CHAUVET® Burns Bright at Houston Rodeo

May 21, 2012

HOUSTON, Texas - The Houston Livestock Rodeo World Championship Bar-B-Que Contest featured some of the best food Texas has to offer, talented rodeo competitors and 47 CHAUVET® fixtures.

Lighting technician Pablo Elizondo of DJ Centro teamed with Gerson Martinez of Rodeo Disco Houston to design a rig for the 12-by-24 foot entertainment stage.  The event took place in a tent aglow with six COLORstrip™ Mini and four COLORdash™ Batten wash lights. To add depth and enhance the performance space, the team setup a rectangular 12-by-28 foot truss design warmed with 10 SlimPAR™ 64 wash lights. Two Q-Wash™ 260-LED and eight Intimidator™ Spot LED 350 moving heads projected solid beams effects on the stage and dance floor. Two Legend™ 4500 moving heads brightly washed the front of the stage while eight COLORband™ Tri linear fixtures washed the backdrop which featured a MotionDrape™ LED. A Hurricane™ 1800 Flex fog machine completed the design and enhanced the lighting effects while a Hurricane™ 1300 fog machine provided “smoke” to a custom-built barbecue pit.

“These LED fixtures met our expectations and gave an awesome performance,” Elizondo said.  “We were thrilled to receive compliments from the crowd and felt we accomplished our production goal.”
