Touring Services

Kelcema Audio is proud to offer Live Sound Touring Services. Drawing upon our vast inventory of production equipment, we can prepare a great package to support your touring concert or theatre show!

When you are taking your band or theatrical production on the road, you will need sound production just about everywhere you go. You can rent locally, or you can have the reliability of bringing in your own gear. Then, you have a consistent show from night to night!

Our experienced road crew will make sure your production happens time and time again without fault.


Here's an example Tour Package, both Gear List and Pricing. The price you see is a weekly rate-- 3x that amount represents a monthly rate (for gear; personnel costs are still billed on a weekly basis.) So, if you booked our system for, say, a 3-month tour (13 weeks), you'd be paying for 9 weeks of gear rental and 13 weeks of staffing/trucking/ mileage/lodging.

If you hired this system for a 13-week tour, you'd be paying:

GEAR
9 weeks times $18,185.90 per week = $163,673.10.
STAFF
13 weeks times $13,525.00 per week = $175,825.00.

With 4/shows a week, your net cost is just $6,528.81 per show! And that's for the full 24 box VerTec sound system (12 boxes per side) -- a savings of up to $1,400 per show.


Smaller tours can always be arranged as well. Even if your needs are limited to just a couple of "one-off" events, we can set up a package with the same production for both events, transportation between the two locations and all staff needed to manage the audio. Whether your event is in a hotel or other facility, or outdoors, you will find that Kelcema Audio delivers the best value, helping you to have an event that is a fiscal success!
