The lights are programmed to change color and intensity and are choreographed to different songs. Six high-powered beams of light accentuate the production by projecting at least 20,000 feet into the sky. The six lights mimic the strings of an imaginary guitar neck.

About The Author


I am a writer, blogger, podcaster, jew, asshole, and highly intelligent mammalian lifeform. Actually, I just really like the word 'mammalian'. I have interviewed rapper/entertainer Dirt Nasty, world-famous DJ Irie, custom bike builder Eddie Trotta, art con-man Chad LOVE Leiberman, and sports talk radio icon Sid Rosenberg. My opinions offend. My words sting. I can't help it. Maybe I wasn't loved enough. You now reap the rewards of my biting commentary.
