Additional Booking Notes
If your event/gathering is "indoors," then set-up will require approximately a 10' x 10' area near a power outlet.
If your event/gathering is "outdoors" and power is required to run my 500 watt professional PA system and/or guitar amplifier, then set-up would require a 10' x 10' area approximately 10' to 15' MAXIMUM from the power source unless the event planner provides the additional extension cord(s) / outlet boxes to reach set-up area.
