NASHVILLE – When the CMA Awards come to Nashville, it is a multi-night event for Music City. Country music bombshell Jana Kramer performed under Bandit lighting in a spectacular rooftop concert special.
Designed by Victor Fable, Bandit provided Chauvet RH1 Hybrids, Lekos and Sunstrips for the event, giving the “Whiskey” crooner a striking set.
“The RH1 Hybrids were necessary to create the ‘Night Penetrating’ Beam to create a ceiling of light amongst the Nashville skyline,” said lighting director Andy Knighton. “The Sunstrips offered a tungsten hue for illuminating people, and was also a rather pleasing toy to provide animation and movement.”
The event took place on a roof in Downtown Nashville on Broadway, one of the city’s main sources of honky-tonks and live music venues. Bandit’s crew worked tirelessly to transport everything necessary for the show against the bustling backdrop of one of the busiest thoroughfares of Music City.
“Bandit sent down a barrage of shop guys to help navigate the challenge of the cumbersome load in, and exceeded expectations,” added Knighton.
Another challenge came in the form of competing with Nashville’s stunning horizon. Knighton relied on the use of the Chauvet’s RH1 Hybrids, which were able to cut through the night air and provide visuals fitting for Kramer’s sassy sound, saying, “The RH1 was powerful enough to separate itself like a Boss!”
