This will be my 3rd year. I think I've got like 37-38 songs fully sequenced. Its taken a lot of time to accomplish so for those here just starting, you need to get busy. I did so many songs, only to hopefully insure that anyone driving by will be assured they'll probably never hear the same song twice. As with the rest of us, we all tend to go back and fix areas needing attention as we "see" it. We also get ideas from watching each other's displays/videos and see things that would look nice in our displays. Anyway, time is running short...anyone planning a show this year, should have their props all but done and ready to put out and sequencing should be in process now.

I come at it from a different angle. I like to do 5 or 6 new songs every year, and only play those songs. Obviously, elements change/update, but I like the idea of really honing in and polishing a handful of sequences (not saying those of you with large sequence numbers are not polished, just wouldn't work for me).

Then, that gives people who come by multiple times to see songs a few times and they become more familiar and start to notice some of those little details we all work so hard on.

Plus, keeps traffic from staying around forever. Again, not discounting the many song approach, just wanted to share my own thoughts on it.

Same here. 4th year, started with about 24 and have done less each year like yourself, 10 this year.

I have adapted yet another approach....I have 6-7 songs per show and run 2 shows that alternate nights. If you stop by on an even calendar day you will see a show that is different than odd calendar days. Both shows are equal in length give or take a few minutes. Sequencing over 500 channels takes time and I have had lots of praises for putting together 2 shows. People like seeing a show that has an end and yet there is more on different days.

 

I'm only a stones throw away from Tower City Pa....I'll have to stop by this year

I'd have my props done but still waiting on the latest light shipment. Apparently shipment is delayed a month!  I've got a frame from one of those temporary carports that I'm going to have 72 CH of lights on. Frame is set up on the deck, just sitting there, no lights on it, just sitting there doing nothing in the warm soon to be gone sun. I hope they ship soon. :(  I don't want to have to do it all in the cold! I'm targeting 8-10 songs this year to have 2 15-20 minute shows that alternate on the half hour which should leave ample time for the crowds to disperse before the next show....

Crowds, might be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the neighborhood where you live. If its freezing cold outside, then I wouldn't think you need a break between shows as people aren't going to just hang out. However, if you live in a closed end street and you have hundreds of cars lined up waiting to see your show, then you need to post signs as to when the show schedule runs so you don't have a lot of people feeling that they've wasted time in-line and no show when they finally get up there. We've all run the risk of shipments being delayed. You've still got three months to go before show time but yes, weather, temperature and so on, become factors that we deal with. All you can do is to do your best to keep your schedule going.

 

I'm busy remodeling the kitchen, doing the 2014 Corvette Caravan now, sequencing changes in my hotel rooms such as right now and when I get home tomorrow...kitchen first as things start hopping on it the day after and for the next week. Sequencing will fall into the slow times between things. I'm down to sequencing only the RGB stuff now as the regular strings are all done or were done before.
