Saluting an Older Brother in the Business

The concert by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band–founder John McEuen was coming up, and they needed to get a stage into the middle of an amphitheatre, but they couldn’t afford to build one. The solution was obvious to Gary Justesen, owner of Salt Lake City’s Oasis Stage Werks: they’d bring in the SL250—on a crane. “Your…

Your Chance to Get Dirty

…and Get Paid Doing It Most people like an opportunity to go out and get dirty now and then. But the question is, how much do you like it? And how dirty are you willing to get? If the answer is “I’m not happy until I come home a bit muddy, a tad soaked from…

WINE & SONG

In Czech, it’s “Víno, ženy, a zpěv.” In Polish, “Wino, kobiety i śpiew,” and in Hindi, “Sur, Sura, Sundari.” Johann Strauss had a waltz called “Wein, Weib und Gesang.” In more than a dozen languages across Europe and into Asia, there is an expression that translates to the English “Wine, women, and song.” While the…

END OF THE SEASON

A Stageline mobile stage is equipment that combines the performance and durability of a heavy machinery vehicle with the range and high performance of a portable staging rig.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

The Fort McMurray, Alberta wildfire of 2016 has been burning since May 1. It has been under control, at least, since July 5, but by that point, beginning May 1, it had already torn through 590,000 hectares (1,500,000 acres) of forests and city alike, destroying up to 90% of the homes in some neighbourhoods of…

90% Off

As far as discounts go, 90% is a big one. You don’t even get that much of a cut off of Halloween chocolate in mid-November. But one of the things we’re proudest of with Stageline mobile stages is that they routinely cost 90% less to install and get ready than other traditional ground-support solutions. The…

SUPERDOME MEETS SUPER STAGE DEPLOYMENT

How fast do you think you could set up one of Stageline’s SL100 mobile stages? The New Orleans Saints gave Dolph Federico and his team at Pelican Events twenty minutes after a game in the Superdome. That’s right, one third of an hour. From the closing whistle of the game to the first note of…

Yes, Can Do!

Last week we told the story of Dolph Federico and his team at Pelican Events steering an Stageline SL100 through the six-inch clearance of the New Orleans Superdome’s goal-posts and setting the stage up in twenty narrow minutes. However, Pelican Events has done far more than that one breathtaking deployment—in fact, they’ve made a reputation…

A true Character

“Officially I was a stage tech,” says New Orleans Glen “Monster” Warner, as he reflects on the many facets of his long career in the music industry. “With Bob Dylan, I was his official Corona beer man. With David Lee Roth, I carried him on a surfboard!” A Zelig-style figure in the world of arena…

What about lifting capacity?

With ever-tightening deadlines and an increased concern for safety, lifting capacity is an important factor to consider when choosing the appropriate stage. But what exactly does it entail? Lifting capacity allows a stage structure to have its roof section lifted with loads already hung from it. They make it possible to secure sound equipment, lighting, and banners…
