Pulse Lighting

Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic celebrates their 25th year in 2011 with a heavily packed tour schedule including special 25th Anniversary shows in Athens, GA.  Paul Hoffman has served as Lighting Director for the band since early 2009.  Pulling from a repertoire of over 300 songs, the band never plays the same setlist twice making each show a unique musical experience.  
To effectively complement the show with lighting, the LD must be able to work "on the fly" interpreting the music as he goes, requiring special programming and operating techniques.  The lighting system must also be able to scale from the largest indoor/outdoor venues down to the smallest of theaters.  Striking the careful balance of delivering a visually exciting show while not "competing" with the music makes Widespread Panic a most challenging and exciting band to work with.
