Superstar Jason Aldean Taps Bandit Day One

jason-aldean.jpgCountry superstar Jason Aldean assembled his team when he began touring, and from the start, Bandit Lites was his lighting vendor. Bandit VP Michael Golden has handled the account working with manger Clarence Spalding, tour manager Tim McCormick, production manager John Fritz and talented lighting director Aaron Swetland. Throughout 2010, the lighting system has continually gotten larger, as have the crowds. Along the way, Aldean's new album “My Kinda Party” has outsold every other country album this year! Aldean has very calmly ascended to the top of the industry with his high quality music and his riveting stage show. Night after night fans leave sold out arenas commenting that it is one of the best shows they have ever seen.

Swetland works magic with moving trusses carrying MAC 2000 Washes and Spots, GRN Washes, Atomic Strobes and Jarags. His console of choice is a Grand MA. The system also carries a number of video panels and the trusses perform scissor moves so that there are multiple looks throughout the evening. The drama Swetland is able to create via the assorted truss formation provides a depth and a visual effect that captures the intensity of the music.

Bandit is proud to be a part of this dynamic artist from Macon Georgia. Aldean will be a force to be reckoned with in the music industry for many years to come. He has already sold over 20 million albums, had four number one singles and charted numerous other times. Why, She's Country, Big Green Tractor and The Truth all rose quickly to number one cementing Aldean as a true superstar. All of his albums have gone either gold or platinum as everything Aldean produces connects with the fans.
