Jelsomino_02 jelsamino2.jpg In the main karaoke space, ductwork and pipes along the ceiling are covered with paint and further concealed by a dropped lighting grid. The DMX-controlled color-changing LEDs are preprogrammed, allowing the lighting engineer to create atmospheres ranging from energetic to more sultry, depending on the crowd.

Jelsomino_04 jelsamino4.jpg ICRAVE commissioned artist Pat Ganino of Creative Evolution to paint a mural along a back wall. It features large portraits of artists including Jim Morrison, Madonna and Axl Rose, and it doubles as camouflage for several doors leading to hotel equipment rooms.
