Bandit Lites spent 2011 with two bands destined to be major stars in the near future. Knoxville based 10 Years worked with Bandit Business Development Officer Brent Barrett for all their illumination needs throughout the year. Tour manager Michael Mahar and stage manager Noah Beachy, along with lighting designer Shawn Hammer used a variety of GRN Battens and Washes along with Atomic Strobes and Martin Hazers to produce compact but highly effective shows along the way this year. The venues varied in size and the packages had to fit the many different needs. Plans are being made now for an even bigger, badder 2012 assault.
Barrett also worked with Big Gigantic in 2011. Tour Manger Kyle Nelson and lighting designer Colin McQuilkin worked with Bandit to provide VL 2500's, GRN Battens, DF 50's and Hog 2 console and cable packages. Big Gigantic has slowly climbed in the business and is now at headliner status.
Both acts have solid fan bases and are poised to break out in 2012. Bandit is excited about the future with both artists and looks forward to big things from them in 2012.
