Technical Requirements

Kevin needs two full hours before a scheduled performance to set up his concert-like program. He needs full access to the performance space, electric outlets, and will bring all the equipment he needs. He requests a performance space that can be made very dark so he can provide the best interactive/participatory student experience. He will use a wireless mic so he can stroll through the student audience during his performance and engage more participants. Special Note: Kevin brings years of experience performing hundreds of youth and school shows with an exciting and upbeat program delivery that is carefully planned to accommodate a variety of student populations and school needs. Students and staff enjoy his state-of-the-art equipment including lights, video, and a BOSE PA system. This system enables him to give a concert-like experience with a high-quality, full sound but without the harshness of traditional systems. He performs for a variety of schools which includes populations of students exclusively with special needs without issue. He does not use strobe lights or lasers. If a school has questions or concerns about suitability of his programs for students with Sensory Processing issues, contact the YA Office for more information on how Kevin can meet these school needs.
