I’ve told you about several of the hardware systems that we have available for rental through Rent What?, from kabuki solenoid systems to traveler track.

Without Warning

By |May 27th, 2011|Authors, links, News|1 Comment

Here’s something you probably don’t know – Megan sings in the band Without Warning.  The band has recently launched a new website – check it out for bios of the band members, a play list, and much more.

If you are a fan of rock and metal, I’m sure you’ll like the play list, with songs from Ozzy Osborne, Van Halen, Journey, and many more (I personally love Megan’s lead vocals on Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”).

On a personal note, I love the band’s logo, designed by our favorite artist, John Rios of Grafix Jam.  Check it out!

Think of That

By |May 24th, 2011|links, News|0 Comments

I recently learned about an interesting website and blog called “Why Didn’t I Think of That?”, which focuses on stories of business and entrepreneurial success.  The story of how Megan started Sew What? was recently featured on the website as well as in a blog post (the third installment in a series on Business Axioms) titled “Pursue Your Passion.” 

I especially enjoyed the blog post.  The author, Benjamin Christopher, makes a good case for turning your passion into a business, without sugar coating the challenges of doing so.  It seems that there are so many people who are passionate about something but never think outside the box on how that passion could translate into a business.  And there are probably just as many who think that starting a business will be easy as long as it is based on something you are passionate about.  Christopher is both realistic and encouraging in the post, and he offers concrete examples of entrepreneurs who have been successful in turning their passion into a business.

I’m looking forward to reading the first two installments of this blog series – the first titled “Rethinking Your Industry” and the second titled “Apply New Technology to an Existing Product.”

Rent What? on the Road

By |May 20th, 2011|Company|0 Comments

It is so much fun when our clients send us photos of our gear on the road – we’ve seen our Sew What? drapery bags across the globe, from Germany to Qater and beyond.

Now, Rent What? has gotten into the act, with customers sending photos of the Rent What? bags.  Recently, Joe from the Glee Tour sent us this photo of a Rent What? drapery bag, that he took on the road with him.

Thanks for forwarding the photo, Joe!  Seeing photos like this makes us all feel like we are on the road as well.

Road Ready Traveler Track

By |May 16th, 2011|Products|0 Comments

Continuing with my series of posts on hardware collections available for rent through Rent What?, today I thought I’d tell you about traveler track.  Most people think of traveler track as a permanent installation, but it is actually a terrific option for tours when clamped to truss.

Rental Hardware Collection – Traveler Track

Specifics:

  • Variable Width
  • Rope Operated or Walk Along
  • One Way or Bi-Parting
  • Strong Steel Construction
  • Powercoated Black
  • Durable, Quiet Carriers
  • 10′ and 5′ Sections for Easy Install
  • “Burgers” Clamp Straight to Truss

Why You’ll Love Our Track:

Just as important as having beautiful curtains is have reliable tracks that support and transport them across the stage. And when the drape fits the track and the track fits the drape, you’re in for a show!

We’re proud to feature a full complement of superior-quality American-made curtain tracks by ADC, one of the premier manufactures of theatrical curtain transport systems and the only brand that has won UL approval.

Available as a rental from the most basic manual walk along to a rope pull system, ADC tracks assure a moving performance at the highest standards.
