While in Atlantic city this weekend, I saw a trucking company specializing in loads for the entertainment industry. The name of the company was Stage Call and they are based out of Arizona. The tractors were gorgeous brand spanking new Freightliner. Anyone out there have experience with this kind of trucking? It looks kinda fun.

Ask Rolling Thunder how he likes his job. He knows darned well how ennnnvious I am. I went to a NIN concert at Red Rocks this summer and what do I do? I take photos, not of Trent Reznor. No, no, no. I took photos of the four 53' tractor-trailers he needed, to load all his stuff back up and travel to the next city.

Matt, I grew up in Philly, with the "Philly Sound" as the genre was called. Exposure to great music, concerts, and primo radio stations was tremendous. Where in Philly are you from?

I often wondered how cool that would be to drive one of a bands tour trucks. The big bands always have pristine equipment. but then I looked at it from a Driver only perspective and I really don't think it would be much different, maybe worse. You're traveling city to city, most likely (due to the times of the actual concert) during the night AFTER the road crew gets you all loaded back up, probably 2-3 AM maybe. Then drive to the next city. You have to get your sleep when they are setting up and playing so I would imagine you'd have to hear/feel them loading and unloading and then the concerts that are outdoor venues would be load.

But I too would like to hear first hand from someone that does this type of gig.

I also wonder what it would be like to drive the actual tour buses for them. I would imagine you would be a glorified baby sitter, maid, driver and mechanic,...etc.

Nice! I was born and raised in Bryn Mawr. Spent lots of time all over. I'm guessing you're an Information Society fan? They are a Philly band with the Philly sound. What brought you to Colorado?

Good 'ole Bryn Mawr. I've a cousin who was born and grew up there, long time ago. That's about an hour or so from where I grew up - Montgomery County. I've been all over, actually but Colorado is where I now call home. Don't know Information Society. I'll have to check them out.
