(mods - wasn't sure where to put this...) The club we played at this weekend has a decent house light system. Whole set of effects lights for the room and some cans for the stage. I was nominated to be the light operator. Kinda fun!!! Some things that were fun to experiment with and learn: 1) Learning how / when to do scenes, chases, blackouts onstage. 2) Manipulating the effects lighting for the room and dance floor 3) How the lasers, vertigos, zephyrs, and strobes change the mood of the room I dont know a whole lot about stage and effect lights, but having fun learning . not to mention the challenge of switching things on and off while playing bass and singing backup!!! Anyone else do lights? Anyone know a good reference for information on the different types of stage lighting, effects, what the different effects are called, etc? Be interesting to learn about the differences in effects, can sizing for throw, can positioning, making the dance floor exciting, etc. etc.
