Low Valley from Chasing Blue (album review) by
Talented young bands seem to pop up like weeds these days. Every time I turn around, there is another CD from a group that appears to have come out of nowhere, at least on a national level.

Headlining act Chasing Blue, from Boston, is in its element playing live and getting spectators on their feet. If you catch the headline act Chasing Blue at the Lyons Fiddle Festival this weekend,...



Technical Requirements

Chasing Blue often uses a traditional bluegrass setup for our five-piece band, playing around a single mic, but individual mics work great too. Our set is acoustic with vocals. Be forewarned – one voice can get as loud as a Howitzer cannon.

Weddings, Large Stages (Low crowd noise): Single large diaphragm condenser (e.g. Shure KSM-32) in center. Two small diaphragm condensers (e.g. Shure SM-137) to either side for fiddle and banjo. Bass uses a DI.

Smaller Rooms (Loud Bars/Clubs): Three SM-58’s for vocals, four SM-57’s for instruments. Bass uses a DI.

Two monitors positioned around the center microphone are preferred but one will suffice.

We can provide microphones, if necessary.
