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.

Thanks!

One of the keys to our success at Calzone-Anvil is our loyal customers. This Thanksgiving, we want to send out our most sincere thanks to our clients and friends who made our company and mission possible. John Bruton at Sound Associates sent us a great story about his experiences with Calzone-Anvil in both his personal and professional life. Check it out:

I recently saw an ad for Calzone where an early model of the Anvil Case was still in use and on the road.  Well I couldn’t help think about the case that I received from my now present employer back in the summer of 1984.  Richard Fitzgerald of Sound Associates, Inc. was so grateful for my band playing at his daughter’s Sweet 16 party that he gave the band members Sound Associates hats and four of these beauties.

The drummer used his as a portable bar and my buddy Joe and I, as guitar players, used ours to carry our stomp effects pedals, tuners, guitar strings and stuff.

Well the band is just a collection of wonderful memories and I can’t find my old Sound Associates hat anywhere but my case is as solid as the day I received it over 27 years ago!

Now I work with my buddy Joe at Sound Associates, Inc. where my generous boss Richard Fitzgerald trusts only Calzone Cases to protect some of the most expensive pro-amp racks and consoles in the pro-sound business!  My hair is turning grey, the band is history but I still play guitar out and about and I realize that some things have not changed.  My Anvil case is still making the rounds and so am I!

Thanks John and Joe for the awesome story and Richard for your continued business throughout the years! Happy Thanksgiving everyone, be safe!
