The Mandolinquents prefer to play without PA in friendly acoustics, but can provide their own where necessary, within the UK.
The system is very compact and very high quality, suitable for all but the very largest venues.
Using a house system.
If a house system is available, the artists carry their own mics and compact mixer providing a standard jack mono output to the house system.
if a house PA is used, requirements are:
4 instrument mics, four vocal mics.
We sit down to play, so if possible please provide low level mic stands apart from one for Hilary James' vocal mic.
The quartet sit in a gentle semi-circle at centre front of stage.
Line up from stage left to right: Gerald Garcia (guitar), Simon Mayor (mandolin, guitar, violin, vocals), Richard Collins (mandolin, banjo, vocals), Hilary James (mandobass, vocals).
Simple requirements: warm and static please.
Four chairs without arms.
