    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.
