Requirements, our baby-grand-like keyboards, and our utility
General Requirements and Rider
Stage: We do not need an actual stage, but we do need a space that is either rectangular shaped 8' deep X 24' long, or square 16' x 16' if you prefer an in-the-round performance. We are able to squeeze and fit into slightly smaller spaces if needed, these sizes indicated are comfortable. If possible, please try to keep the stage height under 1' since the success of an interactive piano event that encourages audience involvment may count on us and the stage being easily accessible. Also, we prefer dark carpet which hides cords better and will be more visually appealing to the audience.
Travel and Accommodations: When the event is more than 100 miles from Memphis, we require separate overnight accommodations on or near the site of the event. When the event is over 300 miles we require two rooms to be supplied for two nights. We appreciate any meals included during our travels. We travel by highway in our own vehicle and welcome any compensation for fuel.
Stage Decorations: We do not supply any stage sets or decorations.
Power: We will need one 110v Quad box at center stage, approx. 20amp, connected to power, or other appropriate source of power.
Lighting: The lighting we supply is simple and minimal.
Sound: We will bring all sound adequate to handle most events or ballrooms seating up to 600, or we can supply a pre-mixed XLR jack "line level" signal to your Direct Box to achieve a "Mic level" to tie into a larger house system.
Instruments: We supply our own musical instruments.
If you are flying us in and providing all instruments and gear:
2 Acousic grand pianos of similar color, size, and look. If you
have found the Quik-Lok BX-14 Padded Keyboard Bench stools/benches
the sound system could have some kind of reverb for vocal sweetening,
2 boom stands need to be the type that are extendable, not just little
vocal mics we prefer are Shure SM58-A Beta and we would want 3 or
pianos have to be amplified with a microphone or other electronic
3 monitors. One for each of us and one in the middle.
would need transportation provided to and from the airport
