I plan on bringing various percussion instruments, two microphones, an
and a 1402 mixer. With this setup, I can do all my soundchecking offstage
with headphones, and the rest of the souncheck as I start my first song.
>3) How many performers are self-contained (i.e. have their own
>amps/cabinets, and are able to do their thing independently of a PA) and
I can bring a mackie powered speaker and be completely self contained
without any trouble. It seems just as easy though to send a single 1/4"
cord to the main sound system though. I monitor from headphones anyway.
On the subject of performing time slots: I will happily cut my show short
if need be. I would like to throw my ideas into the mix via performing
(especially if I'm driving a few hours to do so), but this is not the
of my attendance there. I really want to spend the time learning about
everyone else does their thing - and stealing their precious ideas...
On the subject of a 10 hour show: I dig it. I think 10 minutes quiet
between sets will be welcome time to let our ears reset (kind of like
between meal courses) I can listen all day and night with these little
rests to relax and discuss the last show with (new) friends.
