NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – When award-winning songwriter Victoria Shaw required lighting for her celebrated music performance and storytelling series, SONGWRITERS UNDER THE COVERS WITH VICTORIA SHAW, Bandit Lites was thrilled to step up and deliver.

The show is described online as “a new, intimate, music performance and storytelling series created in collaboration with award-winning songwriter Victoria Shaw puts the spotlight on the songwriters of some of music’s biggest hits across pop, rock, and country. Top-selling songwriters share the little-known stories behind their hit songs along with an intimate live acoustic performance on stage.”

For those who tune into the second season, viewers can expect to see Ken Mo, Clint Black, Tommy Shaw (of Styx and Damn Yankees) Bob DiPiero and Garth Brooks. Lighting designer Mark Carver was tasked by the producer to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in order to make the artist on stage and their music the center of attention.

“We tried to highlight the key architectural features of the stage and room,” explained Carver.

Bandit Lites supplied Elations Seven 42s, ETC LED Tungsten Lekos for key light, Chauvet R2X Washes as backlight and color toning. GLP X4S were used for color toning the walls as well as adding upstage depth and dimension. Ayrton Khamsins LED profiles supplied pattern break ups on the walls for texture and depth and a grand MA 2 lite console provided control.

“Time frame, budget and ease of execution are always concerns on these shows,” said Carver. “Mike Golden and Jimmy Hatten supplied a well prepped package that met budget and time requirements, yet still protected the show’s integrity.”

Carter Fulghum served as the lead tech and board operator of the event with Luke Carver as gaffer.

“Bandit was great and met all expectations on a very tight schedule,” finished Carver. “The show came off without a hitch and the gear performed flawlessly.”

Songwriters Under the Covers with Victoria Shaw was created in collaboration with ALL ARTS, award-winning songwriter Victoria Shaw and Brighton Entertainment. For more information, including where to watch, visit
