Martin Thomas lights The Alan Parsons Project with CHAUVET Professional Maverick


The word “individual” comes up often when Martin Thomas talks about lighting his longtime client Alan Parsons. It isn’t necessarily Parsons himself that the Tucson, Arizona-based LD is referring to, but each of the musicians that make up the band. At the last stop of the band’s European tour at the iconic Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Thomas was faced with a challenge when he had two electrics to work with instead of three. He nevertheless was able to achieve the layered looks his design called for, thanks to a collection of CHAUVET Professional Maverick fixtures supplied by Coruna Sound & Light. Of the 28 Maverick MK1 Hybrid fixtures in Thomas’ rig, he positioned eight on the first overhead electric, 12 on the second, and had eight units upstage as backlights. Adding dimensionality to the stage were 28 Maverick MK2 Wash fixtures. Thomas hung 12 of the wash lights on the first overhead electric, and eight on the second. He positioned six on stands on the upstage side of the band risers, and had two units dedicated to up lighting the drums and keyboards.
