I changed three lights to produce different colors and i assume the speakers and guitar necks are producing odd colored shadows. How do I change this? Any help?

Thanks,

Matt

The lighting may be correct. 

 

They're not casting colored shadows -- notice how there are 4 distinct regions behind your columns -- areas that block all light sources -- a narrow sliver of black, areas that block the green light while being exposed to red light only, which is a red "shadow"  areas that block the red light but expose the green, which is a green "shadow" and then there are areas that are exposed to the whole spectrum and are white.

 

At a theater, they often shine three colored spotlights on an actor, all focused on one place so the light appears white, but to change the color dramatically, or quickly, or even gradually, all they have to do is block one spectrum of light, and what appeared to be white, becomes purple for example. 

 

That's the effect you're seeing in your render. 

 

I would suggest taking your render to Photoshop if you want to tone it down.  Or, you could add additional, more mellow lights in your render that would make the shadows less sharp.
