Technical Information

To summarise from our terms and conditions, found at: https://www.thefourkicks.co.uk/terms

“The performance area should meet the band’s minimum spatial requirements, i.e., 3.5 meters in width, 2.2 meters in height, and 2.5 meters in depth. In the event that the Client or Venue supplies a stage, it is imperative that such stage maintains its structural integrity under the combined weight of the band and its equipment.

Furthermore, the performance area must be adequately sheltered, effectively protecting the band and their equipment from water, rain, high winds, falling debris, snow, or any other conditions that might result in equipment damage or pose safety risks.

The client/venue must ensure a safe supply of electricity. The band requires at least two 230/240v, 13-amp power-rated sockets within 2 metres of their Performance area.”

We provide a completely self contained set up which includes all of our own instrumentation, plus a powerful PA system suitable for medium-sized rooms of 250+ guests and lighting rig – essentially everything we would need to perform under the vast majoirty of circumstances.

Likewise, if you’re room capacity is larger than this, please speak to us about your requirements and we will be happy to work with you to secure a larger PA system suitable for your space at a reasonable cost.

If your venue does have an in house PA system and/or lighting rig, please let us know and this may allow us to offer a discount along with allowing for a more efficient set up process.

Please note: this is subject to us speaking to the venue / seeing the venue’s technical specifications are compatable with our performance before-hand.

We would require the full address and any specific instructions to gain access  to the venue, along with times that the space we will be performing in will be available for us to start our set up.

We would also need to know whether there is a sound limiter at the venue in advance of our arrival (see question below), as this may mean we will need to explore alternative options to an acoustic drum set.

It’s also handy to provide us with good idea of timings and how things run at the venue to ensure we can arrive at an appropriate time for set up and don’t go over any curfews that the venue may have.

We can speak to the venue to find this information out on your behalf if you provide us with their contact information, so please don’t worry if you’re not sure what to ask! We’re happy to help.

Sound limiters, essentially monitoring devices, are installed in many venues to control noise levels. They’re set to certain decibel (dB) thresholds and, upon detecting sound exceeding these limits, either cut off or reduce the sound output. This mechanism aims to mitigate disturbances to surrounding areas and comply with local noise ordinances. The most common setup includes a visual indicator, often a traffic light system, to alert the band of the current sound level in relation to the limiter’s threshold.

Venues ideally should inform you of any sound / volume restrictions and curfews when you book with them, but it’s still always worth asking just incase. Likewise, The Four Kicks will be happy to contact them on your behalf if you are able to provide us with contact information.

We have compiled a more detailed article on the subject of sound limiters along with a few questions you can ask – this can be found at: https://www.thefourkicks.co.uk/noise-and-sound-limiters/
