WE HAVE ALL OF THE EQUIPMENT! Uptown has the unique ability to put on a variety of performances, from micing small scale acoustic bands, to working with the popular 90s band Vertical Horizon, to hosting a battle of the bands. We have a sound board with a total of 24 inputs and 4 monitor mixes and plenty of quarter inch and xlr cables of various lengths. We also have a couple different types of vocal mics, various instrumental mics, and direct input boxes. The only equipment performers need to bring are their instruments and any special equipment they might have, such as specialized microphones or foot pedals to adjust their sound. There's no need to bring amps, though they work well as monitors that you can set for yourself if you would like to bring them.
