These plastic box ebay lights are very bright and weigh almost nothing:

The stands I use have great clamps and go to 12 feet:

Once prewired, you can purchase a $50 keyboard bag to hold each light assembly:

I can post pictures of all of the above later today as I'm moving to a new pc.

Good stuff! I'd love to see a photo of what your lights look like in the keyboard case.

I'm just getting ready to program a bunch of new Chinese lights that are similar but have RBGAUV diodes. I sat down with one and had to create a user manual - the one that came with them was completely wrong LOL.

This is my standard light bar that I through in with any PA rental. It goes on that ADJ stand (made by Accustand) and includes the following:
(1) ADJ Megabar
(2) Chinese led's - the LiteBright kind with little led's, RBGA
(2) Blizzard Hotbox 5's

You could build the same tree just using the Chinese lights and it would be just as good.

The Blizzards are set to color fade, and the others are all sound activated. This tree is a complete light show in a bag, except for the front wash. I place it on the stand, and plug it in - light show is done in 5 minutes.

The top picture shows my speaker mounted Par 38's, with incandescent 100 W bulbs. The light bar is behind the drummer. It gets dark right at the end of these summer concert shows so it's nice to have some lights.

Some money shots below. Almost everything you see are cheap, Chinese lights with fog or haze.

A couple more. In the last photo, notice the yellow lights. The gold colored light have amber, the yellow have white (RBGW). I definitely prefer the amber lights.

This show is a combination of house lights, my lights, and the bands lights.

Here's just my lights at a small rental gig. This was before I had the 2-light bracket mounted on the speaker. It's just a single Par 38 on each side.
