Bandit and Pulse Lighting Bring the Beams for Rebelution
USA – When Reggae rock band Rebelution released their fifth studio album, Falling Into Place, they took with them on tour a lighting package provided by production design firm Pulse Lighting and Bandit Lites.
Comprised of members Eric Rachmany, Rory Carey, Marley D. Williams and Wesley Finley, the Rebelution’s previous albums have topped Billboard’s reggae charts three times.
With a robust touring schedule of nearly 120 shows a year including world-renowned festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Hangout and Austin City Limits, it was crucial that the lighting package be durable, memorable and dynamic. Bandit supplemented a lighting package with Pulse Lighting to give the band a full stage production that would fill the space, wow the audience and compliment the progressive sounds of Rebelution.
Lighting designer Kenny Gribbon outfitted truss with VL 3500 Spots and four ladders descending on to the stage with Bandit supplied ROBE Pointes placed on alternating rungs. A circle truss at the centre of the stage provides a focal point, while Bandit’s exclusive GRNLite LED Pars are placed upstage for floor lighting.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Paul Hoffman and Pulse Lighting on their tours,” said Bandit’s client representative Shawn Lear. “We were able to provide Bandit’s programming facility, Venue One, as a hang room, allowing Kenny to physically see and program for the Rebelution Tour. It really gives a leg up to get the looks in early, and with some haze in the air, designers can really see the geometry of the lighting.”
