My band wants to add some lights behind us... these are the ones im talking about :

Work Lamp (http://www.studiolighting.net/images/homedepot_work_light.jpg)

This is the effect we are going for .... A Plea for Purging! (http://rebourne.net/artistphotos/576-aPleaForPurging2.jpg)


Anyway, i am just trying to figure out the best (aka safest and cheapest) way to wire this up. Ideally, we would like a footswitch for the frontman to flip on and off, controlling the lights. However, it would also be fine if hitting a switch/button turns the lights on for a split second, then they turn back off.


I am wondering if I will need any relays or anything. Could i hack up a power strip and add an external switch??
