Stage Plot and Tech Downloads

The Crime Scene always travels light (small/light amps + standard minimal drum kit) and uses a self-contained in-ear monitor system/rack, so set-up and tear-down is a breeze, stage volume is low, and the band takes care of the monitor mix (no stage monitors!). Super fast, super simple. The in-ear rack has tails (snakes provided by the band) and feeds the front-of-house 8 clean mic signals, so the FOH engineer is free to mix the room. Contact Paul with any questions: pshellooe(at) and/or 303-931-3352.

The band is also happy to use traditional stage monitors and use backline gear when shows require it. Fly gigs are also great -- everyone in the band has travel-ready gear.
