Notes for Mangledwurzels Enquiries Form

Your Details: these are required so that we can maintain contact with you. This information will also be used on any contract unless you request otherwise. This information will not be used for any other purpose.

Event Details: the more information you can give us about the venue, the easier it will be for us to ensure a smooth and untroubled event. We are aware that you might not have all the information to hand, but please complete as much as you can.

Date(s) Required: feel free to check the band’s gigs listed on the website to see which dates are free, but please be aware that others might have been blocked by the band also and be unavailable.
And please book early, especially if it is a special event. An enquiry will give you first refusal on a date – but if you leave it too late to get in touch with us, someone else might get in there first.

Venue Size/Capacity: an approximation of the size of the venue and/or the number of people attending will allow us to determine the which PA and lights to bring.

Type of Event: it is useful to know whether this is a public, private or corporate event, a special event such as a birthday, wedding, or anniversary, a charity event, a surprise or theme party, etc.

Indoor or Outdoor: an outdoor performance will require a secure power supply and weatherproof covered stage area (with back and sides to protect the equipment). An alternate indoor location should be provided in case of inclement weather (failure to provide an adequate alternative may result in a performance being cancelled). The decision whether or not to perform outside will be dependent on conditions on the day and at the sole discretion of the artistes. Please note there is a Health & Safety issue here regarding wet (or even damp) conditions which could effect electrical equipment.

Performance Times: the band normally do a standard show containing two 45-minute sets with a 30 minute break in between – but this is negotiable if you have other requirements. Please note that there will be an additional change if the band is required to play after midnight.

Timings: the band will normally arrive two hours before the designated start time. It takes an hour to set-up the equipment, and 5-10 minutes to sound check, and some time to get changed into theoir stage gear. This leaves a reasonable amount of time to cover for any unexpected problems that might arise.
If there is a specific time for earliest access to venue or sound check times, please let us know in advance – there is nothing more dull than sitting in the cars waiting outside a locked club, or waiting for diners to finish eating before we can start setting-up our equipment!

PA & Lights: the band has three PA's depending on the size of the venue, as well as their own lighting, as required. They can also plug into a house PA.

Additional Information: this covers all other eventualities. Are there other artistes performing or a disco? Is there a sound engineer and PA on site? Are there any specific requirements for the event? Will this is a ticketed event, and if so how much are the tickets and what are the outlets? Do you have any other questions?
