We perform this show at a variety of events so the technical requirements are low.
We set up a portable booth 4' x 4' x 8' tall.
Because of the glow-in-the-dark nature of the performance, the show works best when performed in a light-controlled venue that can get dark.
We use two wireless mics and a third wireless pickup for a ukulele.
