Technical Rider

REVISION: March 31, 2024

Time in the Wilderness is an instrumental quintet featuring 2 drummers, electric & up-right bass, guitar and trumpet. We generally perform dance-able, groovy jam-band tunes in the genre of bands like Circles Around the Sun, Surprise Chef, Khruangbin, etc. We appreciate the work and attention that goes into running live sound and encourage you to contact us with any details or questions in advance of the performance. Please let us know how we can make your life easier!

The band optionally brings all equipment to run our own shows for small venues (amps, guitars, pa, microphones and cables if needed, per negotiation in advance of our shows). Please let us know how much of the backline will be provided. We prefer minimal mic-ing & monitoring for small venues. As such, details for larger venues such as mic’d drums and additional amplifier mics/di’s are highlighted with an *asterisk.
