Bandit Lites Delivers ACL 360 Bars for Buckhead Church Easter Service

USA – Spring has long been the season of renewal, and for most congregations, this Spring marked the return of in person Easter services. Buckhead Church held both virtual and in-person services for their 4th April services with a special lighting system supplied by Bandit Lites.

“We had to do a total redesign last minute,” said Colton Roth, systems engineer for Buckhead Church. “Bandit was super helpful in putting together the cabling package needed and gathering the large fixture quantity required with a quick turnaround.”

“Jay Waddell first introduced us to Mr. Colton Roth a few weeks prior to this event but immediately upon introduction, it felt like a great fit between us,” said Bandit Lites vice president Mike Golden.

Bandit’s commitment to excellence extends to every gig, from tours planned months in advance to weekend one-offs with a shorter lead time. The result is an efficient system carefully prepped to deliver the lighting the client expects.

Bandit provided 90 Elation ACL 360 bars that were used in a grid layout, giving the team a dramatic background and flexibility to create unique looks for each song in the Easter set.

“The Elation ACL 360 Bar continues to be a frequently spec'd workhorse,” said Bandit Lites technical service director, Jake Tickle. “I am always pleased to see these being used in new creative ways.”

“I had Jay Waddell program the songs from his studio,” explained Roth, “and then he came in and loaded his file to our grandMA3 full-size and tightened it up with the fixtures in there in person and cameras on. Signal Productions handled all load in, load out, and set build on the week of show.”

“I had no doubt that Colton and Jay would produce a beautiful Easter production, but the pictures were beyond my expectations,” finished Golden. “It was a pleasure to work with both of these gentlemen and I look forward to what they come up with in future.”
