Any live performer or DJ knows that its not just the music that gets the people moving. Having a bit of a light show also helps the crowd to get in the mood too. Now, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a kick-ass lighting rig, but you will have to probably go over the $100 range to get something in which you would be proud to set up before any gig.

The easiest place to start is to buy a lighting set. There are some pretty good ones out there, but it all depends on what you need. If you are a DJ you probably won’t need a spotlights, just some wash lights and colour changers will do….Like this set below.
