A Day in The Life of Jeff Waful, LD of Umphrey’s McGee

Talking to fellow lighting designers and seeing how they do things is one of my favorite parts of writing JimOnLight.com – just recently I had the absolute pleasure of having a nice long chat with Jeff Waful of Umprey’s McGee, and this morning I awoke to an email from Jeff about a two-part video he’s posted on his day.  From the bunk to the coffee, to the venue, to the focus, to the dinner, to the show – and then the out.  We end at the bunk again, as we always do on tourdays.

This is a great look into the life of a rock and roll lighting designer.  It’s well worth the watch.

Jeff, I will be buying you and Wade some drinks at some point soon.  Stay tuned.

Thanks, Jeff!

(and for all of you people out there who thought it would be awesome to assume his last name was not pronounced like that wonderful flat thing that goes with syrup and sausage, it’s actually pronounced “waffle.”  I’d like to see a waffle light UM like this Waful does, though.)
