Bandit Makes Big Chauvet Gear Purchase


NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Bandit Lites is launching into 2020 with a sizeable purchase from Chauvet Professional including Maverick MK3 Spots, COLORado Solo Battens and Rogue R2X Washes. With the year already engaged with an extensive number of events and tours, the team at Bandit Lites knew the inventory additions would be necessary to meet the growing demands of clients.

The Maverick MK3 Spot has already proven itself to be a pillar in designs as it has been featured on Mark Carver’s design for the 2019 Dove Awards, Seth Jackson’s design for the Hillsong Worship/Casting Crowns/Elevation Worship Tour 2019, Jason Aldean Kitchen and Rooftop Bar special show, Julien Reux’s design for the 2019 Sasha Sloan Tour and Jerry Holcomb’s design for the 2020 Winter Jam Tour.


“When I learned Chauvet was building the MK3 series, I was very excited to see them jump into this market,” said Bandit Lites Director of Technical Services Jake Tickle. “The Chauvet Maverick MK3 Spot has all the horsepower needed to take full advantage of its full feature set. This lighting fixture will be a workhorse in our inventory!”

Bandit Lites also supplied Chauvet COLORado Solo Battens on Mike Marcario’s design for Tenth Avenue’s North tour, the Dove Awards, Erik Parker’s design for Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight®: New Year's Eve in Nashville and the 2020 Winter Jam Tour.  


“With its unique lensing, excellent output and IP rating, the Chauvet Solo Batten ticks and lot of boxes that I could ask for from a batten style fixture,” added Tickle. “One of my favorites in that category.

”The Chauvet Rogue R2X Wash has already been seen at the 2019 NASCAR Sprint Car Awards, LUMINA DESIGN’s rig for the 2020 YoungLife Conference and the upcoming Crescent Productions Conference.


“Building off the wildly successful Chauvet Rogue R2 Wash, the R2X adds the output I was looking for in a fixture of its size,” finished Tickle. “From Key Light to backlight and everything in between, I’m excited to have the Chauvet Rogue R2X fill our clients’ needs.”
