grandMA2 Locks and Reloads with Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley National Tour

Country artists Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley have Locked and Reloaded and grandMA2s along for the ride. Their 33-show national Locked and Reloaded Tour uses two grandMA2 light consoles to control about a hundred moving lights on a complex, multi-level set. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor for MA Lighting in North America.

“We wanted the production design to give us the opportunity to create different moods,” says Chris Lisle, Nashville-based production designer for the tour. “We have a lot of moving pieces. There’s a big wall of light for punch for the rock sets and some circular trusses for the moodier songs.”

Lisle had wanted to use grandMA2s “for years,” and programmer Scott Chmielewski suggested he try them for the tour. “It’s a very user friendly and functional console, yet it does so much,” says Lisle. “It’s very deep; it has so many layers, and you can get really detailed with it. One of the things I love is its ease of networking. I’ve had problems with that on other consoles.

“The grandMA2s effects engine is also amazing,” he adds. “There are so many things you can do so easily. It’s mind blowing! I had no idea we could do so many effects so simply.”

Lisle notes that Chimeleski uses the consoles for DMX merging. “There are so many functions, and some of the macros we’ve created are amazing. You can create the console you want, lay it out the way you need it to be. It was a great opportunity for me to be able to sit down with a programmer like Scott who knows the board so well. It was super easy to learn, but there’s so much more I can learn going forward.”

Lisle is impressed with the grandMA2s performance and robustness on the Locked and Reloaded Tour. “It’s a fantastic piece of equipment that’s also very reliable,” he attests.
