Band Profile: The Johnsons

Posted on February 24, 2012 by webmaster

The Johnsons is a party-rock cover band from Milwaukee, Wis., performing music from the ‘80s, ‘90s and 2000s, at private parties, venues and festivals. CHAUVET® asked Matteo Norante, drummer and vocalist for the band, four questions:

1. How did you get into this field? 
Not by choice. The rest of the band was broke and/or unwilling to take the plunge and to make a lighting investment, so I had to jump in.

2. What do you think is the next big thing in the lighting industry?
Hopefully chocolate-chili flavored lighting effects.

3. Do you have a favorite fixture (and why)?
So far my favorite fixture has been the Q-Spot 260-LED, because of its incredible value. We also really enjoy the 4BAR Tri wash light, the 6SPOT color-changer system and the Obey 70 controller we bought.

4. Complete this thought:
A show without light is like…an after-hours party without a stick pony.
