With the onset of another beautiful summer here in Southern California comes not only the multitude of sensational summer tours, but also comes the family-friendly and extremely entertaining shows at county fairs! Just a few weeks ago one of our favorite artists, Colbie Caillat played to a completely riveted audience at the Orange County Fair 2013 in Costa Mesa, California. Working with Tour Manager Ryan Bishop, we here at Rent What? were very excited to help provide some of our dynamic theatrical rental drapes for Colbie’s summer tour, and especially at this local county fair.

Led by renowned stage designer Paul “Arlo” Guthrie, their design team used our versatile 30’ x 15’ Chameleon LED Backdrops as their main stage cyc, and layered our lightweight and enchanting 24’h x 12’w Sheer White Voile pleated specialty drapes directly in front of them. Layering these White Voile drapes in front of the Chameleon LED drapes helped create a mystical and dream-like appearance to their already stunning stage design, which was perfect for an outdoor concert under the stars! As the Chameleon LED drape operator, Kenny Gribbon was brilliantly able to utilize the included DMX controller to change the colors of the LED lights on the drape according the mood of the song and to the exact rhythm that they desired. And talented OC Fair photographer Ronn Conzano was able to truly capture how unique and gorgeous the stage design was behind this captivating artist. We were thrilled to be a part of Colbie Caillat’s amazing show, and love that her design team was able to layer our rental theatrical stage drapes in such a dramatic and memorable way.
