BANDIT BRINGS THE LIGHTS TO LECRAE SPRING RUNS

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – When hip-hop recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and actor Lecrae needed a lighting package for his one-off season, Bandit Lites was there to provide the gear and support for those on the road. With venues ranging from a headlining event at U.S. Bank Stadium to an intimate performance at prisons for inmate moral, Production Manager Charlton Combs crafted a diverse and vibrant lighting design for the two time Grammy-award winner. 

“The hardest challenge we find is building a rig that can work for 5,000 people or 50,000 and still bring the same look every night,” explained Combs.
