Taking the Big Easy

New Orleans was a blast starting off with a meal of jambalaya and alligator po-boys. We popped along to the Fried Chicken Festival (the main stage of which, we noted proudly, was an SL250 set up by our friends at Center Staging). With full bellies, we headed off to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street,…

Lightning-Fast Safety Response

Lightning may not strike twice, but striking once is bad enough. Thanks to the diligence of Stageline tech Francis Kopajko, when lightning struck a SAM440 during the leadup preparations for an evening show in Rouyn-Noranda on August 11, the stage had already been evacuated, and no one was hurt. Mid-afternoon that day, technical people were…

Staging and having a Good Time

Sting wasn’t performing—he was just one of the guests, and he spent the evening dancing with his wife to a lineup that included Earth, Wind & Fire, John Fogerty, and headliner Bon Jovi. The venue? A backyard in Greenwich, Connecticut. The event? A billionaire’s sixtieth birthday. “We had to use a barge and a crane…

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…

POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE, SMOKE AND MIRRORS

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. It can do a lot, and it always does. But that means every season has a much greater impact on a Stageline stage than it would on…
