NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – American rock group Band of Horses recently wrapped a summer tour with a lighting package provided by Bandit Lites. Lighting designer Dara Guiney built upon the previous design by Ben Marx and added more incandescent looks, expanding the design to give a more panoramic feel.

Bandit Lites supplied Elation CuePix WW2 Blinders, Martin MAC Auras, Elation Chorus Line 16 fixtures and Mega-lite Circa Scoops.

JACKSON BROWNE TOURS WITH BANDIT LITES

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jackson Browne is back on the road for the next leg of his tour with a lighting package supplied by Bandit Lites, and while the iconic singer-songwriter’s last few tours featured big, saturated looks and backdrops, lighting designer Steve Comer designed this year’s run around beams rather than a set.
