It is thrilling to see a backdrop come to life while it’s being painted in front of your eyes on the frame.  You can’t imagine how it could be more wonderful until you wash it over with the perfect lighting, at just the right angle, and hued with a touch of color.  Owning the skill to light a backdrop is extremely valuable, whether it’s on stage or setting the scene at an event. Knowing how important lighting can be on a backdrop I wanted to share tips from an expert, Toby Russell, owner of San Diego based Event Avision.

Wonder what’s up with Grosh? Well, we are hitting the road for the United Dance Merchants of America (UDMA) tradeshows and we couldn’t be more excited. Our friends at Revolution Dancewear, the leading provider of quality dancewear and costumes, are joining us on this road trip and it’s going to be an adventure.

First theme, Around the World featuring our Paris at Night (S3497) backdrop, next Outer Space showcasing our Silver Metallic Drapery (D1980), and last but certainly not least, a Princess theme with our Fairytale Castle (S3504) backdrop. We are positive that Cinderella would love to call this home!

Sandy’s Grosh

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Grosh blog for an important report from a long time Grosh employee who wants to share a little of her experience working at this company that helps bring events and productions to life!

Hello!  My name is Sandra Guillen I am the Customer Service Representative here at Grosh Backdrops and Drapery.  Just before I started working at Grosh, coming up on 8 years now, I can remember looking at the job description: “Receptionist needed to support the front desk and administrative tasks for a backdrop rental company.”   I thought, what’s a backdrop?! After some extensive research through every Broadway hit, television show, and movie known to man, I finally realized what that large painted thing was behind the performers! I guess they had never been something I ever thought about as a fan and audience member.   I realized how they actually are a significant part of setting the mood and creating the environment whether it’s theatrical or, for me, at a concert!
