We are having a gig in my singers backyard during a new years party.

I managed to get a bunch of stage accesories.

A blacklight for the drums and a bunch of toher stuff.

but for a backyard gig. is this fog machine strong enough alone?

not to be rude or anything but do you think all that stuff is necessary for your first gig. especially an outside gig.

its way easier to go to a club and tell them you want to play there. you don't have to buy stuff you may only use once. an i don't think a fog machine is necessary.

EDIT: just get a friend to smoke a LOT of marijuana in the corner

it really depends on what you want if you want it to totally obscure you then your prolly not gonna get that with one machine, it also depends on the weather, is it during the day or at night?

also i think its a waste of money for a first gig, get your name out there with your music before you start spending money on stage gimmicks

The black light will be pretty ineffective outdoors.

The fog machine, while its a lot of fun to smoke out your rehearsal space with odorless smoke, is going to be pretty shiesty outdoors. They generally don't produce enough to overcome the winds, unless you have a REALLY top-shelf one...in which case you spent too much money on a smoke machine.
