The Story so far
Many years ago, Mike and Ryan dreamed of creating a lighting company which focused solely on the needs of the client. Where corporate targets and quotas were a thing of the past, where staff enjoyed coming to work and where clients were more than just another name on a list of jobs.
They wanted to create something different than the norm, something that provided the best service and gear possible without sacrificing the personal touch that so many companies tend to lose after a certain point.
Before conception in 2017, Lights Control Rigging consisted of Mike and Ryan sitting around a dining room table, offering their expertise and advice to clients. It all started small, but the dream was big.
One step at a time, they increased their services, purchasing an MA Lighting grandMA2 on PC system. Then along came the motors and rigging, then more control and consoles and, to complete the set, came the lights.
Since then, LCR has exploded onto the industry scene, working with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Rod Stewart, BBC, Snow Patrol and so many more, allowing them to grow the company larger than they could have ever thought possible.
As the band gained more acclaim, Davy had more freedom to expand upon his already impressive concepts and go further with them, devising a design which not only complements the band, but accentuates and builds upon the atmosphere, giving audiences a truly unique experience with each show.
We are currently out on Wolf Alice’s 2022 tour which will see the band in 12 cities different cities throughout the UK! Showcasing the brilliant Ayrton Diablo-S alongside GLP Impression X4 Bar20’s, Chroma-Q Color Force II 48’s and Robe BMFL Washbeams, to name a few!
