We prefer electricity but can perform acoustic upon request
We try to keep things simple. Minimum stage requirement is 8' X 16' (although a bit more is always nice). Covered if outside. We use three vocal and three instrument mics. If you are supplying sound you can plug directly into the DI for the bass amp or mic it - your choice. We can also provide a sound system and oftentimes a sound person to run it. We prefer three on-stage monitors.
We write most of our own material, but do perform a few covers that we have become known for over the years.
