Alison Krauss & Union Station Featuring Jerry Douglas

“We first saw the Sea Changer in Las Vegas at the LDI Show last year and were very impressed with its rich colors and minimal loss light out-put. I contacted Tom Morris with Sea Changer to check availability in hopes of using them on the Alison Krauss and Union Station tour. The show doesn’t require a lot of light movement, and it seemed to fill the bill as a reliable color changer.

 

 

They were able to deliver 40 units in our time frame, so we fit them into our Source Four lekos and used them on a brief Tony Rice/AKUS tour. Two of our lighting guys, Alex Blagg and Ed Welsh, loved the units and wanted to incorporate them into the current Hundred Miles or More tour. We suggested them to Howell, who put them into his design. They have performed flawlessly.   — Cliff Miller
