It is difficult for us to give you an accurate cost of your function or event until we find out more information such as location, times and further requirements you might have.
Yes Brass Monkees come with a full professional PA & Lighting set up and these costs are included in any quote we give to you.
We also come with our own professional sound technician meaning we can provide you with the very best sound for any size of venue.
Brass Monkees will happily set up on or off stage, indoors or out (providing the weather is good or measures are taken to make sure we are protected).
As a guide the following measurements show our suggested space requirements:
9 piece band: 6m width x 3.5m depth
In order to put on a great performance with high quality sound, we will need to do a proper soundcheck once we have finished setting up which does mean making noise for a brief period.
If we are to be setting up in the same room as where the guests are eating dinner before the evening party commences, then there are measures we can take to compromise. Just make sure you let us know when you get in touch so we can discuss this with you.
A noise limiter is a device that bands/DJs are require to plug all of their equipment into. This monitors the sound levels of the band/DJ in the room and if the volume exceeds a certain level, will cut the power supply meaning everything will switch off!
Now although Brass Monkees aren't in the habit of deafening audiences we do require a certain level of allowance in order to perform to the best of our abilities. We always come with a professional sound technician who is constantly stood out in the audience areas to keep check of levels and to keep the best live mix going throughout the night.
With this said however the devices can cause issues with certain frequencies as there is not a set guideline on how technicians are to install such meters.
Based on our experience we have set out the below parameter in order to make sure that we will be able to work with you if you have such a meter installed:
9 piece band: We will not be able to work with a noise limiter that cuts off the power when less than 100 decibels is reached.
The above is based on the limiter being set back at least 7 metres from the front of the stage or performing area.
If we are to work with an in-house (or hired in) company then this is not usually a problem as long as we are able to liaise with them before your event.
Our technical rider is also available in PDF form, please see our Terms, Booking & Technical page to download the PDF.
Yes you can :) We have generic playlists that we can play before the performance and during our breaks.
You are welcome to provide us with a pre compiled playlist using Spotify and then just e-mail us the URL link and we'll load it onto our system ready to play.
We will require access to a supply of soft drinks and water free of charge for the duration of our time onsite.
We do ask that a hot meal be provided for all musicians. This can be similar to what the guests are eating or something separate.
