NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – American rock band Slightly Stoopid is bringing the party to the people with their “Schools Out for Summer Tour.” Known for their signature blend of reggae, punk, rock and punk sound, the band tours extensively every year, with Pollstar ranking them in the top 20 summer tours for the last two years. Bandit Lites is once again providing the lighting package for the band, who dropped their ninth studio album, Everyday Life, Everyday People mid-July.

Lighting designer Scott O’Connor shared he wanted to design a rig that was all together simple and clean, but bold. This summer’s production evoked the look of a backyard house party, giving the audience the sensation they’ve dropped in on an epic summer bash.

Bandit Lites supplied a lighting package consisting of festoons (a feature O’Connor shared as his favorite look), Martin MAC Viper Profiles, Martin MAC Auras, GLP X4S, Chauvet Nexus 4x4, Chroma Q Color Force 72 and Solaris Flares. A grandMA 2 lite console provides control.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the collaborative efforts of Scott and Brian in putting this show together this year,” said Bandit Vice President Mike Golden. “Scott came up with a very cool look for this year’s tour and I was able to watch him build the show while he programmed at Bandit.  Between Scott, Brian and Jimmy Murray this has been an exceptionally well-run tour.”

This is the second year that Slightly Stoopid has toured with support from Bandit Lites and tech Jimmy Murray. O’Connor shared that the production “couldn’t be happier” with their experience.

Slightly Stoopid’s tour continues into August. For more information regarding tickets and tour dates, visit
