This is the standard stage layout used by the band (space permitting), however they are very flexible and can/will change to suit the venue on the night.
Standard sound feeds required are:-
Main PA left and right get full mixes. Side fills get a blend biased towards brass section but includes vocals and keyboards. Drum monitor get predominantly drums with a heavy kick drum sound. On large stages the drummer requests more keyboards, brass and some vocals. The Brass section have their own IEMS running a mono feed with mostly brass (well balanced but dominant sax) with a spot of keys and vocals adding but not loud in the mix. The Vocal section have their own IEMS running a mono feed with mostly vocals mix balanced but dominant lead singer. The lead singer changes every two numbers so this has to be watched closely (Sandra has loudest vocals, Eddie second with Cheryl the quietest).
3 Vocal mics, 3 Brass section mics + 1 DI (not always used), 8 drum mics, 2 DI’s on keyboards, Bass Guitar has DI out, Lead Guitar is mic’ed and DI’d.
