CHAUVET® DJ is proud to be a sponsor of the 2013 ArmDJs (Appalachian Regional Mobile DJs) Conference being held June 17th-19th at the historic General Morgan Inn in Greeneville, Tennessee. CHAUVET® DJ sponsored the main stage for the opening night Meet, Greet & Jam, an awesome open mic night with a full live band on stage. CHAUVET® DJ lit it up, giving DJs with rock star visions a taste of rock star lighting. The stage consisted of a TRUSST® Goal Post Kit with a MotionDrape™ LED. Mounted on the truss were four Intimidator™ Spot Duo and two Core™ 3×3 lights. Also, four SlimPAR™ Quad 6 wash lights warmed the truss . To add dimension, two TRUSST® totems located at the front of the stage, were both warmed with a Freedom™ Par Quad 5 and featured two Intimidator™ Spot LED 350 mounted on top. The big hit of the night were the two Geyser™ RGB units that added that extra big stage effect! ROCK ON ArmDJs!
