The Magic Van

 

The Magic Van program is on hiatus for now (we sold our beloved diesel box van in March 2013). The proceeds of the sale will go toward buying a new gasoline-powered van that’s smaller and easier for bands to drive. Stay tuned for Magic Van 2.0.
**
Our formidable Box Van beast takes musicians on tour across the pacific northwest and beyond, allowing bands who don’t have a van to live the touring dream. We provide this service FREE for approved bands.

The Magic Van has taken bands as far as California, Montana and Idaho, and has served more than a dozen Bellingham bands, including:

The All-Nighters
Learning Team
Yogoman Burning Band
Heligoats
Lampost Revival
Dead Hookers
Muppet Fetish
Horse Knot
RHOMBU$
Snug Harbor
Blessed Coast
Scumeating
Strangely
The Bad Tenants
