3 Stage Lighting


Our Passion

We like to think of ourselves as the artisans of event lighting, the lighting company that takes a handcrafted approach to our Edison displays, the individuals that pay special attention to details like fabric uplight covers — handmade right here in super sunny California. We’re a small business with a big vision and tons of creativity ready to be unleashed on your event.

Our history runs deep with a passion for lighting and a belief that storytelling is possible with the use of light. Our core values include:
• Design options (called optional extras) for all clientele regardless of budget
• Easy to understand quotes (with no hidden fees)
• Giving back to the community via programs like Arts Benicia
• Growing consistently with innovative equipment & designs
• Creating long-lasting relationships with our clientele
• Working with local businesses as much as possible (event planners, suppliers, manufacturers, etc)

Meet “Mr. Lighting Guy” aka the Owner

“Hello! My name is Daniel Banuelos and I’ve been in the industry for just about a decade. I graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.A. in Theatrical Lighting which gave me the opportunity to design fashion shows to theatrical performances. Shortly thereafter, I began working for one of the largest companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. I had the opportunity to design events for clients like Google, Intel, Zynga, and many more. This led to the realization that I wanted to create my own event lighting company, a family really, of passionate designers such as myself focused on design, creativity, and the art of lighting. I would personally like to thank you for considering 3 Stage Lighting for your event lighting needs (no matter how big or small).”
