Blowing Out Key West

Blowing Out Key West

4343684_lSo you know how we rock? We rock hard, a lot, and we will rock hard until the day we die. We are the Quabbin community band, and we just blew the roof off west key west!

You had me, Jason, Ryan, Bobby, and the new kid, Banana.

Our agent told us we have to get something to set us apart, so we hired a kid named banana to dress up as a banana at our concerts you know why? Cause our shows are freaking bananas!

So we got invited this past weekend to show up at a place in Keywest and run through a show, and the air was electric! There was a thunderstorm.

We got out there, and we did our thang, and we had some salmon, and we went out on some boats with some guys claiming to be record producers, and the rest from there is history. Seriously, it’s history, I don’t remember what happened, and we can’t figure out where Banana went, but we are going back north after that!

Anyway, we’ve got a couple of shows coming up, and we are going to list them here:

PeterRumble Pit in Lorena, FL

Red Sky Arena in Atlanta

The Grecian Leaf, in New York (Clothing Optional Venue)

Check us out if you get the chance. Otherwise, we are going to talk about the future of the band.

So you guys remember Banana from a few paragraphs ago? Well, he’s no longer with us, and we need to hire a new banana guy. Luckily we have an extra banana suit so if you know any friends who are in between 6’4 and 7’0 and they want a nonprofit job rocking out 24/7, send them our way.

Alright, that’s it for us guys. Remember if you are looking for a great selection of houses in Key West, then call us!

Buying a Knuckle Boom Truck

Buying a Knuckle Boom Truck

Hello, guys, Peter Thomson here with Quabbin Community Band. So my buddy Brian in Orlando has an expanding trash removal company and is looking for a knuckle boom truck to add to his business. I have never heard of the term knuckle boom truck, but when he explained to me what it was, I had a clear picture in my head. It is a truck with a trash grapple that uses that grapple to lift up debris to the back of the truck and take it for disposal. He asked me if I can do a quick internet search to see if I can find anything for him, and I quickly stumbled upon the company Petersen Industries that is located not too far from him.

He offered to pay me to help him out in the acquisition of his new knuckle boom truck, so I thought why not make a quick buck. When I called Petersen Industries, they were nice enough to give me all the details of exactly what I was looking for. They explained to me the different types of trucks that they can offer me and all different variations. They also explained to me all of the various uses of the trucks, which was very insightful. At the end of the day, I was able to give all of that information to Brian, and he was very appreciative.

Petersen Industries also offers maintenance on purchased knuckle boom trucks. If for some reason the crane or something else on the truck begins to be faulty, you can bring your truck into Petersen Industries, and they will take care of the problem for you. Their prices are also some of the best in the industry. From the purchase of the actual truck itself to the maintenance, the pricing that Petersen Industries offers its clients is amazing.

What if you need one of these knuckle boom trucks just for the weekend? What then? You are not going to spend all of that money just to purchase a truck that you are only going to use once or twice. That is why Petersen Industries offers rentals for all of their trucks. If you are not a professional in the industry and are looking to use one of the trucks for maybe a day or two, this is probably your best option. The rental prices are just how you would expect any type of pricing from Petersen Industries to be, affordable. These prices cannot be beaten by anybody else in the industry!

Whether you are in the business of trash pickup, or you need a large amount of debris picked up from your property, Petersen Industries has the right knuckle boom trucks for you. With the choice to either buy one of these trucks or to rent them, they have something for anybody. I would recommend the services and products of Petersen Industries to anybody looking for these types of trucks for themselves or their business. From the phone operator to the acquisition of the truck, the whole process was nice and smooth, just how it should be.

Roll Forming Company

Roll Forming Company

Hello everybody, Peter Thomson here with Quabbin Community Band. Last week I found an old antique refrigerator, and it looked so cool that I wanted to keep it and have it in the garage where the band and I practice. The only problem was that the refrigerator is old and is not functioning properly. I took the refrigerator to the local antique restoration shop to see if I can get it restored. The man told me that he can make it all nice and pretty but that one of the parts is missing to make it work properly. When I asked him what we can do about that, he referred me to a company that can create parts for you. He referred me to what is known as a roll forming company. This company, in particular, was an excellent company to work with, Roller Die + Forming.

When I called Roller Die + Forming, we had a lengthy conversation about what my options are to be able to restore my antique refrigerator. They told me I need to know the specification of the part that is missing, and they would be able to create it. After doing a little research, I found the exact specifications of that part and was able to give it to them. As a roll forming company, Roller Die + Forming was able to manufacture the exact part that I needed to restore the refrigerator. After I had received the part, I took it back to the antique restoration shop, and we were able to fix the refrigerator at last.

As a roll forming company, Roller Die + Forming has many different parts and products that they can produce. They can create parts for almost anything you can think of from parts for various appliances to parts to help fix a truck trailer. If you can think of something that you need, whatever part it may be, Roller Die + Forming can probably create it for you. That is the beauty of it.

Another use of a roll forming company like Roller Die + Forming is the capability to create parts for people in the healthcare industry. If you work in a building or live in an apartment, the elevator might get damaged and start malfunctioning. If this happens, and the elevator needs a new part, you can call Roller Die + Forming, and they will produce a replacement part. They are also able to produce parts for different government and military industries, and we all know how important that is.

Whether it is providing a part for an antique, or needing to produce a part for some sort of office furniture, Roller Die + Forming is the company for you. They are one of the best and most affordable roll forming company that I have crossed in the path to fixing my antique refrigerator. I can recommend their services to so many different people in different professions from car mechanics to government officials. They made the whole repair process for me and my antique refrigerator so easy, and I cannot thank the people at Roller Die + Forming enough.

Hey everyone, Peter Thompson here with Quabbin Community Band. So last week, as we were making our way back up North, our faithful van started making some more sounds. This time, the sound was coming from under the hood. We felt like there has been something wrong with the transmission for a while because getting the van in gear has always felt a little problematic. We knew that our van was in serious need of some transmission repair. As we were driving by we notices a shop that seemed to specialize in transmission repair. The shop is called AMS Jet Transmissions, and we are glad that we found it.

As we pulled up to AMS Jet Transmissions, we noticed that the shop seemed very organized and clean, an excellent sign when it comes to a car repair shop. We walked into the shop and started to explain to the head mechanic what the problem was, and he suggested that we get a transmission fluid change. We took his word for it and left the shop.

These guys specialize in transmission repair, so maybe they can fix the problem without any hiccups.
