“These all function extremely well, and areproving popular with our clients,” confirms Rabar. “On top of that we have avast range of easily available spares, and technicians are on call 24 hours aday. PR Lighting were also quick to provide us with the various patches werequired for our lighting consoles.”

The above PR Lighting fixtures combined tomake their debut on a concert filmed for broadcast at Nairobi’sCarnivore Gardens.This was the TuskerLite Experience, and included Grammy award-winning AmericanR&B singer-songwriter Anthony Hamilton, with Kenya’s leading soulstress, AtemiOyungu.
