RF Shows, a burgeoning production and rental company based in Noordorp, Netherlands, owned and run by Jeroen Kwakernaak extended its Robe lighting arsenal.
The latest investment involved Robe LEDBeam 150s, adding to the company’s purchase of Robe miniPointes and LEDBeam 100s in 2017. The rental stock also includes the original second-hand Robe ColorSpot and ColorWash XTs he purchased whilst still DJ’ing in 2006.
Kwakernaak and the team wanted the Robe LEDBeam 150s as a complement to the Robe miniPointes and to spec for a series of their own projects this summer including club and dance events plus outdoor festivals.
“Even with only 4, 6 or 8 fixtures, you have a good and respectable lightshow, and these types of Robe fixtures combine well together, making it easy to scale a show-up,” said Kwakernaak.
“They are super small, quick, lightweight, bright and highly affordable,” said Kwakernaak on Robe miniPointes. He likes the double prisms and the frost effects which are very helpful for creating multiple eye-candy looks, while crews love them because they are so easy to handle and rig.
RF Shows supplied lighting to numerous festival events throughout the busy summer period, which this year was blessed with incredible weather.
These smaller fixtures are also ideal for lighting their ‘beach club’ events … a Netherlands coastal music phenomenon combining restaurants, great music and dancing in some of the coolest waterside locations.
With the Robe miniPointe having the same colour system as the Robe Pointe, they can all be matched consistently for larger shows that might include some sub-rented Pointes.
The original Robe Pointe is omnipresent in Benelux, thanks to the proactivity and energy of Robe’s Benelux distributor, Controllux another reason that Kwakernaak wants to stay with Robe – for the great after-sales service and support.
