Four sound tech: venue costs will include sound engineers- whats he bringing his own for? If you're playing to an average of 600-700 people, four people is an expense you can ill afford.
No 4 tour crew in total - Sound tech, backline tech, video/light tech and his tour manager who doubles as the merch guy
From what I have seen most bands at Fish's level tour with their own soundie, (and given the erm, variability of house sound guys, I can kind of see why )
New album 'Fantasy Bridge' available now!
