>> Basic Set-Up Needs
The following set-up information is suggested to provide your audience with the best performance possible:
Minimum stage size of 12' deep and 16' wide (larger is always better). Keep in mind that Songblast is an interactive show and audience members are invited on stage to participate during the performance.
The stage should be set as close to the audience as possible with care taken to keep seating in front of the stage as much as possible.
Having a secure and private room (dressing room) near the performance area is extremely helpful to store personal belongings, change, etc. Some performances also include artists changing costumes during the show.
Artist provides their own sound and lights for most settings. Please ensure electrical outlets are located near the performing area.
