Got a gig? Need a sound system and someone to operate it? Want a recording of your performance? Just need someone on the mixing board?
I have what you need. I can set you up for small/medium size gigs, and I charge $120 a night for most full bands (smaller acts, simple acoustic sets, etc. are negotiable.)
-Extra $50 for a dry multitrack recording of the entire performance to mix yourself, or $80 for me to mix that recording for you to a stereo track. (Again smaller acts negotiable)
-Extra $20 to add a single-angle video to the recording/or if you just want the video and not the mixer-recorded sound I can do that too. (Given there is a decent spot to put the camera)
*Payment due upon my arrival at the gig, before I set up. No exceptions.*
(If you just need someone to mix the band live with your existing system, I charge $20/hour. Just give me a quick rundown of your set-up and I will tend to the mix during the show)
You have the talent and the venue, I have the sound reinforcement.
Do not expect "state-of-the-art" gear or anything super elegant. Expect your band to be mixed and recorded for a great bargain. I will mic your instruments and vocals and mix them live. I do have great gear and I possess extreme passion for live music so you can trust I will do everything I can to make your band sound as good as possible for your audience.
What I have:
-An 18 channel mixer feeding two 15" powered speakers on stands (mixer is wirelessly controlled, meaning no giant snake/cables running through the room.)
The mixer has 6 additional xlr outputs, however I do not own any other monitors yet, so if needed we can run one speaker to the crowd and one to the band. If you have your own monitors we can discuss using those.
-Microphones, cables, stands etc.
-18 channel recording interface.
-Knowledge of my system and how it works. Again, I am not some 30-year seasoned expert and I probably won't make you sound "arena-ready" or better than you are, but I will get you as close to that as I can.
I have spent my hard earned money on a great system and I expect my gear to be treated with respect, so if I see someone abusing my gear, I will act accordingly. Depending on the offense I will either politely ask you to stop, or pull the plug on you altogether for blatant disrespect cases. You know… just have common sense and courtesy for MY stuff and there won't be any problems at all.
That said, I consider myself a very easy-going person and I love to put on a fantastic show for people. I also love to make new friends and connections. I am a musician myself and I am in two small-time rock bands.
Shoot me an email if it sounds like a good fit for your gig! We will work out the smaller details then.
*I do not rent out my gear alone, this ad is for either me to mix your band with your gear, or me to mix your band with my gear. If you need my gear, I will be the one operating it.*
Hit me up! Let's give em a show!
