    Smooth Duo

  1. A performance space large enough for us and our instruments etc. Even though we are a Duo not a Band with several members, we do need a fair bit of room, please. Andy stands up at the front to play his Latin percussion, drums, keyboards and sax. APPROX 12ft x 8ft IS PREFERRED.

  3. Ease of access to the performing space from the parking space.
  4. Somewhere to get changed and leave clothes, instrument cases etc.
  5. Some sandwiches at the end of our performance and some water to drink when required would be really welcome if possible, please. NB. We never drink alcohol when we are working.
  6. At least three power sockets.
  7. We don't allow members of the public etc to use any of our equipment for Health & Safety and Insurance reasons. So if microphones are required for speeches etc, you must make arrangements with the Venue for provision of their House P.A.
  8. A stage platform is preferred but not essential.
  9. Our working area, power sockets, stage etc must all be protected from the weather and safe and secure.
  10. We will need access to the performance area at least 3 hours before the performance is due to start so that we can set up and sound check and change into our stage clothes before guests arrive.
