  1. Lighting Your Event for High Impact

    If you want your event to be more than just people in a hotel conference room, event lighting can add that extra punch! Modern LED lights are easy for non-technical people to set up. Those same easy-to-use lights are also popular with DJs, churches, and parties.

    LED lighting can mix red, green, and blue light to make custom colors.

    For corporate events, we can use LED lighting and dial in colors to match branding and logos. This helps make event spaces seem more welcoming and draws the eye, as well. Using colors as accent lights helps tie the room together, and can make the branding materials feel much larger than they actually are.  The light fixtures blend red, green and blue light to make custom colors easy, and the lights are cool to the touch, so they’re safe to use on the floor or in tight spaces.  Our most popular lights for this are the Chauvet 4-Bar Minis and the American DJ Mega Go Bar lights.

    For larger events in and around Milwaukee, we suggest you hire one of our lighting professionals to help with the design and setup of the lighting system.  For smaller events, you may be able to rent the lights and set them up yourself.  This is a great option for office holiday parties, kids’ parties, and small sales events.  We can go over the equipment with you when you pick it up, so you can set it up quickly and get great lighting effects.

    For parties, a changing lighting effect can add energy to the room.  If you want to keep it simple, our Dance Club Light Kit is just $80/day and is really popular for first-time renters. Using the sound-active mode built into many of our rental lights is a great way to simply and easily make the lighting respond to the music.  For more advanced lighting control, we suggest adding a DMX controller for DJs to your lighting.  This will allow you to set “scenes” and “chases,” letting you customize your light show.  You’ll need to run special DMX cables, or you can make setup a little easier with our wireless DMX transmitter/receivers.

    If you’re lighting a small staged event, like a play or church performance, you may want to use lights in a different way, letting you light different scenes and control levels and blackouts.  We offer a basic DMX controller that allows you to set your lighting in advance and run the show easily, without much training.

    If you’re looking for new ways to make your event look great, give us a call at (414) 939-3653 and we can help you make your event lighting plan.  We’re more than happy to go over your options, whether your event is for 12 people or 12,000.
