Stage, Sound, Lighting
At most of Sgt. Pepper’s bookings, our
clients provide stage, sound & lighting. Nevertheless, we have the
ability to provide sound, lighting and special effects.
cannot provide a stage, but stages are readily available from party
Our band members own several P.A.
systems. For a small venue, we can provide the typical speakers on
stands. For larger venues and larger crowds, we can provide larger
systems, including large Mackie powered subwoofers and speakers, QSC
monitors, snake, and so on.
mix a smaller P.A. system from the stage. Using the larger system
requires us to hire a sound engineer to mix sound from off the
stage, at an additional cost.
Generally, we can provide sound, when
requested, for crowds of up to 1000 – 2000 people.
larger venues, such as the Ojai Wine Festival (4,000
attendees), or Mammoth’s Night of Lights (8,000 attendees) or
Santa Barbara’s Summer Concerts in the Park, (5,000
attendees) a professional sound company should be hired.
With regard to lighting, we can provide
light trees, as well as coordinated ambient lights positioned on the
stage. A simple lighting set up can be operated from the stage, but
if the client wants a more professional lighting set up, e.g., where
someone operates the lights to coordinate with the music we need to
hire a lighting engineer.
Finally, we have two multi-media
presentations for use when the client can provide a projector and
screen, such as theater gigs. One set is comprised of photographs of
the Beatles and other rock stars. The other is an HD kaleidoscope
movie, similar to a 1960s light show. See the photo below.
Both shows are already loaded onto a
laptop, so we would just need a projector which can accept an input
from a Mac laptop, and a screen.
