hire. Please get in touch for further details.
Our small bands (5-piece and smaller) are able to provide PA systems suitable for up to 200 people, although some of the acoustic line-ups don't require PA systems as standard so this is an odd-on option.
Our small bands require approximately 4m by 3m to perform, and 45 minutes to set up and soundcheck.
Please contact us if you'd like us to send you the tech specs for our small bands.
