In case I missed it did anyone see any deals on a Gigbar Move?
probably the best price is at NSL with their $50 off .. comes in at $565 (+ship). Otherwise I saw it at a couple of BF deals around $620.

These are still on sale ....


Has anyone used these? I like the rechargeable idea but it said run-time is 3 hrs (unless, of course, you're only using solid color which who wants to be limited at that?). 3 hrs seems to make it rather worthless when you're doing at least 4-6+ hrs of dancefloor or up-lighting

Depends...Probably 70% of the weddings I do, the dancing portion is roughly 2 hours or a bit less. If I do a 5 to 11 p.m. Wedding, dancing is rarely started before 8:30 or maybe 8:15 at the earliest. If being used as dance floor light then 3 hours is enough to get through that portion of the night.

I would hope that Up Lighting length in a single color is rated at 10 hours or more. You figure after the first year of events, if rated at 10 hours, they would lose 15% of that stamina in the battery, and likely not last more than 8 - 8.5 hours after that first year. 8 hours is still plenty for all events that I do. I find that batteries in these wireless lights lose about 15%-20% length of use, and typically last 3 to 4 years before the battery life significantly degrades by like 30%+ However, I only use my up lights on maybe 10 events per year. If they were being used on 35 - 50+ events a year, I am sure I would see batteries die much quicker.

I bought 2 .. I charged them the other day, but haven't had a chance to run them during the day to see how long they last. Maybe tomorrow or Sunday I'll run 1 on a single color and one on a mixed (multi-led) color to see how long they go. I plan to put them on a T-bar with some AC lights so there will be power anyway for mine.

The page says 8 hours for a single color, 6.5 for a double. The 3 hrs is for all colors on .. not sure I'd have them that way (RGB + White) unless I wanted real bright white.

That always amazes me. For me the dance portion is very rarely less than 4 hours some nights it's 5-6 hours

Canadians have LONG ASS weddings.

6 hours for ceremony/cocktails/reception has totally become the norm in my market for the past 6 years. Some are 6.5 hour...Some are 5.5 hours, but most are 6 hours.

Prior to that they were in a trend of being longer affairs over time, and the norm seemed to be 5 hours total from 2008 - 2014. Prior to that, most of the time it was just a 4 hour reception, OR often the ceremony was inside the reception hall, and they still kept everything 4 hours or maybe 4.5 hours total.

Most weddings prior to 2008 were typically 7 p.m. to 11 p..m and some Saturdays you could book a Noon to 4 p.m. and then go and do a 7 to 11 or 11:30 p.m. wedding.

Now 90% of weddings around here are like 4 to 10 p.m. or 5 to 11 p.m. or sometimes 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. I might book one, maybe two 7 hour long weddings a year. ...Very rare to book a wedding starting early in the day...and if you do, it often goes to 4 or 5 p.m. so you are unable to book a night time wedding after it because starting weddings at 7 p.m. just doesn't happen any more.

At a 7 hour wedding...What usually happens at the ones I have done is the bride and groom have a real long cocktail hour. Like 90 minutes to 2 hours long, then dinner happens to be stretched longer than other weddings because the bride/groom take their sweet time talking to everyone...So they still don't have more than 3 hours of dancing after dinner.

I have done maybe 4 weddings in all my years that had 4+ hours of dancing. Two of them, were real long Indian weddings...TOO LONG for me. 7 Hours is LONG ENOUGH to do everything in my opinion!
