I mostly agree here.  I generally like using white lights for the front wash.  The only case I could see for having mix available is if you wanted to adjust the color temperature.  But RGB is unnecessary for that.

Put enough lights out for the wash, then use whatever RGB fixtures to get the color effects you want to use.

So many stages I've seen where they skip the wash and it looks like hell....


All day long and twice on Sunday!

I have all my "front" lighting as Warm White Leko's or fresnels from the same manufaturer and in the same color temp (Chauvet Warm White). I then put color fixtures overhead shooting almost straight down. It gives a nice layered effect. You can dim the front lights and have the overhead washes coming down and hitting the talent and it looks "dark" but you can still see everyone. Then fade up the front wash when they sing and it makes a nice dramatic change. You can not acheive this with just changing the color alone.


For example, the Preacher and the Keyboard player are fully lit here, but the rest of the band is only lit from overhead using my full color washes, in a matching warm white, but still only overhead. https://youtu.be/Ijs_aAM6gDM?t=3859


Then starting here we fade up the front wash to bring focus back to the band.
