EBE’s Dan Miller:
Lighting Designer & Drummer
EBE is made up of a myriad of people and personalities. Throughout this series of EBE Spotlights, we’re looking past the job title and learning more about what makes our team tick. We were able to sit down with Dan Miller this week, one of EBE’s Lighting Designers & Drummers.
Dan has been in the event industry for 10 years, and has been with EBE for 8 of them. Throughout those 8 years, he has been designing and executing event lighting all over the Tri-State Area. If you catch the EBE Team setting up at an event and see someone climbing the truss to get the lights just right… you’ve probably met Dan Miller.
Dan is also an integral part of our DJ/Drum division, and you can catch him drumming at EBE events everywhere. When pairing a drummer with a DJ, you’re able to provide a live music feel while still having all of the benefits of booking a DJ! You can even add other instruments to your DJ/Drum Combo, such as an electric violinist, saxophonist, guitarist, etc. To see our DJ/Drum Duo in action, watch the video below and register for our upcoming Wedding DJ Showcase or Bar/Bat Mitzvah MC Showcase!
At our Live Band Showcases, Dan can be found in the Sound & Lighting Booth with our Audio/Visual Director, Chris Michalski. If you have ever seen one of our showcases, you can attest to the care and attention that is put into the perfect light show for each song and each band. If you have never been to one, what are you waiting for?! Check out our upcoming showcases here!
