The Small Print and Technical Requirements


  1. Smooth DuoSmooth Duo need a fair bit of room to accommodate Andy's instruments so a cleared area of at least 10ft x 8 ft plus a double power socket is preferred. Stage platforms are not a requirement.
  2. A safe parking place for our Renault Master van plus ease of access to the performing space is essential.
  3. Somewhere to get changed is preferred but we really don't mind getting changed in the Loos as long as there is somewhere secure to store clothes, instrument cases etc.
  4. We do not drink alcohol when we are working but we do appreciate it if we can be provided with Tea/coffee/water during our time in the venue. Also some sandwiches or pizza at the end of our performance would be welcome, but not essential.
  5. We never allow anyone to use any of our equipment for Health & Safety and Insurance reasons. So if microphones are required for speeches etc, alternative arrangements must be made.
  6. Our working area, power sockets, belongings, vehicle etc must all be protected from the weather and safe and secure. We prefer not to work outdoors.
  7. We will need access to the performance area approx 2 hours before so that we can set up, sound check and change into our stage clothes before guests/customers arrive.


NB. We only perform at venues which are on the UK mainland and which comply with Health & Safety regulations.
