Stray sponsors top Kiwi band tour
Stray hop on hop off adventure bus network has sponsored one of New Zealand’s hottest bands, ‘Steriogram’, on its nationwide tour around New Zealand.
Stray has provided a bus and driver for the Kiwi band while they are promoting the release of their new album ‘This is not the target market’.
Steriogram, known for their hit ‘Walkie Talkie Man’, approached Stray when they were looking for transportation big enough for the whole band and their entourage, together with a driver who was up for living the ‘rock style’ lifestyle for awhile.
The crew at Stray saw this as a win win situation which could really benefit their customers. MD Stray, Neil Geddes said: “Steriogram is one of NZ’s top bands and we were only too happy to help them out.
The partnership has meant we’ve been able to pass on some great perks to our customers and travel agents - from free copies of the new album to free tickets to the relevant Steriogram concerts.
“We’re all about showcasing the best of New Zealand and Steriogram are great reflection of Kiwi music! For the band, well, they get a great trip in one of our Stray buses with a top driver/tour guide, as well as gaining exposure to Stray’s international customers and developing an offshore audience”, Geddes added.
Stray driver Kerry, who has been driving the band says he has been having the time of his life; “I know the country like the back of my hand but travelling with a rock band has made it a whole different experience! The band has even got me up on the stage a few times and I loved it!’ he said.
