John Schlick is an amazing concert lighting designer who works with the artist to create a stage atmosphere that makes the band onstage feel comfortable, allowing them to give their best performance, while creating striking (yet completely appropriate) visual presentations of the music being played.
Please: see the Photos page for proof of this statement.

In the music business, the name of the game is not just talent, but also trust and reliability. John is a lighting designer that you can really TRUST your stage show to.  He is a consumate reliable hardworking professional that will not let you down (and yes, his clients will back him up on this statement).

He is available for touring (from clubs to arenas), and for concert lighting design for Music Videos, as well as important showcase or one-off events, and he has competence running every major and most minor lighting controllers in use today, and is fully able to deal both with any piece of automated lighting as well as any quantity of conventional lighting instruments.

John spent a year as the internationally touring Lighting Designer for Ted nugent, and 2 years as the nationally touring LD for The Genitorturers (at the 1500 seat level), has in the past toured nationally as the Lighting Designer for Fishbone, and Operator and recently, he has been doing international shows with TriPod (in the european 30,000 seat featival market) as well as designing the lighting for The Michael Jackson Laser Tribute.   He also has a bevvy of clients in his home town of Seattle.  John also recently became the first Lighting Designer to place automated fixtures on the roof of Seattles Historic Space Needle and include changes of roof color as part of a one-off party.
Last year, John did a 4th of July celebration for a small city near Aspen (3000 people on a ski slope) that included lasers, projections, ground based fog effects and lots of moving lights. This party was a huge success.

His rates are reasonable, and based on the circumstances of the band and the venues being played, but he is DEFINITELY worth taking on the road if you want to look amazing and leave your audiences with the feeling they have just seen the BEST show you have ever done.
