a large band, six musicians, lights and sound equipment. This
all takes up a lot of space. Revival also need room to move
about and entertain. The band is very accommodating when it
comes to small stages, and has managed to put on some great
shows under difficult circumstances.
will put on a far better show if your venue has a proper stage,
raised slightly above the audience so that everyone can see.
A good stage also allows the band to attain a good sound which
enables them to sing and play better.
You and your
guests will be having a great time during Revivals gig, but
please remember that the band are working. They often play for
2 - 3 hours under hot lights with only short breaks in
between. They will not appreciate being asked to change in the
gents or as on one occasion, outside in the car park. A room
large enough for six people and three changes of clothes is
the ideal. Coffee and sandwiches are always a nice bonus if
you can arrange it.
and Setting Up
Rock 'n' Roll these days demands sophisticated equipment. The
band will provide all of their own sound and lighting equipment.
However, please be aware that there is a lot of heavy equipment
to be moved into the venue. Close access for motor vehicles
should be considered. Is the venue upstairs? Is there a lift?
At the end of the evening will the band have to carry their
equipment out through the audience?
Once the band
and their equipment is on the stage it can take up to one and
a half hours to set it up. Set up will take longer if the stage
is small. Can the band gain access to the room one and a half
hours before your audience arrives? Please try to keep the audience
out of the room while the band is setting up. There will be
a lot of feed back and unpleasant noises and the band only want
the audience to see them when they are in their stage clothes
and ready to go.
and the legal stuff
not a loud band and you will find them very co-operative. However
it is a Rock 'n' Roll band. Part of the enjoyment is the excitement
generated by the sound. Revival need an incredible 500 watts
of sound system just to overcome the noise made by 200 people
chattering. In total Revival has a 2 Kilo Watt sound system
which is able to cope with any size venue.

evening will be noisy. Have you considered the neighbours? Have
you offered them a free ticket?
