1. Favorite CHAUVET® light/product and why:
I have a favorite wash light, moving yoke and effect light. In my opinion, the COLORado 2 IP is one of the top LED PAR style wash lights in the entertainment scene. It has powerful color temperature presets and lux. The best moving yoke in the USA market is the Q-Spot 560-LED. It is powered by three 60-watt LEDs which give a 1,929 @ 5m lux. The best light for impressing customers is the Trident LED effect light. The 7-watt tri-colored LEDs give me a wide coverage angle.
2. Favorite CHAUVET® YouTube video:
My favorite CHAUVET YouTube video is the “Create Your Own Gobo for CHAUVET® Gobo Zoom LED” video. It’s an easy and fast way to fulfill special requests from clients at weddings and corporate fuctions where customized projections are a plus.
3. Favorite DJ and why?:
My favorite colleague is Armin van Buuren because he owns his business and manages one of the most important and profitable record agencies in the world. When you review international dance music charts, it’s not a coincidence that an Armada Music artist is in the top 10.
4. Favorite event/nightclub with lights:
Right now, my favorite event setup is the design created for the event covered in “CHAUVET® Mingles with New Faces of Hollywood“. It’s great how technology and an event can help the people of Haiti.
5. Favorite tip for new CHAUVET® DJs:
Pay attention. Read and stay updated. Make sure you understand the content. A lot of DJs only care the cost of lighting gear and very few DJs review the specs. If you operate that way, you can’t do a real cost versus benefits analysis.
6. Complete this sentence:
A show without lights is like a Christmas tree without lights.
