SR contacts nationwide
« on: September 18, 2008, 02:03:53 pm »

Hello all,

I'm looking for anyone who can point me to a website or provide a list of recommended sound companies who have package pricing supporting live shows.

I need to put together pricing for a group that will tour where venues could be anywhere from 100 people to over 5000.  The band does not want to cart their own sound and engineers.

Any help?

Regards,

Stu

Not a bad plan if I'm opening up bidding...

but what i'm doing here is trying to create a set of "packages" for pricing.

I.E.  if soemone wants us to do a show in a room that holds 1500 people that will be full, I need to know, best estimate,  what the cost would be to put sound in that room with an engineer and tech.  

After the job is nailed down...   I send out the job to the market place as you've suggested.  And bidding ensues.

I'm looking for about 3 packages that I assume would look something like:

PACKAGE A
Small Room   150-500 people

PACKAGE B
Medium Room   500-1500 people

PACKAGE C
Large Room   1500-5000 people

I see, but the problem will be that different markets command different rates (Raleigh, NC goes for much cheaper than Orlando, FL), and you will also run into issues with certain venues (hotel charging 20% outside A/V fee) etc.



I'm sure if you have a technical rider for your band some of the people here could get you that ballpark price.

that's great information...   this is the kind of info i need to gather... i'm kinda starting from scratch so this is why having someone to talk to directly in different regions is of value...   hence my original statement regarding the need for  a national list of SR providers  so i can get on the phone and make the calls.

any help?

This link is ProSoundWeb's  list of sound company links.

It's not organized by geographical area, so you'll have to look around.

http://www.epdweb.com/

about the closest thing.

If there were a better list I'm sure people would know about it.

You're asking for something that really doesn't exist. In the good old audio world normally the talent would send out a rider to the prospective client. and It would be up to them to find a provider for it. Then the technical person (Sounds like thats you) to talk to the production company to make sure things will work for the talent.

Why are you trying to bundle the cost of the system into the talents cost? any reason? Or am I not reading this right?
