The design also had to reflect the South Florida electronic music vibe that attendees expect. All the while keep the project in budget.
There were LED hexagons along the back and side walls. The square keyboard and drum risers had rounded backlit sections added for the circular look.
The keyboardist and drummer were each surrounded by a hexagonal LED tube backdrop.
The hexagons were constructed of PVC pipe for rigidity and the LED tubes were attached. Inside the hexagons were 10″inch work lights ($12 Lowes) that connected to the dimmers. They put in 60-watt clear silver bowl bulbs ($2.84 1000bulbs.com) for an authentic look.
The 2ft LED tubes are 8ft clear fluorescent tube covers ($4.50 Home Depot) cut to 2ft lengths with Lee 216 diffusion gel inside lit by 5050-300 RGB LED tape (Amazon $11.36) inside. The tape was connected to a DMX controller ($249 superbrightleds.com) and 2-12 volt 30amp power supplies. ($25 Amazon).
