What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 45 - 120 minutes
We are a bluegrass oriented band, but do not play that in-your-face bluegrass. We are rather mello.
4 vocal mics; three instrument mics; bass amp or line to PA from electric bass.
We can provide our own sound equipment when necessary. Prefer a sound man on site.
