Box provides a full backline for the use of all the bands who perform on our stage as well as our in house sound engineer to make sure your gig runs smoothly. If you wish to bring your own guitar amps, please let us know in advance. Drummers are to use our house kit, as change overs are tight.
NB. With Covid restrictions, it will be necessary for all bands to bring their own microphone with them, change overs will be 30 minutes to give us time to wipe down surfaces for next band.
