About Us

Who is Nightowl?

Quiet Riot

Nightowl Stage Lighting, located in Lexington, Kentucky, was founded in Evansville, Indiana in 1983 by by touring LD's Tracey Mears and Scott Matarrese.  We got our start in the clubs and local festivals. We soon began working with promoters to provide lighting for national acts touring or doing one nighters without equipment.

 In addition to sales and rentals, we specialize in providing large venue production values to mid and small sized venues for local, regional, national, and international acts, houses of worship, meetings and events, and festivals.

In 2012 we started to design and sell LED stage lightning under our own brand name. We now have a factory producing all our products to customer specifications. Today Nightowl Stage Lighting offers over 100 stage lighitng products and counting

Product Testing and Certifications


Nightowl Stage Lighting brand equipment is manufactured in Guangzhou, China, which is close to Hong Kong and the largest city in China, which is close to Hong Kong.  

We build to order, and with that comes the benefit of custom specifications. Our products are tested before shipping, and if the customer wants, after arrival in the US.
