NEW YORK. NY—From a sold-out concert at Radio City Music Hall to a 24-city U.S. tour running August through October and a New Year’s Eve performance slated for Madison SquareGarden, Scharff Weisberg is lending its support and expertise to Marc Janowitz, lighting designer/director for noted indie band, My Morning Jacket.

floor package that we used for other venues on our mini-tour. I needed a local company with NYC experience to provide my full overhead design for Radio City,” explains Janowitz, who had worked with Scharff Weisberg on a number of other projects. “Radio City was a big date for this band, coming 10 days after their record release, and we wanted to make a big impact. Scharff Weisberg had the gear, the people, the resources, and the experience. Radio City is not the venue you want to walk into unprepared.”
In turn, Janowitz was supported by a complement of moving lights from Scharff Weisberg consisting of VARI*LITE VL2500 washes, VARI*LITE VL3000 spots, Martin Atomic Strobes with Color Changers, and Martin Mac 2K Performances.
