CHAUVET lights orchestrate a truly magical feat four days a week at the New Wave Magic Show in Sunny Isles where award-winning duo Kevin & Caruso enchant the audience with a dazzling whirlwind of magic, costumes, special effects, showgirls, comedy and dance unlike anything ever seen in South Florida.
Behind the scene, Technical Director George Hernandez also works miracles with the lights. Before the show, he had mostly worked with High End Systems luminaires in other stage and theatrical productions. But a leaner budget prompted him to try less pricey fixtures this time around. He was nervous.
After all, fast, reliable and versatile lighting is crucial to a magic show. It helps set moods and varies the tone of numbers, from jazzy to romantic, mysterious to humorous, sexy to fairy-tale like. The lights must be precise enough to lit only what the magician wants you to see and distract from spots purposefully kept in the dark.
A few weeks shy of the premiere, Hernandez visited CHAUVET Miami dealer Stage Equipment and Lighting and gambled on 14 CHAUVET Trackscan™ 250R to pull the trick. He knew of CHAUVET’s reputation for value but had never before tested the manufacturer's intelligent lights.
The gamble paid off. “I wanted a high-energy atmosphere, yet a classy look,” he said. “ These lights are great. They are very fast and that’s very important when you have high energy dancers.”
Trackscan™ 250R scanners are now the main lighting source of the four-day a week, often sold out performances. “ They are amazing, their size is incredible, so small for all they do! I love the split colors and the price is great.”
Kevin and Caruso enthrall the audience with their award-winning magical illusions, a healthy dose of humor, stunning well-choreographed dancers in dazzling Vegas-style costumes and mesmerizing scenes including an enchanting snow fall in South Florida.
The veteran performers have claimed the prestigious "Show of the Year" award by the Cruise Line industry for the past 5 years and recently signed a record setting, 10-year contract with Carnival Corporation to produce four new shows for the newest luxury liners of the cruise line giant.
NEW WAVE MAGIC is performed Thursdays through Sundays at 8:pm, at the Ramada Marco Polo Resort’s newly renovated Persian Theater in South Florida’s Sunny Isles Beach.
