RIDES FOR BANDS + A CONTENT MACHINE | SXSW
SERVICES: DESIGN + BUILD, PROGRAMMING, PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT, TALENT WRANGLING
The Band Van is an instant mobile media outpost for all artists, fans, press, and lovechildren in need of a VIP lounge on wheels. A 1989 Ford Econoline with genuine band van roots was reincarnated as the ultimate shagged-out old-school love den, complete with all the creature comforts a rockstar could imagine. Groupies tripped out on the wall to wall shag carpeting, hidden beverage compartments filled with Sweet Leaf Tea, toy instruments, bead curtains, psychedelic accessories, and a ceiling wallpapered in velvet blacklight karma sutra posters. The Band Van shuttled artists to gigs in a whole new way, becoming the ultimate hang spot for traveling musicians and a key resource for music industry and press. A content generating machine, the Band Van was wired to capture high quality sound and video, streaming performances, interviews, and behind the scenes hijinks live, via on-board wifi.
