This is a continuation of a thread in the off topic forum. Link to thread. Okay so here's the scoop. The event is a big fundraiser, and I will be running the mixer for the main entertainment at the fundraiser. It is a singer/dancer, and a guitarist. The singer is going to take me to and from, so we will not get there for the entire thing. I will not get to set up or strike, just do the cues, etc. Which is disappointing. And we will not get to test the system or find a mix that they like at the actual event. So we will do that today. Not at the venue, somewhere closer. For the thing today, I will set up and strike, and conduct the sound check. Which is excellent practise, because they have events there a couple times a year, and if they see I can handle their system (it's a very small system), they will definitely call me again. We will run through everything, but the space is extremely different and the settings on the mixer will be different, effects will be very diiferent. It is good practise anyway, finding a good mix for that room-- it is L-shaped with huge stone walls covered with plaster (it is an underground bomb shelter, basically). For Wed., it is a big social hall, I don't know much more about it. I will be doing the mix during the performance and will not get any feedback on how it sounds to them on the stage. Just how it sounds to me from the speakers. So I am very nervous about that. I will have a few minutes to shmooze with whoever is doing sound for the rest of the fundraiser. What can I ask that person in order to help me do a better job? Should I call the venue and ask them anything? THANKS!
