“Today’s #FestivalFriday news piece comes from hugely talented young #lightingdesigner Jon Smith at Jon Smith Entertainment Services LTD who is enjoying massive success even though he has only had his company for less than two years now!

He started the Summer with a bang by using 16x #MegaPointes and 20x #BMFLwashbeams from ROBE Lighting whilst making the lighting design for Giggs and London’s Wireless Festival, and who made a surprise entrance but Drake himself, probably the world’s hottest rap talent, pretty amazing!”

“Jon is the ultimate example of “above and beyond.” He makes it all happen! I was completely blown away with our set design, light show, pyro, stage props and the list goes on. Big stage or small, club or arena, Jon is your guy! Unless I am on tour, because he will be with me!”

Jarret Reddick – Lead Singer of Bowling for Soup

“Worked with Jon on the Bowling for Soup tour where he was LD & SFX technician. Very professional & would recommend ”

Simon Gallachger – Live Nation Rep

“Any position that Jon has taken on for my band, and any band he has worked for, he has brought 150% every time. He is the first awake and last asleep. He is the first one unloading the trailer and the last one in the trailer. His day never ends. I rarely come across people who care as much as Jon does for any job and it is a breath of fresh air.”

Marc Kantor – Patent Pending guitarist

“Jon was an awesome addition to the team. He went above and beyond what was asked of him and did it without ever asking for anything extra. The lighting show he put on added a huge dynamic to the live show. He also was a great help with coordinating travel and transportation. Jon is easy to live with and professional. He is self contained and he made my job easy. I am looking forward to working together with him in the future!”

Trevor Jackson – LITS tour manager

“Jon has done lighting for the civic hall shows from comedians to rock concerts and has always impressed with his attitude and application ”

Tice Taylor, Programme Manager – Civic Hall, Wolverhampton

“Jon came to work with us on our last UK tour never having seen the show before, and he did a fantastic job even though he was working with a limited budget. He’s got great vision and imagination, and his show timing is excellent….in fact his attitude to every aspect of the tour was first class. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in working with him again!”

Tony Henderson, Producer – The Bootleg Sixties

“Jon made the show look amazing and was always attentive to our set lists and multiple artists on one show.  Highly recommended!  He made the set come to life and he was a joy to work with”

” Jon Smith’s designs and lighting arrangements are ABSOLUTLY amazing! They really compliment and reflect the energy of my music! And I always get people commenting about how great the lighting at my gigs have been particularly on our recent European tour”

Jake Isaac – Singer/Songwriter

“Jon came on board as a lighting and AV tech for Grayson Perrys 2016 UK tour with us and did a fantastic Job. Very professional and creative, making use of the basic lighting he had access to, he really made the stage stand out in every theatre, getting his head round any tech problems that may have crept up and always mucking in; also a great chap to have around.”

Olly Rowland – Rage Touring

“Jon was an incredible addition to our team and instantly blended right in with our crew. His lighting skills took the show to the next level and was exactly what we needed. He had the songs and the show memorised on day one. 100% pro and still 100% fun guy. Both are equally important on tour.”
