Since 2006, Matt "Molotov" Bouvier and his wife Miss Dixie DeLish have been traveling coast to coast playing fairs, festivals, carnivals, and Wild West shows with their "Americana Mayhem Roadshow." Sword swallowing, dog tricks, cowboy trick roping, precision bullwhip cracking, and knife throwing are part of their act, which they performed on this gorgeous fold-up theater.
On Monday morning, Matt announced on Facebook that they are selling the fold-up theater for $17,000.
This theater is the real deal. Matt and Dixie bought the stage in 2006 from some folks in Gibsonton, Florida who had been using it as a "Wild West Follies" show since 1997. (In case you didn't know, Gibsonton is a community for carnival workers.)
Matt explains that it takes two people two hours to set the 17'x17' stage up, with no heavy lifting. The stage drops on an electric winch and the marquee raises on hydraulics.
For $17,000, you get the stage with all lights, sound, and its "rough" living quarters (sleeping loft with a shower, sink, microwave, and hot water heater). If you want the 2007 3/4 ton truck they used to pull it, it will cost you $35,000 total.
But, as Matt writes, "You can make it back in one season, we did in 2006."
Boy, oh boy, if this Helios console could talk, it would have some serious stories to tell. Not only did Led Zeppelin use it to record their now-classic hit “Stairway to Heaven,” but many other musical artists have recorded on it too. Now, it will be sold to the highest bidder (it’s expected to fetch […]
I’ve had an interesting run with this motorcycle. It is probably haunted, and really doesn’t want to go to Los Angeles.
If you’re marketing on the web, your Google-fu needs to be strong – and up to date. Without a firm grasp on what drives traffic, you’ll never be able to take the wheel. That’s why even if you know where to put your keywords, a little extra effort goes a long way on any marketer’s […]
Want to keep the dentist away? A little tooth care at morning and night isn’t bad, but it won’t keep the stains from smoking or fried foods at bay for long. If you enjoy your food and want to avoid the consequences, an upgrade from that old analog toothbrush can make a huge difference. Among […]
If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
