I used to get told off at the club I was resident at for over-using the fog. I used to accidentally lean on the “on” button, honest. Once I locked the door so the manager couldn’t come in and get me to stop. That, I have to admit, wasn’t accidental.
Anyway, I digress. Fog/smoke machines are good. They give instant atmosphere. They can get dancefloors started. People prefer to dance sometimes when they can’t see their feet Or hands. Or partners. Can’t tell you why, it’s just the truth. And here is a great little, portable but powerful fog machine from Rosco, the Mini-V. Enjoy the demo video, and consider getting a fog machine if you’re expected to take your own kit to gigs. Your audiences will dance quicker, I promise you. Just don’t overdo it…
Do you use a fog or smoke machine? do you love (or hate) this particular effect? Would you add one to your set-up? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
