This lighting plan is provided as a guide to the lighting company to provide our show with a
lighting system of reasonable size and quality. The stage will have 5 primary fixed focus areas:
DSC – Mark / Guitar and Vocal. USC riser _ Drums and Vocal. SR riser – Keyboards
and Vocal. SR of Center - Bass and Vocal. SL Riser Mark / Keyboard, percussion,
and Vocal.
LD Services Required: Produce a lighting plan that meets descriptive criteria and
then implement the plan (focus and cue the lighting for the show.
LIGHTING SYSTEM- Flexible according to the venue and capacity.
Two forty foot truss’ suspended lightening system with 90-120K of lighting. Minimum 24
Channel Lighting Console.DOWNSTAGE TRUSS:Thirty 1000-watt medium par 64’s.
Ten 1000- watt Lekos on downstage truss for 5 no-color specials. Two 9-light Mole-fay units for
audience lighting.UPSTAGE TRUSS:Sixty 1000-watt Narrow par 64’s.
Four 1000-watt ACL’s.
Two 1000-watt ACL’s placed upstage center behind drum riser.A 15 feet x 40 feet upstage backdrop preferably black or white.If White drop: sufficient instruments to wash color and /or provide
pattern projection on rear drop.
If you are using LED, the quantity of fixtures needed to provide the color flexibility required may
be reduced . We realize this is “non-specific” but, here is where the L.D. Can be creative.
2- 1.2K-long-throw spotlights with four color correction gels each. The spot positions should be
at 45 degree angle above stage level.
Spotlights are to be in good condition with light output that is balanced and uniform. Spotlights
should be 60-140 feet from front of stage with at least one centered on main stage.
Mark moves quickly across the mid and downstage areas during the course of the show as well as
performing at the USL keyboard position. While he is moving,use both spots – one in a color and
the other in white to provide some contrast. Please instruct the spot operators to use their faders
when bring their light up and fading off. During “American Band” and “Shining On” lead vocals
will be shared by another musician in the band and spots will need to be split. We will discuss this
during prior to sound check.
A belt-pack and headset communication system will be required at the following
locations:Lighting Console, Spotlight positions, House Audio and Monitor console.
2 Lighting Technicians to assist with lighting focus and discuss programming for Artist’s
performance.(lighting should be up and running prior to Artist load-in)
1 EXPERIENCED Lighting console operator to program for artist performance.
AT SHOW CALL: 1 EXPERIENCED Lighting console operator.2 EXPERIENCED follow-spot
operators.1 Lighting system Technician.
Please note the following:• Lamp types may be altered to suit the rigging height (lower height
may need wide beam lamps in the front truss).• The gel colors may be slighty different to suit the
brand/inventory you have in stock. Gel should be clean and not faded.
• Rigging should be done by ESTA certified staff or responsible rigging professional.• Lighting
company is to be fully insured.
The most important issue to our show is the quality of people you provide. The level of experience
and positive attitude of your show electrician and light director / board operator is to be of the
highest possible caliber.We request that the lighting director be familiar with Mark Farner’s music
for cueing the spots and board operation. We want lighting to accent the music dynamics but no
too much “bump and flash”.
Blackouts with a quick restore is preferred at the end of each song.Use a Bastard Amber tint in the
follow spots at all times instead of white when using Arc Lamps.
Most importantly: use the dimmers.Full on at all times does not accent the dynamics of the show
as much as riding the faders to complement the “feel” of the music...Thank you. Please contact us
with any questions or concerns.
