We are always looking for bands to perform at Odd Nights. Here are some details.
Must be original non-licensed music. No covers.
We do not compensate for bands to play. You may sell merchandise though.
We provide the PA System and an Engineer and the following equipment:
Power for your gear (there will be powerstrips to the left and right for guitar or bass amplifiers)
PA – (2 QSC KLA TOPS, 2 18″ QSC KW SUBS)
Or JBL subs and tops powered by Crown amps
16 Channel Yamaha mixer.
3 monitors for vocals (QSC K10)
2 mics for vocals
2 mics for guitars
XLR cable that connects to your Bass Amplifier and routes directly into PA mixer.
DI for keys or sub-mixer.
a 4 mic set up for Drums (kick, hi-hat, stereo overhead).
I also have an extra Stereo DI just in case you need one.
Here is how I usually set up my inputs on my mixer.
1-4 (Drums) Kick, HH/SNARE, Overhead, Overhead
5 – Guitar
6 – Guitar
7 – Bass
8 – Keys
9 – Open
13- Line input
14 -Line Input
15/16 – stereo Ipad or DJ playback.
I usually do a very thorough sound check with the first band and then adjust accordingly in between sets (usually a half hour between setups)
There will be signs posted for Band load in (directly in front of the museum), if you want to make things smoother during load in, you can send someone to my area (side entrance of the museum) and I’ll give you a cart that you can use to load and unload your gear.
45 – 60 mins each set. 15-30 min sound checks.
