St. Elmo’s Fire Rigging, Inc. was formed in 2002 as a means to provide rigging, lighting and technical services for the entertainment industry in Los Angeles and is a licensed general contractor recognized by the Contractors State License Board of California. We provide professional, permanent installations of sound, lighting and rigging equipment for all types of venues. From historic theatre restorations of hemp (rope) fly systems to remodels and new construction of counterweight or computer operated cable winch systems, our riggers have the knowledge and specialized skills essential for all aspects of even the most demanding projects. We access and service speakers, lights, rigging and all areas that are literally out of the reach of most trades.

Theatres, stages and arenas are where the majority of our craft is performed, but we are occasionally called to work in areas that require special considerations such as factories, towers and bridges. Increasingly houses of worship require advanced technical services and we are proud to offer a special, reduced rate to these institutions. We can also deploy non-invasive techniques with minimal signature for these venues and others that must remain open while we operate.

In addition to our permanent installations, St. Elmo’s Fire Rigging, Inc. offers live event rigging support. We have provided rigging services for Broadway tours like “I Am My Own Wife” and “Sunday in the Park with George”; concert rigs for Beck, Menem, Hanna Montana and Eddie VanHalen; event installations for The Robb Report, Absolut Vodka and AMC The American Movie Channel; and lecture set-ups for Sean Hannity and presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

The company’s founder, Michael Harvey, has a B.A. in Theatre has worked professionally in event production for 20 years. He is a crew member of the Irving Johnson; the Official Tall Ship of Los Angeles, volunteer sails with the Los Angeles Maritime Institute and is a member of the I.G.K.T.
