02 Mar Our lights are FAMOUS
By: Abigail Scott
Our lights have been on tour with Gregory Alan Isakov, LVDY, and Rising Appalachia! Honestly, we’re a bit jealous of their VIP status and front row seats. While we can’t spend every weekend foot-stomping to a twangy banjo or swaying to soulful melodies, we’re sure tickled that REVEL’s cheery string lights have made it backstage, casting a warm glow on the musicians who make our world a whole lot brighter.
We’ve seen people get pretty creative with our 30-foot Trail Hound™ strand lighting. One Revel Gear fan used the lights to decorate her knee walker scooter and another skydived adorned in our twinkling bulbs. One of our favorite places to peep a strand is on stage, backstage, and on the road with the music makers and dreamers of dreams.
We’re obviously passionate about the outdoors and we’re also stoked on anything that brings people together in a positive way. Beautiful music crafted by gentle souls is perhaps one of the most connecting experiences and we want to see more of these. To do our own tiny little part in bringing folks out of loneliness and into the fold, we’ve looked to support musicians of all genres, skill sets, and reach throughout their journeys.
We only see the tip of the iceberg of what it takes to be a musician. They don’t just practice their instruments in order to play on stage. For every two hour set we get to participate in, there’s thousands of hours of business administration, marketing, networking, writing, collaborating, merch-designing, commuting to shows, loading gear, unloading gear, learning audio equipment, troubleshooting said audio equipment when it breaks, on stage, in the middle of a banger. Gosh, we can’t even imagine how much goes into musicianship.
We want to recognize and thank these people who make our communities rich, vibrant, communal, and alive. The way we know how to do that is with beautiful lights. The musicians we’ve partnered with have implemented string lights for impromptu lawn sets, lighting up merch booths, and fostering chill, pre-show vibes in the green room. They’ve decorated tour bus bunk beds and lit up music festival booths. They’ve gotten creative in adding some twinkle to the mix.
We want to keep lighting up stages, guitar cases, merch booths, tour buses, and the lives of musicians who are the real warriors sharing their souls with all of us. Know a musician who you think would love our lights? Get in touch.
