Chauvet “went blue” to help fight a disorder that affects 1 in 68 babies born in the U.S. every year, and the company, along with PLSN editor and noted LD Nook Schoenfeld, is hoping that other lighting industry members  join in this effort. On March 30, the company lighted its headquarters in Florida, as well as its facilities in the United Kingdom and Belgium, a bright royal blue to kick off the week leading up to World Autism Awareness Day on April 2.

A longtime advocate of autism research and care, Schoenfeld was instrumental in getting the upper floors of the Empire State Building illuminated blue a few years ago as part of the “Light It Up Blue” campaign to draw attention to the disorder on Autism Awareness Day.  “The organization Autisms Speaks came up with the idea of lighting landmark buildings blue on Autism Awareness Day to raise awareness of the disorder,” he said. “I’ve been a big supporter throughout.”

Brothers Gow has done over 500 live shows since the quintet was formed in Flagstaff, Arizona in late 2007, and it’s safe to say that no two performances have ever been the same. Fans never know where this jam band is going to take them musically as it seamlessly blends rock, funk, jazz, reggae and other genres in fresh new ways. Such music calls for a lightshow with the speed and suppleness to wrap itself around the band’s free-flowing sound, which is exactly what lighting designer Matt Collier is providing on its current “Fly With Me Tour,” using a collection of Chauvet fixtures.

“Brothers Gow is a band that makes a lot of transitions, embraces a lot of different styles of music and is always ready to improvise, so being quick is very important,” said Collier. “Having basic and static red or blue lights on stage wouldn’t do this band or its music justice.”
