Pigs: Canada's Pink Floyd tribute is a high-quality act that can dazzle audiences of any size, but in order to make our show successful, certain conditions must exist. These conditions are enumerated below:
We take pride in our sound. We require least 2 hours in order to load in our extensive gear and to perform a sound and lights check. Load in and soundcheck should be complete no less than 1 hour before the start of the performance. This is crucial to the success of the show.
At any given venue we will require space for at least 2 large vehicles (vans etc.) and one small trailer. Parking should be as close to the venue as possible.
Lights take up a lot of power and we like a lot of lights. We require no less than a 100 amp 3 phase 120/208 service available with either cams or a Hubble pin and sleeve connector. In some situations a 50 amp range plug will suffice.
All performances outside of Victoria will require purchaser to provide clean and reputable accomodation as follows: 4-6 double rooms depending on production value (call to confirm).
We require a secure and private area with a minimum of 10 chairs and 2 mirrors as a dressing/preparation area. By the time soundcheck has ended, the band will require a catering table which includes coffee, tea, juice and/or soda; a tray of munchies which may include vegetables, deli meats, cheeses, and breads or crackers; 24 beers of a non-domestic variety will make for very happy Pigs.
Pigs is a tribute act and therefore registers all of its sets with SOCAN. All venue licenses and fees should be up to date and in compliance with local and international laws and regulations. Liquor licences are also the responsibility of the purchaser.
We require at minimum a 24' x 16' x 2' stage to fit all of us comfortably, and ideally a 6' x 8' drum riser will help add "depth" to our performance.
Sound and Lights
Sound and Lights are considered on a per-venue basis. We prefer to bring our own sound and lights people, but if this is unacceptable, the following is a minimum requirement.
