Additional Booking Notes
Shows require music played at a volume so that it can be heard over the noise of the crowd, so we ask that you provide a sound system with adequate volume for the performance space. I can bring the music on CD, iPod, or memory stick. If your event has a DJ, we ask that we be able to contact him or her ahead of time to coordinate the music format so that the show (and your event) goes smoothly.
