Lighting and Designing Your Band
Lighting and Designing Your Band … As you know, your band is part of your design. Mike and I go to weddings and events quite often. Whether we are on stage ourselves or at the shindig as guests, we get to observe all the gorgeous details. We see pin lights on cakes and centerpieces, up lights around the room, monogram/logo on the dance floor, and so many other spectacular lit details on pedestals. But all too often one major detail is amiss. The musicians are in the dark and sometimes not even on a stage.
Putting your musicians on a stage AND lighting them is imperative. Why? Well, here are a few reasons: Energy, Chemistry and Connection. Being elevated and being able to see the audience and having eye contact with those who are singing along and ready to dance the night away helps your band engage and lure more people to the dance floor. And if they are already on the dance floor, your band is more apt to keep them there if your audience and band can see and feel a connection.
In the grand scheme of total event costs, a little more lighting and a stage are a drop in the bucket.
Here are some staging and lighting vendors we have worked with in the past who have done an amazing job who have put us in the position to connect with all of our audiences: Town and Country, Classic Party Rentals, LBPS Events, The Tent Merchant, Bella Vista, Amber Event Production
