POWER

There is a 200 amp 2 phase service available for lights, and a 100 amp for sound. Please note that there is NO 3 phase power at Bimbo’s.

STAGE

The stage at Bimbo’s is 29 feet deep and 23 feet wide at it’s widest. Please note that while the stage is 3 different levels this almost always eliminates the need for additional risers. There is no way to alter the stage from the current configuration, and while it may appear problematic at first glance we’ve successfully dealt with this somewhat unorthodox stage on hundreds of shows.

There is also a small side stage, located stage right of the main stage, that is sometimes used for opening acts. This varies from show to show. Please consult us about the details of your show.

SOUND

There is a 105db limit as measured from the FOH position. This limit includes any transients or spikes. We have enacted this limit for a couple of reasons: The comfort of our guests and staff, regardless of the genre. Our neighbors; we are located in a residential area and when shows are run at 105db or lower we don’t receive any complaints from them or the police on their behalf. This limit is non-negotiable.

The in house system is a Nexo Alpha series rig. The FOH position is located just off center, 50 feet from the downstage edge of the stage. We do not move our FOH console. There is room for two 6 space FOH racks if you carry one. NOTE: The Midas inserts are seperate send / return, TRS style. Monitors are mixed from stage left.
