in my 17 years doing this, I will be performing at my first deaf wedding in May. Just to clarify, the only deaf people at the wedding will be about 3/4 of the bridal party including the bride. So I am more there for the entertainment factor for their guests, but the groom did confirm that he and she will be doing plenty of dances together including their "1st dance".
I was asking the groom about the logistics of that, and how it all would work ideally. They will have two interpreters on site and they have asked that those two people have dedicated lapel type mics which makes sense.
Here is my question.
This wedding is at a beautiful smaller country club. (sits about 150). The groom mentioned that they do in fact rely on "bass notes" to feel the music to dance and interact with the music like regular hearing people. Sooooo, I normally bring subs to wedding, but I don't get crazy... I keep it to two SBA 760's in most cases, sometimes even just 1. Do I add two more for this event? I normally use 4 at school functions... But 4 could potentially destroy this particular venue if I ran them at high levels. Do I "lean" on the lower frequencies more to benefit the bride and her family? and purposely go out of having balanced sound?
Anyone with experience with this?
