Do you provide the PA system/Sound equipment?
While there are certain venues that use state-of-the-art sound systems for live music, many do not. We encourage you to share the venue with us so we can assess the venue for you.
We have a range of sound system and band equipment to suit different sound requirements. How we sound is extremely important to us, and that is why we ensure we have state-of-the-art sound system for our band. For instance, we use one of the top keyboard Roland Jupiter-80 for our pianist and Yamaha Maple Customs for our drummer. We are using brand new QSC K12 12" powered PA speakers. We are continuously upgrading our instrument and equipment, and we have recently ordered the newly released top professional mixer QSC TOUCHMIX-16 from the United States.
We will fully liasise with the hotel/venue regarding the necessary details so you won't have to worry a thing.
