The Birchmere, a classic music venue with a rich musical tapestry received lighting upgrade euipment and consultation services in 2011.
Many musical greats have played The Birchmere in Alexandria. Virginia; in fact Dave Matthews Band recorded their album “Recently” there. While the venue was popular with artists and audiences alike, the aging PAR can lighting system was starting to show its age. That is when resident Lighting Director David Beebe turned to Jason Reberski and JR Lighting Design, Inc. to consult, specify, and provide a modern lighting overhaul package.
"Jason made many extremely helpful suggestions in our complete redesign of the lighting at our Venue and then got us the best pricing possible. He has followed up long after the sale and is always there for us."

The lighting equipment supplied by JR Lighting Design, Inc. following a the consultation included an Avolites Pearl Expert lighting console driving a complete system of Elation Opti RGBA PARS, High End Systems LED Trackspot Bolt automated luminaires, Chroma-Q Color Force 12s, GLP Scenex Fusion FS-60 battens, an MDG Atmosphere Hazer, and ETC Source Fours with Leprecon Dimmers.
The reduction in power consumption and increase in functionality is absolutely astounding and the Birchmere is poised to continue being an excellent home for live music entertainment for years to come.” Notes Jason Reberski, President of JR Lighting Design, Inc.
