This type of fixture could be really cool if programmed. But if you're going to just put it in auto... you might as well just as well just buy a Derby.

Spastic lighting that doesn't fit the music is not a cool effect.

I believe the next version will be called the GigBar Spastic.

Spasm would be more marketable...lol.

And the bigger model with twice as many spin & pukes could be called the GigPig Convulsion.

I have the OG Gigbar and bought the GigBar Flex without the Laser. oh and I am not a weekend warrior.

90% of my events don't even want lights and the the left over 8% just want a little something that puts a little energy on the floor. Which is where the GigBar shines.

2% of my events want something more like trussing, but that 2% is rare.

The GB is perfect for my types of events and it's fast and easy and the set up doesn't ruin the look of the room.

The Mover is a step up, but for me not worth it.

If it is 2% of your event bookings, well that is 1 in 50 events. Rare, but not all that rare. Once every 24 months or less...Unless you are doing 50 events a year, then it's a yearly occurrence.

I never get any that want large trussing.

We did just book a package with Two totems, moving heads, and a few other things. Surprisingly, the bride/groom are near 60 years old. I booked my brother on it as I am already booked. I gotta find him an assistant to work with him on that one

Well you work out the numbers, yeah it is less than 2% lol I was just thinking it is rare, not even once a year, in fact I think the last time was at a wedding, but usually it is a corporate event. But here is a pic from that wedding 2 years ago.
