What’s an input list?

An input list is a list of how many outputs you have for the band, the required mixer inputs, and the specifics involved. You need to include the outputs for everything you do that your sound tech will need to patch. This is also the place where you should indicate what type of stand mics you need to use. For example, if your guitarist sings background vocals and needs a boom stand to make sure the mic can be placed properly, that information should be included here.
