Calzone and Pro Locker at the Baseball Trade Show

Posted on: December 12th, 2011

The MLB Winter Meeting just wrapped up in Dallas, TX, and Calzone teamed up with Pro Locker for the event. Each year, the Baseball Trade ShowTM is held in conjunction with the Baseball Winter MeetingsTM to showcase various business enterprises throughout the baseball world. From the website:

Representatives include owners, general managers, marketing and promotions directors, stadium operations personnel, coaches, organizers, buyers, and more. Representatives make purchases for equipment, player apparel, retail merchandise, promotional items and services at the show or just check out the latest baseball products on the market.

Calzone had the opportunity to team up with Pro Locker, which offers various fan engagement games to stadiums across the country. Calzone built the units that encase the Fan Experience Games, which you can see in the pictures below. Click the photos for full size.

Tough Enough for the U.S. Marines

Sometimes it’s necessary to make a house call, sometimes it’s an honor. Calzone Case Vice President Vin Calzone had the opportunity to travel to Marine Barracks, Washington D.C. to assess the equipment of the Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, Corps Silent Drill Platoon, and Color Guard to determine how to make sure their instruments and gear made it around the country safely. The Drum and Bugle Corps travel more than 50,000 miles and perform in over 400 events annually, so it made sense to trust Calzone to protect their instruments and equipment. The Corps Silent Drill Platoon, which perform a unique silent precision drill with M1 Garand rifles,  also travel extensively between Washington D.C., training in Yuma, Arizona, and around the country for various performances. Here at Calzone we’re proud and honored to supply the Marines with serious protection for their instruments throughout their travels and performances.

Buckets ‘n Boards on tour with Disney Cruises

Posted on: December 6th, 2011

While we pride ourselves on offering serious protection for the road, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for laughs. Buckets ‘N Boards, a comedy and music duo consisting of Matt Levingston and Gareth Sever, will be headlining on the Disney Magic cruise ship for five weeks starting this December. The family-friendly show consists of a unique blend of percussion and comedy, where the duo’s drumming and tap dancing take center stage. The trip to the cruise required a couple heavy duty cases for their props, which, as you can see in the pictures, Matt and Gareth were very pleased with.

Electronic music? We have you covered

It’s true that Calzone and Anvil started out as the go-to rock ‘n’ roll road cases for bands from Aerosmith to ZZ Top, but we’ve been protecting DJ’s equipment for almost as long. Our clients include Pioneer DJ (who trusted us with a recent trade show display), and even DJ Skribble of MTV fame. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s this: DJs are demanding. That’s why we design most DJ cases completely custom to meet all of your needs.

Recently we designed a custom DJ console case for Fusion Enterprises, and they were thrilled with the result. Fusion specializes in full-service lighting and production for private events in the New York City and Long Island area. Check out their gallery to view some of their work.
