How long is your performance?
Up to 90 minutes as needed. For "Dinner and Show" a more appropriate length is 60 minutes.
Do you travel out of FL for performances?
Of course. The act is based in FL with a satellite in PA- and currently has performances booked in FL, NC,
PA, MI, and IL.
How far ahead do we have to book Tom As Garth?
I am a full time performer, with a schedule that extends up to a year or two for select dates. Usually 3-4 months is recommended.
What if you're schedule indicates you aren't available for our dates?
Please contact me! If it's a date when I'm doing a typical beaches venue, we can probably work something out.
Can you provide your own sound and lighting?
Absolutely, if the venue is within driving distance and that distance can be covered within a reasonable time frame.
I have several sets of equipment for about any size area or venue. As per lighting, check out the supplied
videos that show the powerful, synchronized light show throughout the performance. What is needed / desired can be discussed when providing you a quote. Some sort of seating is recommended, plus an A/C outlet must be nearby with enough amperage to carry the supplied systems. Two standard 20 amp circuits is plenty.
If using an already supplied system, only one XLR input is needed, as I supply the mix discreetly from the stage. If the house engineer will be mixing, two XLR inputs and one 1/4" input will be needed (vocals, guitar, audio tracks). If it will be an acoustic performance, only two XLR inputs are needed.
How large a stage or setup area is needed?
There is no definitive size needed. I've used small on the floor areas in house parties, and I've
used large concert stages such as the Bloomsburg PA Fair.
To add the optional deluxe lighting package, the stage or area behind my setup needs to be 12' wide
and 8' front to back. These dimensions are needed to accomodate a lighting truss.
A multi panel portable stage can be added on for an additional fee.
A stage is not necessarily needed as long as the performance surface / floor is flat.
The closer to the audience, the better, as the show is often face to face and highly interactive.
How many members are in your band/act?
Tom As Garth is a powerful, one man concert style performance. As an added feature, I've collaborated with
Garth's touring lead guitar player to provide me with the very same guitar work he plays with Garth for a selection of songs.
What is your fee / cost?
The fee is in line with the standard of a professional caliber tribute/specialty entertainer. If your event is multiple days, such as a county/state fair, a capable single act musical entertainer can save you thousands of dollars.
