My band is looking to have our own light show. We just wanna get simple white lights to have on stage. We know what lights we need to buy, but what we don't know is how to run them. We don't want the lights to be on the whole time. We wanna be able to turn them on and off and have them flash. Any ideas on how to run them that wouldn't involve someone running them off stage and would be able to be done by us subtly.
Don't your local venues have their own lights?
What Jack said.
the venue should have its own lights, just ask for what you want beforehand and they should be able to set it up. im in stage lighting at my school, its really not that hard if you know what youre doing
Well most venues DO have lighting but they don't all have the lighting we want. Think Misery Signals. If you haven't seen them live, go to youtube and look up a live video.
