To Insure an Uninterrupted performance due to power loss, provide a 220 volt, 50 amp, female, (residential electric range style) grounded or non-grounded receptacle. Almost without exception all buildings have 220 volt power available. All that is required is the proper electrical connection.
A. STAGING
En’novation is a visually entertaining band, so we suggest that a stage/riser to be provide so that there is an unobstructed view for all of your guests. Please provide a stage riser/area, of appromatly12’ X 24′.  The dance floor should be located directly in front of the stage. Guest tables should be located at least ten feet from the front corners of the band stage to allow space for PA speakers, lights etc. If tables must be located near the band stage/speakers we recommend younger guests be seated in this area, as they are generally more tolerant to the close proximity of the band.
In order to provide the best sound quality possible we request that our sound engineer be located; out front, across from the band, and as close to the dance floor as space will allow. A second choice of location would be against a back wall across from the band or against a sidewall.
B. DRESSING ROOM / BAND MEAL
Private dressing rooms to accommodate a total of eight (8) persons must be provided. It should be located as close to the event as possible. The dressing room must be stocked at load-in time with ice, water, soft drinks and cups. En’novation requests a hot meal for 8 persons prior to performance time or on band breaks if necessary.  Subs or deli trays with condiments and bread are acceptable if hot food cannot be provided.
