Hi All

I am organising an outdoor event with a live band. They will be using 2 X
400W amps + lights. A local hire company *thinks* a 5 KVA generator with a
spare fuel can will be OK for about 4 hours of music.

I'm lost already, so I though I'd check here - hoping it's the correct NG.

Thanks in advance for any info.

If there are any motors or refrigeration compressors, they have quite a
start up surge. If you had a list of equipment I could tell better. I guess
you are figuring about 4000 watts for the lights??? Add 25% extra if you
have motors.
