Our band is currently lit by a couple of patio lights. We're starting to get a few more gigs, so its time to start investing in the "show".
I'll probably be buying one piece at a time as the gig money comes in, so maybe $200-300 each purchase.
What do I buy first? Keeping in mind we have nothing.
I'm thinking 2 RGBA SlimPar64 ($199 in Oz) as the first purchase for front lighting so peolpe can actually see us, sitting on top of FOH speakers pointing down to the band. That's where our patio lights sit at the moment.
Would this be the best way to start, or a 4bar/4bar Flex for a similar price ($499 in OZ)? Not looking for nightclub light shows, just something that makes us look a bit more fair dinkum as a band.
We're a 3 peice rock covers band playing small, move the tables before you start, type of gigs.
