Christmas light display synced to music

Hi. This is our home in Iowa City, decked in 8000 LED lights. I've synchronized the display with several songs, and the "show" runs nightly from 6pm to 9pm. The music is transmitted from my home and passers-by can hear the music on their radio as they watch the lights dance. I'm attaching one the songs - "Club Can't Handle This" by Flo Rida. I hope you enjoy.

I think it's awesome! I do this myself using the same equipment and can tell you it takes a significant personal investment of time and $. Before putting it down you should try it yourselves. If all we did was Christmas music it would get boring.

All you naysayers are crazy... this is awesome. Christmas music light displays are all over youtube if you want to see that... this is different. AWESOME!!

STANDING OVATION TO THE RABI FAMILY!!! That totally rocks!! Kudos for putting it to music that is catchy and carries lots of beat and rhythm-- those that say otherwise don't have to watch or enjoy it-- keep up the great work !!!!

It should be to Trans Siberian Orchestra. Its Christmas, not a club song!

Great job on the lights Rabi family!! Ignore Chris' rude comment. Some just can't be satisfied...or write in English!

How do you hear the songs on the radio? A certain station?

Judy says ... on Sunday, Dec 12 at 1:48 PM

Love it but I think it should be Christmas music! Very pretty!!

Chris says ... on Sunday, Dec 12 at 1:40 PM

I am not impressed 1 it is crappy dance music rather than Christmas tunes and 2 the lights are in only 1 section. 8000 sounds like a lot but seem small visually!
