An Approach to Lighting and a Little Bragging

On Friday, April 21, three chapters of Delta Sigma Phi met at the M Grand Hotel for their fraternity formal. The room was modest in size as was their number (about 120). They paid a little extra for a well-conceived light show and this simple combination of effects was provided:

4 Chauvet Color Splash Jr. LED Par Cans to provide a wash of color on the dance floor
2 Martin Mania DC1s to wash the side walls (changing colors and moving textures)
2 Martin SCX 500s set to "plug and play" hanging from the same tree as the LEDs to provide a an "endless," unpredictable variety of gobos and colors on top of the DC1-created effect and throughout the rest of the room.

Simple, small, BUT effective, as revealed in this little letter:

Dear Mr. Green:

Thank you so much for helping us plan our Formal. I appreciate your hard work that made our party such a success. Everyone had the most wonderful time. They thought the music was very up-to-date and made getting on the dance floor effortless. THEY WERE VERY IMPRESSED BY THE LIGHT SHOWS. THIS WAS A NEW FEATURE THAT EVERYONE LOVED AND HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE. We have never had a DJ that was so professional and had such sophisticated equipment. Again, thank you for helping me to have the best Formal that our Fraternity has seen in years.
