Yellowcard LD Cody James Gets Support from Chauvet Professional

E-mail Print PDF

PROVIDENCE, RI – The platinum recording group Yellowcard refuses to be pigeonholed. That’s not surprising from a band that was featured in a compilation called “Punk Goes Acoustic.” Audiences may love Yellowcard’s meshing musical performances -- but some flexible fixtures in the hands of a skilled LD are required to create a lightshow that keeps pace with the group’s eclectic musical mix. The Legend 230SR Beam and Legend 412 moving heads from Chauvet Professional provided this flexibility, while LD Cody James of JDI Productions furnished the skill to create just such a lightshow for the band’s sold out performance at the iconic Lupos Heartbreak Hotel concert hall.

Elisa Soars Somewhere Between Dreams And Reality With Clay Paky

E-mail Print PDF

ITALY - As part of an elaborate lighting design that included breakaway LED panels, LD Mamo Pozzoli used a variety of Clay Paky fixtures for singer Elisa's recent tour. "In this mix of creativity and technology, the lights serve to provide order. I use them in a rigid geometric way that is completely functional to the rest of the scene. But this does not mean their role is belittled," said Pozzoli. "On the contrary, precisely owing to their essential function in the overall set-up, I immediately asked for some of the most reliable lights I know: Clay Paky Alpha Beam 700s, Clay Paky Alpha Wash 700s and Sharpys.”
