In 2000, Ernie Ball designed and constructed the first of two self contained mobile stages. Built on custom International Workstar straight trucks, these all-in-one stages come complete with a high quality professional touring sound system, lights, instrument back-line, generators, first class crew, and an independant engineering certified stage and roofing system.
Based on the success of the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands program, these mobile stages were conceived and constructed in house, for musicians by musicians, to give emerging bands a chance to play live. By partnering with impactful tours and festivals throughout North America, the Ernie Ball Mobile Stages have provided a platform for over 12,000 live performances to date.
"It's harder than ever for talented new musicians to gain recognition. Ernie Ball feels that the lifeblood of music is in emerging talent." says Sterling Ball, of Ernie Ball. "We want to support up and coming bands, and give them the opportunity to gain exposure. With the mobile stage, we have taken it one step further every band deserves a place to play.”
Not only have the Ernie Ball Mobile Stages been a staple at the Vans Warped Tour for nearly 20 years, but they have been spotted at SXSW, Punk Rock Bowling, Epicenter, The Malibu Guitar Festival, Emo Night Day, Culture Collide, Target Grand Prix, Furnace Festival, Sprite Liquid Mix Tour, Country Throwdown Tour, Uproar Tour, High School Nation Tour, Moto Madness Tour, Vans Triple Crown Snowboarding Championships, and countless other festivals.
