24 feet x 16 feet is the perfect size needed for front light truss (2) and back lights (5) behind the Band. If a stage this size is not available, then the back lights will be eliminated from the performance. 16 feet x 16 feet should be the minimum for this energetic Band. For high rise stages – stairs should be situated in the front of the stage for easy access during the performance. The performers interact with the guests and need a direct clear path. If the front on the stage is not accessible, then stairs on the left side of the stage (view from audience) is second best.
