It is with immense pride that Bandit Lites shares its nomination for Lighting Company of the Year at the 21st Annual Parnelli Awards. Since 2001, the award recognizes “pioneering, influential professionals and their contributions, honouring individuals, companies, and game-changing products. It is truly the “Oscar®” of the Live Event Industry.”

This year’s award soiree takes place Friday April 14 at the Anaheim Convention Center

NAMM Ballroom and features a cocktail hour, dinner and ceremony.

“The Parnelli Awards are indeed the place the industry goes annually to recognize the excellence within,” said Bandit Lites Chair Michael T. Strickland. “Terry Lowe and staff do an amazing job each year and allow this great industry to stop and celebrate for a few days. Seeing old friends and making new ones is a highlight of the trip.”

With 55 years of lighting excellence, Bandit Lites has established itself as the premier leader in concert lighting, and 2022 was no exception. From Alice in Chains and Breaking Benjamin’s epic run, Carrie Underwood’s stunning Denim & Rhinestones production, Alanis Morrisette’s Jagged Little Pill anniversary celebration, Widespread Panic’s magical events, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville adventures, Garth Brooks record setting Stadium Tour to the Rock N’ Roll Cowboy tour with Jason Aldean, Bandit continued to lead the industry back to live.

“Bandit is always humbled and honoured to be recognized by our industry peers,” finished Strickland. “Bandit has always strived to lead the way in the industry, and Bandit will always allow our friends and clients to Experience Excellence!”
