Why have I got banding with the A7 IV and 85mm 1.4GM?

Hi all,

I used the Sony A7iv with the 85mm f1.4 for the first time last night at a gig. Most of the shots taken with this lens have these thick bands running through them (two examples below). They seem to appear in the same place on all images and run vertical on the portrait shots. I also shot with the 35mm f1.4 and 20mm f1.8 and all shots from those lenses were fine. I was shooting mechanical shutter.

Anyone know why I got these results? Was it just the artificial light causing it, or do I have some set incorrectly?
