We can usually work with whatever is available at the venue. However, outdoor performances will need to be under a waterproofed shelter such as an amply sized tent with side panels and raised staging above the ground to prevent flooding.
Naturally electricity will always be needed at all venues. We require three 120 volt 20 amp circuits (Preferably dedicated) in relatively close proximity to the staging area.
