Pollstar Awards Bandit Lighting Company Of The Year

USA – Pollstar, the renowned trade publication that covers the professional concert industry has awarded Bandit Lites the honour of Lighting Company of the Year at the 27th Annual Pollstar Industry Awards.

Actor and comedian Gary Owen hosted the event which took place on 12th February in San Francisco at the Marriott Marquis and celebrated all aspects of the entertainment industry, from venues to festivals and touring artists.

Bandit chair and founder, Michael T. Strickland (pictured) accepted the award, acknowledging the win as a shared success with Bandit’s employees and clients.

“We are again very humbled to be honoured by our peers in the industry. We credit this win to our phenomenal staff and to our wonder clients, without which we would not be where we are. We promise to work harder every day to deliver the world’s finest people, service and gear in order that our clients shine as bright as they possibly can.”

This honour marks the 24th ‘Lighting Company of the Year Award’ bestowed upon Bandit, who also has the distinction of being the only company nominated every year since the inception of the Pollstar event.

Pollstar’s Lighting Company of the Year Award caps off an incredibly successful year which included NFL Draft Day, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Launch, a summer of major festivals including nominees Bonnaroo, Hangout and Lollapalooza, and massive touring successes of artists such as Garth Brooks, Halestorm, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Jimmy Buffett and Barry Manilow.

Strickland wrapped up by saying: “2016 will be another banner year for Bandit Lites. The Installation division already has hit their numbers for the year and it is only February! The Live Show division is fully booked and we are purchasing new equipment daily. We look forward to seeing everyone this year and to continue to earn your trust, your friendship and your business! Thank you!”
