In 2015, Brent Goff and Clifton Neff moved to Kansas City from San Francisco. New to the area and wanting to get started right away, they found our website while searching for Christmas displays and decided to call. As luck would have it, Jolt is based in Kansas City so we met with them the next day.
That first Christmas season, they added Vivid RGB Lighting’s Pixel 360 light strings along the outline of their roof, gutters, and windows. They used a couple of our Pixel controllers to run the RGB lights.
These lights were then synchronized to music using the Light-O-Rama S4 software suite, which is a lengthy, demanding process. They chose a handful of excellent songs to showcase such as Christmas This Year and Let it Go from Frozen.
They also created a Star Wars Medley just for the occasion, complete with light saber fight! They rounded out the display by adding lights to trees and bushes where we used our 16 channel Christmas in a Box controllers.
Brent and Clifton create an incredible light show for their neighbors and friends. It is for anyone who loves Christmas as much as they do. They are doing their part in spreading Christmas cheer and they enjoy having hundreds of cars driving by each evening.
The display takes months of hard work, but if you were to ask them if it is worth it, they would tell you that they are already thinking about next year’s show.
They live in the Brookside neighborhood in KC who happen to have an annual Christmas Display contest. They were quite honored to win the “2015 Most Elaborate” display award from Armor Fields Homeowner’s Association their very first year! Check out the video below.
“We have been working with Jolt Lighting for the past two years to create our home animated lighting display. We were a bit nervous to take on such a big task when we first set out to attempt our display, but Jolt has been an amazing supplier and a resource for questions. They stand behind the products they sell and have been quick to respond whenever we had any problems, even after hours.
Both Aaron and Skylar have a wealth of technical knowledge, an abundance of experience, and a helpful attitude. We can’t imagine working with anyone else.”

Brent and Clifton decided to step up their show for 2016. After winning “Most Elaborate” last year, they decided to go after “Best Theme” for 2016. They called us with their idea.
Brent and Clifton wanted us to create Charlie Brown Christmas-themed displays to conceal the light controllers they were going to place in their yard. We began immediately creating the ideas they had presented us.
We used a UV digital printer to create these displays that would now have great daytime appeal. They are created using sturdy outdoor-grade materials and will last for years to come. We used our CNC machine to assure that the cuts would be smooth and have a clean, perfect edge. They came out better than we could’ve hoped for.
Brent and Clifton added small flood lights to show off the characters during the light show. No surprise, they won the award for “Best Theme,” just as they set out for!
Let us help you create your perfect Christmas display. If you want to keep it small, we’re your guys.
