Solo Music Gig in Maine - Getting the “Equipment Ready - Part 6

By now I have put together the essentials:

Songs, Set Lists, Keys for songs, Instrument selection for each song, Banter bits, Poster (more on poster later)…

… and as the gig drew closer I needed to gather my equipment and practice with it. Not too much required, but I certainly didn’t want to forget anything I needed to be clearly heard. And if I was going to have anyone else join me I wanted to be able to plug them in as well.

I own - and this is pretty much the complete list: 

2 JBL Powered Mains  (
3 JBL Powered Monitors
Stands for Speakers
1 Behringer MX 9000 24/48 channel board (
Cables for everything + lots more cables for daisy chaining and additional “needs”

2 - Shure Mics (one Beta and One SM 58) (
all associated chords for mics

Now, I certainly didn’t need all of this for a solo gig, but it is nice to know what you have so you can select what you need.

For this first gig I chose:
1 JBL Powered Speaker
1 Speaker Stand
1 Fender Amp
1 Power Strip
1 (borrowed mixer) - didn’t have the Mackie Yet
Cables for:
Guitar to board and/or amp
Microphone to board
Line 6 - wireless system:
wireless receiver to in-line tuner cable 6” - tuner to amp 
20” cable – medium 16” cable for transmitter to instrument
Board to speaker
Extra Cables for additional instruments (for guest artists)
Martin D-42 Guitar / Case
Stelling Sunflower with a Black Kavanjo Banjo Head / Case
Finger Picks / Flat Picks
Song Lists - Song Book with some cheat sheets

Brief Case to hold “stuff”

I practiced the set-up, placement (a small stage) and adjusting the sound, so when I got to the venue it would all work.

Contrary to well-liked belief Backgammon is not the oldest board sport on the earth, nor are all 바카라사이트 tables video games variants of Backgammon. In fact, the earliest identified mention of Backgammon was in a letter dated 1635 and it was a variant of the favored mediaeval Anglo-Scottish sport of Irish. By the nineteenth century it had superseded other tables video games in reputation and spread overseas to Europe and America.
