We provide our own high quality professional PA system rig which is suitable for the majority of venues. PA costs are included in any quote for the band unless you require a specific set-up (for example if you have multiple acts) or if the venue is large. We have a powerful sound system, consisting of top-of-the-range speakers, well-equipped mixing desk and an assortment of professional microphones supplied by AKG, however, we have a working relationship with a sound and lighting company if something else is required.
Stage size/performance area:
tram69 can perform with or without staging, indoors or outdoors. In the case of an outdoor performance we require a marquee or some kind of covering for the stage area – without this we regret we cannot perform outdoors for insurance reasons. As a guideline, the minimum stage or floor area we require is 5.4m x 3.6m. Our stage plan is available on request.
It is normal for tram69 to perform a total of two hours of live music finishing by midnight, either as two one-hour sets with a break or three shorter sets with two breaks. We can work outside of these hours by prior agreement only.
It is essential that we have sufficient time to set up and sound-check, this can take up to an hour. It is recommended that the equipment would be set up and sound-checked before the arrival of guests. Our standard arrival time is 18:00hrs but this can be changed by prior agreement if required. If there are any stairs at the venue which would affect our ‘get-in’ it is important that we know about this in advance as some of our equipment is very heavy.
Our clients are welcome to make as many requests as they wish (in advance) from our current set list, and we will endeavour to accommodate as many of these as possible. We accept first dance requests regardless of whether the song you would like is on our set list or not, although we require at least one month’s notice to prepare your request.
Food and drink:
For private events our musicians will require one hot meal per six hours of attendance, calculated from the agreed time of the setting up/arrival time. Drinks are always appreciated too so we don’t dry out!
Almost all of our gigs are for private events, but occasionally we perform showcase events. In the meantime, please enjoy the website and drop us an email should you be interested in hiring us.
