The Use of DJ Lasers in a NightClub

Updated on March 28, 2013

One type of lighting that has become popular in nightclubs and with mobile deejays is laser lighting. DJ lasers have been added to their repertoire of lighting as they are an inexpensive way to bring an average light show to the next level.

One of the first considerations with DJ lasers is the color. Laser lights are available in red, green, blue, yellow, purple, pink and white with models having one, two or four sets of lights with animations and twinklers. To determine which color or sets of colors are best to use, one needs to examine the environment in which the lights will be used. For a darker and more intimate environment, the reds and purples are the colors of choice as these set up a kind of underground experience. For a more vibrant, exploding club style environment, then the greens, blues and yellows are the colors of choice as these can transform a boring club experience into something new and exciting, reaching a different caliber.

To maximize the use of DJ lasers, one should use a multi-color laser. Having control over the colors of the show will enable the deejay to synchronize the lighting show with the music and complement the lighting scheme of the rest of club. By simply changing the colors of the show, the deejay can alter the entire mood of the show.

The next consideration with the use of DJ lasers is the style of laser light that is most appropriate for the situation. This may seem like an easy decision to make such as using quad lights or animation but too much lighting or improper lighting can make or break a show. A small club room filled with 10 quad laser lights flying around can not only kill the effect but be annoying to the patrons. A better approach is to cycle the lasers by using darker lasers at one point and then more vibrant brighter lights at another. This can also serve to build up the mood and energy of the patrons throughout the night.

The last consideration with the use of DJ lasers is the strength of the lasers being used. The power of the laser light, like the color, has to be appropriate for the space being lit. Using the highest power available is not always the best choice. If you access to a DMX controller that enables you to control the power and intensity of the lights, then you can use a high powered laser light to project above the dance floor and maintain the safety of the patrons while still creating the classic laser effect. Lower powered lasers can be using with disco balls and wall sketching and will still hold the interest of the crowd without overwhelming them.

These are a few tips for approaching the use of laser lights in a night club. It is apparent that one needs to do some research before introducing laser lights into a night club but using them can serve to transform a moderate light show into a more exciting and memorable one and help make your night club stand out from the competition.
