Mobile Music Machine
A community effort, made from recycled materials, and pedal powered, the Mobile Music Machine was a unique way to showcase local talent as well as advocate the importance of bike culture. It was a party wherever we went.
Not only did we build this monster and ride it all over the place, we filmed every musician and event we took it to. If you weren't lucky enough to see the thing live, you could catch performances on Youtube and LiveFromMemphis.com We also created a mini doc that was premiered at our bicycle festival, Bikesploitation II.
Originally conceived for Live From Memphis, I was inspired by my friends at Rock the Bike. The recycled bike parts and consulting were contributed by Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop, and the fabrication of the vehicle itself was done by our good friends at the National Ornamental Metal Museum. Additional fabrication provided by Yvonne Bobo Studio. The first round of musicians in 2011 were sponsored by the Downtown Memphis Commission.
