Heres one for the older gentleman on CB.
Our school is planning a "blast from the past" battle of the bands to be held in our auditorium. It will include student and local bands. They asked me to do lights and sound. A major mandate is keeping everything as vintage looking and sounding as possible. I actually happen to have several older type bass bins and horns as well as some older crown amps so I can definitely get the sound right, but im a little stuck on lighting. From what I can see of old concert videos rock lighting rigs primarily consisted of par cans. It also looks like follow spots were used extensively. Can anybody elaborate on what older lighting rigs consisted off and how I might be able to replicate them? I do have a decent budget available to rent lights rigging cable ect. Yay, I can finally use the SOCA breakouts that we have but never touch!
The video I was looking at was AC/DC rock and roll ****ation, that look is really what were trying to achieve, not something huge and over the top.
