DMN Newswire--2008-3-6--Scharff Weisberg lit up the Hammerstein Ballroom when it provided stage lighting for the February 12 Bon Jovi concert benefiting Stand Up for a Cure and lung cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Stand Up for a Cure, founded by Bon Jovis Richie Sambora, is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating lung cancer through strategic partnerships with some of the finest medical institutions in the world.
Scharff Weisberg worked with Bon Jovis lighting designer Pat Brannan to furnish stage lighting for the band as well as the evenings speakers. ?We tried to reproduce as closely as we could the bands current touring lighting rig, notes Scharff Weisberg project manager John Healy. To that end, the company provided Martin Mac 700 moving lights, ETC Source 4 lekos and PARs, Lycian spot lights, Mole lights with color changers and grandMA consoles.
