RIDER

Please find enclosed a small list, of the mostly essentials, for me to deliver the best show. Things you may think are obvious, but sometimes people want to put me into a situation they can make a commission on, but that I know I fail in.

These are the preferred basics for my concert show.

1 • *A real piano

   - not an outer case of a piano with a hidden electric keyboard inside 

     - (in tune piano for best results, with all notes working - though not essential) 

2 • The right hand side (curve side) of the piano towards the room;

plus slightly more so that more people can see the keys

(to where my back is a 1/3 to the room).

3 • SEATED VENUE / theatre like setting (exceptions exist)

 

4 • A minimum one hour set up time allowed

 

5 • Show booked to run for one hour

     with an allowance for an extra half hour run on

 

6 • Doors open to performance space at least a half hr prior

7 • The room to have no hidden corners.

It can not be that people are blocked from the line of sight or sound to the performance area.

(Any such areas no view to the piano closed off).

8 • I do not perform / sing with a mask on.

     a safe distance can be maintained or a screen put up as required. 

9 • I do not perform while people eat

Thank you for your kind attention to these details,

looking forwards to a special performance for everyone.

*One Hour set up

Sometimes an hour and a half, access to the performance area, especially on the first time. 

It’s ok if other people are there.

Once it's all set up their's only a sound check for 5 mins max for the dynamics for that room.

BREAKDOWN:

rig set up: 20 min

sound test: 20 min

meet with people: 20 min

buffer just in case 30 min
