                   Technical Information

Front of House:
 The house sound system must be capable of producing a 20 Hz
 to 20 kHz frequency range at 110 db SPL on the back row of the
 venue. Many times church sound systems need to be
 supplemented by additional power amps, main speakers, and SUB
 WOOFERS to achieve this requirement. The subs are very
 important to us and again, this equipment can be either rented or
 borrowed. Let us know if you have a problem fulfilling any

 Must have at least 24 channels with XLR inputs, 4 pre-fader
 auxiliaries (8 preferred), and phantom power. Please have graphic
 EQs set up on the mains and monitors at mix position.

LCD Projection System:
 For participants to get the most out of the event, we require a video
 projector and screen. Mike will bring a laptop with Media Shout® for
 lyric projection. If the house lights cannot be dimmed, then the
 projector should output at least 2000 ANSI Lumens.

 Please have a qualified audio technician present before, during, and
 after the event. Also, we will need 2 or 3 people to help with load in
 and load out if possible. We will be bringing our FOH engineer with
 us, Dave Foreman.

               Technical Information (continued)

JP Scott will assist the house engineer and take the band through
monitor checks after a line check has been done on all channels.
This is the quickest and most efficient way for us to do monitors. We
will bring 3 in-ear monitor systems with us. We need one non-
powered mix for the drummer, along with 3 non-powered feeds to the
in-ear monitor systems. Separate mixes are preferred:

If only 4 AUX sends are available, please set up as follows:

  IEM Mix 1:   Mike Suit (Lead Vox / Acoustic Guitar)

We need at least one (preferably TWO) aux sends for effects, as well
as four mono returns. We will be bringing our effect rack with us.

  Effect 2:      TC Electronics M-One XL (right)

We will be inserting an Avalon 737 vocal preamp into the center VOX

We will need three hotel rooms, one with a king, and two with two double
beds in each. Please have the room keys available for Andy before the
event ends.

If possible, we will also need a private room at the venue to prepare for the
event. If Internet access could be made available in this room or
elsewhere, we would greatly appreciate it.

*Note: If you already have food arranged for the event, we are more than happy to eat
it! If you want to provide food separately for us, that’s great, too. Here are a few simple

   1. SALAD - It would be a good idea to add a garden salad with Ranch
      dressing to the meals. We will eat salad anytime it is provided.

   2. PIZZA - We like pizza, but not every night. Sometimes we might all
      be craving Pizza Hut. However, the last three venues may have
      provided it for us already. So if you are considering pizza, it might
      be a good idea to ask first.

   3. SNACKS - Fruit plates are a winner every time! We like
      strawberries, pineapple, grapes, apples, and bananas. In addition,
      cookies, granola bars, chips, and the usual junk is always

   4. DRINKS/BEVERAGES - Simple. Water, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Minute
      Maid Orange Juice.

   5. FAST FOOD - Absolutely! However, it would be hard to get specific
      on this menu. If you want to do fast food, it might be best to take
      food orders after we arrive or during a sound check. We like
      Wendy’s, Sonic, In-and-Out Burger (California special), Arby’s and

   6. DELI - Deli trays are a good way to go. We are happy making our
      own sandwiches.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. We are always
grateful for anything that is provided for us. These are just a few things
that we enjoy and might make us feel a little more at home while on the
road. We look forward to seeing you soon!
