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.
