Instead of setting up rear truss (due to space constraints, it wasn't possible), I tried doing uplighting at two different shows. First was a small blues band at a bar, and the other was a two-day church revival in a tent. Neither venue really was set up to put a rear truss up without making things complicated and awkward. I gave it a go with uplights, and had some pretty decent results. The blues band, I used 2 Fab5's at the front on a very slow fade for front lighting, and used 6 Fab5's around the rear for uplighting. The revival, I used 8 Fab5's on two T-bars for front lighting, and 6 across the rear of the stage. During the day it didn't make a big difference but when the sun set a bit, it did make a nice effect. Not blinding the crowd but enough to add to the musical effect.
