He established the first Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Westport, Conn., in 1974, with this goal in mind. more

Coemar Infinity Wash XL Lights Raise Jay-Z Performances To New Heights

Is there a better way to ensure rock-solid tour lighting than with Coemar Infinity Wash XLs’ powerful mastery? Don’t think so. A powerful master himself, Rock-A-Fella/Def Jam/Universal recording artist Jay-Z is glad the Infinitys came along for the flights.

From Philadelphia to Charlottesville to Boston to East Rutherford for radio festival support, then on to Cleveland for a Barack Obama benefit, the lighting industry’s relied-upon ralliers gave each superb show a superb shine.
