    I don't preform in groups. I am always a soloist. I don't think each group member would have his/her own light.

    Ha! I'm glad you appreciate my humor.

    I'm surprised that no body mentioned one of those lights that one wears on his/her head like a miner.

    Great!, UkerDanno, but one wouldn't need to wear the helmets. Some lights just have a headband. I think campers use them.

    Or, one could just tape a flashlight to his/her head.

    Mighty Bright Duet 2 music stand light. I like that it offers both battery and electrical power options - I use batteries when performing, and the power cord for everything else.

    Just personally, I resisted getting any of the deely-bopper or antennae-type stand lights for years, after experiencing them on a number of gigs. I yearned to get a good, not too expensive one with a single, bright light bar across the top. The difference to me is, if you'll pardon the expression, like night and day.

    Oh, and I have a few headband-type lights as well. They're great for doing odd jobs around the house, especially ones that involve crawling into kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Not so good for music, though. Particularly if you move your head around a lot while playing.

    Depends on your skill level and the crowd. Sometimes you may want the helmet to protect you from projectiles.

    I'm going to give your linked one a try! The deely-bopper style works great the one time a year when I perform with my group on a dimly-lit, crowded stage, where I can angle it exactly where I need it, but I think for the day to day aiding of my middle-aged eyes, I'd prefer the light bar. So - thanks for the reco!
