Technical - Stage Plan

This is the stage plan for our normal 7-piece band concerts.

Bateman Brothers Stage Plan

We prefer SM58 microphones or similar.

If using acoustic piano, this will need to be amplified. If using electric piano then amplification requirements depend on the venue.

Bass is self-supporting. DI may be required - depending on the venue.

Drums are usually not miked but in larger venues, a bass drum mic, snare mic and two overheads wil usually suffice. Drummer requires a piece of carpet to set up on.

Seperate monitor mixes for vocalists / trombone-trumpet-clarinet / piano / drums are preferred. If only two mixes available then vocalists / the rest of us!

For the Ultimate Louis Armstrong Show

The setup is pretty much the same with the following changes:

The left-side vocal mic is ocassionally used for trumpet too, although he stands away from the mic

A banjo/guitarist sits (chair required) in the curve of the piano. He does not amplify his instruments, preferring a microphone set low.

Please note: The slide for projection on the back curtain will be provided on the night if required and you have the facility.

Links to press packs will appear here soon...
