Venue

Starting times for bands vary and are agreed during booking. Parking is free and abundant. Busses & RVs can be accommodated. Load in is through the front entrance, vehicles may be temporarily parked immediately adjacent to the door on the east side. It is approximately 30’ from curb to stage. There is a ramp up the curb, and 3 steps to get on stage. The stage is dual purpose and holds seating for the majority of the week. For entertainment, the tables and chairs are removed, as is the front railing. There is no green room on location. WiFi password is: oldtowne One word, lowercase, “e” at the end. Since some groups utilize their own sound tech, not all shows are booked with a house engineer. Verify tech responsibility with booking agent to determine the Sound system consists of 2400w power through the mains and 3600w for low-frequency extension. A digital board provides 16 input channels, 4 mono and 2 stereo monitor mixes (1 on stage, 1 at board), an ambient mix (utilizing the Bose jukebox speakers), as well as the main mix. Everything can be controlled
from the stage via iPad, though a dedicated sound tech is always recommended to maximize the impact of your music. Board can provide a multitrack or stereo recording of the event. Lights include 8 LED par washes, 25 moving mirror luminaries, a lazer/strobe, and a haze machine. Lights are controlled via iPad and may be operated by the sound tech, or from stage, or by someone in the audience who is familiar with your music.

Equipment

Venu provides One (1) iPad loaded with both light and sound control apps. While it is possible to switch between these, it is often preferable to have simultaneous access. Users are encouraged to bring an additional iPad to control the soundboard. Please pre-load with the Qu-Pad app which is available for free in the App Store. Advanced loading allows users to become familiar with the interface before the day of the show. Limited control of monitors is also available on iPhones via the free Qu-You app. Use of personal iPad for lighting would require purchasing the Luminair app and loading system settings.
