Here are some recommendations and observations, which you should consider to ensure a smoothly running event.
1. Background music. Who will handle background music and music after the band has finished performing? If the customer does not wish to deal with background music themselves, it is always possible to hire us with a DJ.

2. What sound equipment will be used at the event after the band has finished performing?
3. What sound equipment will be used by hosts and other performers? Do hosts need wireless microphones?
4. Other performers. If the stage is also used by other bands or artists, then it is necessary to agree upon the times and extents to which they use the stage, so that we could coordinate the placement of equipment and other matters.
5. Distance from the power source. If the power source is further than 10 m, we ask that you notify us of this.
6. In case of open air events, it is necessary for the band to perform at a place that protects the band and sound equipment from possible rain (tent or shelter).
7. The sufficiency and proper grounding of the used power. In case of outdoor events, it is recommended that the band and sound equipment receive their power from another phase than catering. In case of using industrial power, it is particularly important for the electrical system to have been installed by a licensed electrician and that the provided 3-phase socket would have the cables in the right order. The voltage has to meet the norms allowed by the power network and not damage the sound equipment.
At the moment of plugging in the 3-phase socket, all equipment has to be turned off as at the moment of plugging in, the voltage is higher than 240V. This rule has to be followed 100% if a power generator is used – switch on the generator and then switch on the equipment.
