Volunteer Database Manager Assistant

Current: Seth Seeger

Sound Engineer

Volunteer Sound Engineers run mixing boards, adjust microphones and cables, and make sure the performers start and stop on time, effectively filling the role of both engineer and traditional stage manager.

Sound Engineers also keep the aisles and exits clear, the doors closed, take notes on approximately how many empty chairs there are, changes in chair setup, anything & everything that can help us do better next year. Sound Engineers report to the Crew Chief on duty.

There are Sound Engineers assigned to work concerts and dances in Marlborough, Princess, Ballroom AB, and the Seminar Room.

We use volunteer Sound Engineers at all levels, from beginners who have just taken their first Sound Workshop to experienced engineers comfortable with a 24 channel digital board and external processors.

Sound Engineers work standard shifts of 2-4 hours, with a total of 6 hours getting them into the entire Festival for free, though many engineers choose to work more hours. A single 2 hour shift will get you into one Festival Session for free, rather than to the entire Festival.

Volunteer sound engineers mostly work solo, but may be paired with a second engineer, depending on the complexity of the performances in their assigned room and the skill/experience of the engineer.

Sound Engineers can sometimes leave the room briefly during their shifts, but we prefer they do not.

Stage Hand

Stage Hands assist the professional engineers in the Dance Halls and the Seminar Room. Some of our Stage Hands have little to no training and are learning on the job; some have done this for years and could almost work blindfolded. While previous experience is not necessarily required, the ability to take direction, to remain calm, and to work well with people, is essential.

The job can include:

– helping performers on & off stage
– moving chairs and music stands off & on stage
– safety check
– For large bands,
--(a) warning the band before that a quick exit would be appreciated (i.e. music cases off stage if possible, etc);
--(b) making sure that music stands & chairs are ready for quick handling;
--(c) enlisting one or two of the large band members or someone else to keep the hordes OFF STAGE until invited on;
--(d) handing out tune books [Festival Orchestra];
--(e) complimenting the band members as you're pushing them off stage;
--(f) working with contract sound as directed.

– assisting the sound engineers. This may include any of the following:
--(a) "taking the numbers" - writing down the mic numbers, reading them back
--(b) move mic stands on & off stage
--(c) coiling up mic cords (rare)
--(d) handing up cords to an engineer on the back of the stage (sometimes)
--(e) setting up mics [very rare]
--(f) watching the clock and giving the time warnings to the caller on stage - (10 minutes, 5 minutes, 2 minutes, off)

Stage Hands report to the Engineer in their assigned room/hall. Stage Hands generally work an entire NEFFA session in the same hall. This assignment works great for people who love to dance, as you usually have time to do so after the band is setup.

Hours worked: during the Festival
Number of volunteers needed: Many
Updated: 12/07/2023


Transporters move borrowed sound equipment in the Boston metro area to/from the Festival. Ideally, you should be available both before and after the Festival, able to keep track of some details of the equipment which won't be captured in the emails to the lender, such as what item was in which container. Ability to help with sound equipment setup on Friday is a plus!

Hours worked: 6 for full ticket, part-time and split before and after Festival
Number of volunteers needed: 3-6
Updated: 2/19/2023

Sound Floater

Sound Floaters assist the Crew Chiefs in a variety of ways, filling in for missing sound volunteers, assisting with changeovers that need extra hands, and handling changeovers where an engineer isn’t needed for the entire workshop, but one has to hand out and check the wireless mic for the workshop leader. Sound floaters may also mentor less experienced sound engineers.

For 2024, they will also act as SSST for Sterling, the self-service sound system in the hotel.

Floaters are on-call, carry a cell phone, and can be contacted by the Crew Chief or other members of the Sound Committee, or by a volunteer engineer who has been unable to reach their Crew Chief.

Because Floaters may need to fill in for any sound volunteer, the role needs to be filled by an experienced, skilled engineer.

Crew Chief and Floater cell phone numbers are in the Sound Books, along with who’s on during each shift.

Floaters may end up having more independent responsibilities than in previous years to assist the Crew Chiefs to cover a wider area. The Sound Committee will be in touch with Floaters in advance with any new procedures.

Reports to: the Crew Chief on the same shift.
Hours worked: 6+, generally a NEFFA sessions
Number of volunteers needed: 4-8
Updated: 12/07/23

Self-Service System Tender

Several rooms have "Self-Serve" sound systems -- no engineers are assigned, and the leaders in those rooms are expected to handle their own needs. These "self service" rooms exist in the Hotel and in the Tent outside. In 2024, only the tent needs a SSST.

No self-service room needs a full-time engineer present throughout any workshop.

However, some workshop instructors aren’t sufficiently familiar with sound systems, and sometimes people move things, or turn them off. The System Tender checks the Self-Serve rooms each time a new workshop starts (roughly once an hour), and at the beginning of the day, to make sure that the leader is comfortable and able to work, and if appropriate, that all the equipment is working.

Some rooms will have only the following:
-- 1 Bose L1 "stick" speaker
-- 1 small mixer
-- 1 wireless headset mic
-- 1 wireless handheld mic
-- 1 wired handheld mic (a backup)
-- 1 iPod/laptop/MP3 player cable
-- spare batteries
-- an instruction sheet

If a room has a full sound setup, when used "self service" style it will be used in a simplified manner.

The morning check for all rooms should include
-- Is the system turned on?
-- Are both wireless mics in standby mode and do both have good batteries?
-- Are all cables still patched correctly?
-- Is the instruction sheet still there?
-- Is the iPod cable still there and labeled?
-- Is anything else mentioned in the instruction sheet as it should be?

At the beginning of each workshop during your shift, make sure that:

--the instructor has found the gear they need
--that it's working

If everything looks and sounds copacetic, you needn't stay for more than a minute per room.

In the small rooms, the mixer will be clearly labeled as to which control does what.

Batteries for the wireless mics should be checked first thing in the morning and again every 4 hours or so. The mics, depending on which ones we get, may or may not have a battery charge indicator; if they do, the batteries should be replaced if there are less than 2 bars when you go on duty.

If the teacher is comfortable with the equipment (as they frequently are), all the Self Service Tender needs to do is poke their head into the room, see that they're not needed, and move on. Usually the Self Service Tender is actually working roughly half the time, able to catch a dance or a bit of a concert in between workshops even while on duty.

Reports to: Crew Chief
Hours worked: 4+, but given the free time between checks, a full NEFFA session is preferred.
Number of volunteers needed: 4-8
Updated: 12/07/23

Crew Chief

Crew Chiefs, in addition to the traditional runtime Crew Chief responsibilities, are also encouraged to participate in the setup and strike.

There are 4-6 Crew Chiefs. Their primary job is to supervise and support the Sound Engineers in the volunteer-run Halls, handling any unforeseen situations, troubleshooting equipment problems, assisting volunteer engineers who find themselves in over their heads, sitting in for missing volunteers, etc. Crew Chiefs also keep tabs on the Self Service System Tenders to make sure they show up for their shifts and to answer any questions they may have. Floaters report to the Crew Chiefs and extend their reach.

During their shifts the Crew Chiefs usually poke their heads into each venue once during each new Sound Engineers' shifts, paying special attention to shifts that are staffed by inexperienced or new Sound Engineers, and decide if those will need additional support throughout their shifts.

Crew Chiefs are also responsible for checking the chair setups in each room at least once during their shift/session to make sure that the aisles and exits are kept clear (this is a continual problem, as audience members *will* move the chairs so as to block the aisles).

Crew Chiefs sign up to work for a full Festival Session each, roughly 6 hours. They should arrive 15-30 minutes before the Festival starts each day to confirm that all rooms are ready to go, and plan to stay 5-10 minutes after the Festival closes each day to confirm that systems have been turned off and are ready for the next morning. One or two of the Crew Chiefs may help out during setup, and one or two during strike.

Being Crew Chief is good preparation for becoming Volunteer Sound Manager, Assistant Sound Committee Chair, or Chair...but does not imply a commitment to do so.

Reports to: Volunteer Sound Manager.
Hours worked: 6+ hours, roughly a NEFFA session
Number of volunteers needed: 4-6

Media Wrangler

Media Wranglers staff the Dance Performer check-in tables outside the Dance Performance space. Each dance performance group checks in and hands to the Media Wrangler two sets of CDs, a thumb drive, or possibly an iPod/iPhone with music tracks loaded, for each dance slot they have been assigned. The Media Wrangler does a brief interview with the group's dance captain or choreographer, to find out any special last-minute info or changes to the info-forms the dance captain had filled out previously, such as special sound cues, etc., and puts this info down on the Dance Performance forms. Media Wranglers also quickly check the media to make sure the music is really there. Media Wranglers have equipment at the table for this, and a copier for making copies for all the folders. Media Wranglers also run the updated forms and media backstage to the Playback Engineer, Stage Manager, and the house sound desk continuously. This is a fast-paced, exciting volunteer job.

Lighting Setup/Takedown


The High School Auditorium Stage theatrical lighting usually requires four to six volunteers for most of the afternoon on Friday to set up, typically starting at 1:00, ending by 6:00. There is usually no programming in the HS Auditorium Friday night so there's not much pressure.

Typically it takes 2 people one hour on Sunday for Strike. Several jobs require a good head for heights (working on ladders or up on the catwalk). A minimum two hour commitment is required. The Lighting Setup and Strike Crew report to the Lighting Director (Clyde Tyndale).

Curtains Setup/Takedown

Various rooms in the Hotel and Trade Center will get stretches of acoustic curtains. Some spaces may also get visual curtains. All curtains need to be hung before the festival and taken down after the Festival.

Crews consist of 4-6 people. The curtains hang on poles and floor-mounted stands, so not all members of the team need to work on ladders and at heights, though sometimes doing so can simplify things.

You must be willing to work the full duration of setup and/or strike (roughly 3-6 hours Friday for setup and 2-4 hours Sunday evening for strike). The curtains are heavy, the poles are heavy, and while it is not necessary to be a weightlifter or over 6' tall to do this job, it is necessary to be fit and in good shape. If there are enough people and team leaders then the time commitment will be shorter, as curtains can be set up in parallel.

Reports to: Curtain Team Leader
Hours worked: 4-10+ hours, split before and after the Festival
Number of volunteers needed: 3-6
Updated: 2/17/2023

Sound Setup/Takedown

The Sound Setup and Strike Crews load the gear into the various volunteer-run rooms, set it up, test it, label it, and generally get it ready for the sound engineers, and pack it away again at the end of the Festival.

Sound setup takes place Thursday and Friday (up to the beginning of the Festival), and if necessary on Friday evening (during the Festival). Sound strike begins on Sunday as Festival rooms close, and most of it is completed within 2-3 hours.

A minimum of two-hour shifts are required. Experience is required for setting up the sound equipment. Must have some knowledge of sound systems and the ability to read a system diagram. There is usually room for one or two inexperienced people to help with setup and strike.

Reports to: Sound logistics coordinator
Hours worked: 2+ hours
Number of volunteers needed: 4-8
Festival Admission: yes, 6 hours for a full Festival pass, less than that is split across sessions.
Updated: 12/07/23

Playback Engineer

The job consists of cuing up music for dance performances during the Dance Performance Blocks. Must be familiar with basic sound equipment and be cool and level headed. Please check in sometime before your shift to be introduced to the sound equipment you will be working with.

Festival Admission: yes, 4 hours for a full Festival pass, less than that is split across sessions.
Updated: 2/17/2023

Dance Performance (DP) Stage Manager

The Dance Performance (DP) Stage Manager role is the same as that of a standard theatrical stage manager, "calling the show", using a Clearcom or cell-app intercom to direct Sound, Music, MC, and dancers when to perform their various tasks.

They report to the Dance Performance chair, and everyone else reports to them, though not necessarily directly. Direct reports include Assistant Stage Managers, FOH Engineer, Stage Engineer, Playback Engineer (formerly "DJ"), Lighting Director, MC, and Chief Media Wrangler. Indirect reports include any Stage Hands (seldom used), and Media Wranglers.

DP Stage Manager requires prior experience as a Stage Manager in a theatrical setting, or training under a Stage Manager at NEFFA, and experience at NEFFA.

In the event of an emergency situation arising, the Stage Manager and/or Auditorium Manager, possibly with input from the Dance Performance Chair, would decide what to do and ask the MC to make the appropriate announcement. If time is of the essence and/or there is confusion about who to consult or where they are, the Stage Manager will make the decision, as that's the only one of these three people who is guaranteed to be present during all DP Blocks.

Updated: 2/19/2023

Dance Performance (DP) Assistant Stage Manager

Dance Performance Assistant Stage Managers run around during Dance Performances collecting and herding dance troupes from the hallway, the Green Room, the Band Room, and onto the stage or into the Green Room, Band Room, etc.

They report to and assist the Dance Performance Stage Manager and work with the Media Wranglers. They usually use a wireless intercom to stay in touch with the Dance Performance Stage Manager.

This can be good training to become Dance Performance Stage Manager.
