Sample Technical Rider The Gonnagles
April 13, 2009

This is the generic rider for the Gonnagles. A specific rider will be provided for each performance based on the actual instrumentation and location-specific details. This rider is based on minimal requirements. Some optional requirements that are greatly appreciated are also included (indicated by the words ’would like’). If any of the requirements on this rider is a problem, please contact us to find a solution.

All technical questions can be directed to Frank van Vliet,, +31-6-21563568. Please give Frank a call (a week before the show) to discuss the rider and ensure everything is ok.

Provided by Organisation
Because the Gonnagles are with 10 band members on stage, the stage should be at least 6m wide and 3m deep to fit all of us.

We need a PA which is sufficient for the venue. Please make sure the system is tuned to the venue and 31-band or parametric EQs are installed.

We would like to have six monitors on four separate groups, but we can manage with two monitors on separate groups.

The organisation should provide adequate lighting of the stage. Also, we would like to see some lighting to improve the ambiance of the dancing floor.

Some Microphones with stands
We bring most of the instrument microphones ourselves. This leaves only two vocal microphones (SM58 or equivalent) with large stands.

5x Active DI
We need 5 active DIs (DI-100 or better). If this amount of active DIs is a problem, please let us know and we will bring some (up to 5) with us.

Obviously, the organisation should provide sufficient cables to accomodate the stage plan. This includes a suitable multicable and XLR cables.

The mixer should be able to handle the other requirements of this rider. This basically means 13 microphone channels and sufficient pre auxes for the monitor mixes (4 is preferred, 2 is absolutely required). Please make sure each input channel has at least a sweepable mid-range eq and that the auxes can be AFL-ed. Digital mixers are welcome if we know some days in advance.

Effects and Dynamics
We need a subtle reverb (TC M-350 or similar) and would like to have 4 channels of compression.

FOH position
The FOH position must be in the soundfield. A mixing position side-stage is unacceptable.

Power should be provided at the marked places on the stage plot. Please make sure there are no groundloops and all audio equipment is on one group without any other electronics (like lighting, or kitchen appliances). Also, supply some power drops at the FOH for the two wireless receivers.

Time Schedule
The Gonnagles would like to soundcheck for 60 minutes (we need at least 20 minutes), this is excluding the time to set up the stage. If all cables on the stage are located in the correct place and are labelled, the Gonnagles can plug in themselves within minutes.

Provided by Gonnagles
We will bring a soundengineer to mix the FOH for the Gonnagles during soundcheck and performance.

Wireless system
Our violin player and clarinet player will both bring a Sennheiser EW-172 wireless system, with a frequency selectable between 786.000 and 822.000MHz. The receivers can be placed at the FOH desk (preferrable), at the Monitor desk (if available) or at the stageblock.

Bass amplifier
We will bring our own, very small, bass amplifier which will be used only for sound on stage.
