There is a limited amount of storage space. You may end up storing empty cases in your vehicle. Equipment sharing may be required.

The live room, although quite small, sounds great. We rarely send anything other than vocals, kick drum any direct lines through the system.

Sound check: Due to space limitations, we provide a sound check to openers and line check other acts before their set. In rare cases we may check headliners.

For touring engineers: Persons operating The Cave’s equipment must be respectful of its limitations, and comply with the verbal input of the house engineer. Our house engineer may remove any visiting engineer if deemed necessary to protect our equipment. Bands will be billed for damaged equipment in the appropriate circumstances.

Bands are responsible for any damage but not limited to equipment including: microphones, stands, monitors, sound boards.
