No light stand or mount to put LED Stage light

Hey! I'm throwing a small music showcase at a bar in LA and I must have Stage lights. The last show, I had no lights. Some artists were performing in darkness. My budget is only 100$, cause the show is around the corner and we exhausted our budget. I found some LED lights to buy, but they need stands or mounts i think I'm not sure. Is it possible to mount it without damaging the property? Any help welcomed! Asap

You may have better luck renting some lights for your current budget. And with that rental you can get the necessary stands/mounts as part of the package.

if you want to go really basic, just pick up a couple of worksite floodlights, something like

B&Q Halogen J118 Work Light F1812 | Departments | DIY at B&Q
They won't be especially pretty, and you won't have any colours or real control over the lighting, but its about the cheapest way to flood a stage with light out there.

Otherwise, you could probably hire a couple of parcans, a dimmer, a DMX controller and some stands for your budget.

Or even, as the budget is so small, skip the controller and just rent some led rgb's and put them on sound active or internal program. That way it just adds some wash and ambiance, which I assume is what you're going for.

For 100$, you aren't going to be able to buy much that isn't disposable, other than standard color bulbs and put them in the aluminum dish worklights that another poster mentioned.

Can you mount the lights to the top of your FOH speakers? My mains have flypoints so I mount a light to each on a flypoint and set them to a slow fade.

Here's a small show, doing just that.
