Sam "Old Skool" Harden Award

Sam "Old Skool" Harden was a lighting designer and technician at Bandit Lites that continually went above and beyond in helping guide those that were transitioning into their careers on the road. He was a hard worker, always had a smile on his face and a huge heart. Sadly, Sam passed away after a lengthy illness in the Fall of 2013. Although he is not present with us anymore his legacy will remain.


Each year at our annual workshop, TCW awards an industry leader who dedicates their time and energy to mentor and teach those just beginning their careers.
