Lighting Design: LD John LaBriola
Arguably one of the hottest bands of the last few years has been the Jonas Brothers who are out on a world tour in support of their latest album’ "Lines, Vines and Trying Times," which debuted at number one on the Billboard charts and in several countries around the world.

John LaBriola, Production and Lighting Designer for the pop-rock band since January of 2008, his 3rd tour with the trio, turned to Martin’s 1500 watt MAC III Profile to light the multiple stage set.

“I had heard great things about the MAC III Profile’s brightness and optics prior to designing the show,” he stated. “With this show requiring a trim of 55', it seemed like the perfect opportunity and the perfect light for the job.”

The 144 foot long, in-the-round set was created by Tait Towers and features three stages filled with band elevators, lifts, a 360° rotating arm and more. Some 56 MAC III Profiles serve as the main spot fixture in the show and LaBriola has them placed “everywhere” in the rig and on the set.

“The brightness is fantastic and goes without saying, and the gobo selection is phenomenal. The zoom is also truly amazing. I have cues that incorporate a full zoom on a gobo in a color that doesn't lose any brightness spanning the entire length of the arena,” he says.

“The MAC IIIs have been amazing. This is quite a large show with a pretty brutal schedule. They've taken several beatings and have been sprayed/drenched by several fluids. They continue to perform as well as the first day of production rehearsals.”

Martin Atomic 3000s with Atomic Colors scrollers are also everywhere they could fit in LaBriola’s design. “Their brightness and parameter control is second to none,” he says. “They enable the ability to use a strobe light for everything for accents to dramatic fade/timed cues.”

LaBriola appreciated the support he received from Martin US on this summer’s kick off North American leg. “Brad Haynes provided extensive insight and support for the fixture as well as allowing input for future firmware changes. I can't thank him enough,” he says. Lighting supply for the US leg was by BML-Blackbird. Tour Director is Rob Brenner. The tour resumes in November with a string of European dates.
