LD Manny Newman and #CHAUVETDJ Light Up Electron at Brooklyn Bowl

LD Manny Newman and CHAUVET DJ Light Up Electron at Brooklyn Bowl

Brookly Bowl 3_AndrewBlacksteinThere are few really hot nightspots that pull together so many diverse elements as New York’s Brooklyn Bowl. After all, how many structures combine some edgy urban architectural elements with a real-live bowling alley? Or serve up a gourmet menu of hipster-meets-kosher food from a famed restaurant (New York’s Blue Ribbon)? All this while featuring an eclectic mix of music from urban to jam. The 20,000-square-foot venue was a perfectly appropriate site for an unforgettable concert by Electron, the heavy hitting four-piece band formed by Disco Biscuits bass player Marc Brownstein that is making major waves in the Big Apple and beyond.

Lighting designer Manny Newman drew on the brawny power of Intimidator Spot LED 250 moving fixtures from CHAUVET DJ to provide a monster light show for the band’s recent performance at the Brooklyn Bowl. “Looking at the band, the venue, the crowd and the tradition, it’s an exciting night,” said the LD. “You don’t want to bring a meek lightshow to something like this. I wanted to make a power statement without being overpowering or blinding the band.”

Brookly Bowl 4_AndrewBlacksteinManny accomplished this goal in eye-popping fashion using the Intimidators and a collection of other CHAUVET DJ fixtures. He positioned three T-bars upstage and flew two Intimidator Spot LED 250s and one MegaStrobe FX12 on each. “Working with the FX12s, the Intimidators bring the intensity level way up,” he said “I almost always have the FX12 play a huge role in my shows, because they really help me achieve a great blinding effect when a band peaks. Plus, the 6-cell pixel control of this fixture allows me to get some really cool effects.”

Brooklyn Bowl 1_AndrewBlacksteinFor side lighting, Manny called on the CHAUVET DJ SlimPAR 56, a wash light powered by 108 red, green and blue LEDs, and counted on a Hurricane Haze 2D hazer for atmospherics. “I like the color and coverage I get from the SlimPARs,” he said. “The SlimPAR 56s are great as a side wash, because they will not blind the band, but at the same time the give me a nice solid wash.”

The compact CHAUVET DJ fixtures were easy to set up and take down, yet at the same time they provided the light cannon punch that the band and the venue called for. “I wanted to create a big look on stage for this concert,” said Manny. “That’s what everyone expected and deserved, and the Chauvet fixtures helped me deliver.”

#CHAUVETDJ Intimidator Rocks With Grateful Dead Legend Bill Kreutzmann

CHAUVET DJ Intimidator Rocks With Grateful Dead Legend Bill Kreutzmann

Chauvet_Billy & the Kids2A founding member of the Grateful Dead along with Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, drummer Bill Kreutzmann is still going strong after playing in all of the 2,300 live performances the iconic band made during its lifespan Kreutzmann showed a large appreciative crowd that he hasn’t missed a beat when he performed at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC with his red hot band Billy and the Kids.

Keeping pace with the legendary drummer and his cohorts was a dynamic collection of fixtures from CHAUVET DJ. Lighting designer Manny Newman used four Intimidator Spot LED 350 moving fixtures, along with a collection of Rogue R1 Spots from CHAUVET DJ’s sister company CHAUVET Professional, to accent the band’s power-driving stage performance.

Chauvet_Billy & the Kids1The intense output of the Intimidator fixtures and crisp gobos worked well against the Rogue’s bright output. Other CHAUVET DJ products in the rig included the Intimidator Spot LED 250 moving head. Six of these of these Intimidators were positioned on top of upstage cases to sidelight the performers and cover a large area of the audience.

Also colorizing the stage were 14 SlimPAR 56 RGB units from CHAUVET DJ. The LD used eight of these par-style fixtures mounted on stands as side washes, and positioned six more on crank truss to serve as back washes. For audience blinders, he used CHAUVET DJ MegaStrobe FX12 LED strobe lights.

Chauvet_Billy & the Kids3“We were all extremely happy with how this show turned out,” said Manny. “I have always used Chauvet – the fixtures are very reliable. They’re very affordable, but at the same time their brightness and quality stands up to big house light rigs.”

The Chauvet DJ Wash FX make a great dance floor wash effect but it makes an even better Lighting Design Wash light. The huge beam spread and clean color mixing gives the ceiling or walls a beautiful wash effect. This has to be one of the most diverse fixtures for it being so simple. DJ Jer Shop Time shows how the Wash FX creates a beautiful ambiance in the ceiling of a wedding.
