It won’t sound like shit
For small events (for example, the area outside of Portland City Hall) I can provide and operate a battery-powered sound system, involving a speaker on a speaker stand, a microphone on a microphone stand, and the option of plugging in a musical instrument or electronic device. So it’s optimal for solo performers or speakers.
$100 is my basic fee for events in Portland up to 2 hours in length. Outside of Portland, add $1 per mile. I offer steep discounts to activist groups, and I can bring my guitar and sing if requested, for events that call for obscure songs about progressive causes or original children’s songs.
