Minimum stage dimensions should be: 2 metres x 3.5 metres x 0.50 high raised platform/stage (or higher if the audience is over 400).
If a band performance is scheduled to take place they will have to be set up behind while Jay Jay performs.
A dance floor in front of the performance area is not advised as it will lose the intimacy between
the person on stage and the audience (if a dance floor is present throughout the night,
have this to the side of the stage or in a different part of the room).
Easy access from the audience onto the stage is absolutely necessary. Please provide stairs that
lead directly into the audience preferably from the side of the stage or the front of the stage.
It is preferable that distance from the front of the stage to the audience is not to be more than
two metres to make sure there is close engagement for the show.
No tables should be set to the side of the stage as this will lose the engagement
with the audience throughout the performance.
If there is a band present throughout the night, please allow ample room for
Jay Jay to set his show up prior to his performance.

before guests arrive at the venue.

USB will be provided before showtime or through an email prior to the show.
Music must be played through external speakers and not through the venue system as this sound is really poor.
Adequate stage wash of the entire stage so that you can see the performer and other people is essential.

Jay Jay can interact with the audience as and when required.
