We had the enormous pleasure of sharing the BoomCase at the Food Network, New York City Food and Wine Festival (NYCWFF). For two days world renowned chefs, culinary rock-stars and media personalities had a chance to experience BoomCases first hand as a part of the “Thank You Lounge” curated by GBK Productions.
The festival took place at Pier 92 in a 130,000 foot pavilion filled with chefs and wine makers prepared to wow you with small bites and signature drinks. Wine enthusiasts, food-bloggers, editors, and restaurant industry leaders enjoyed a variety of rare and cult favorite brands with a range of diverse offerings from Japanese wagu beef to New Orleans Pralines (this explains the mardi gras beads we found in our suitcases). Cooking demonstrations played on flat screens from multiple stages as Food Network stars did what they do best in front of live audiences.
In the GBK Thank you Lounge we had the opportunity to share the Boom with Emeril Lagasse, Marcus Samuelsson, Patti Labelle, Neil Patrick Harris, Rachael Ray, Andrew Zimmern, Adam Richman and many more on their way to and from cookbook signings and shows. The response was incredible and watching the way each guest interacted with the BoomCases created the need for this post.
Rachael Ray won the award for longest “Wooow,” and we’re happy to know Chef Marcus Samuelsson is a vintage suitcase collector. Can’t wait to get started on all of the cases for our new fans. Check out the pictures to see more from the event and thank you to everyone who stopped by. We’re also glad we were able to DJ from our BoomCase, and kept everyone in the suite dancing.
Need a new radio for your Vintage Ford? Your Porsche? Morris Minor? We got you covered. Instead of putting a garish new car stereo in, many people have been opting for a BoomCase. This gives you the classic look while removing the hassle of running wire and cutting holes for speakers. Shoot us an email if you have questions about which BoomCase will fit best in your car.
Introducing our latest Polished Zero Halliburton BoomCase. Originally these solid aluminum suitcases have a matte finish to them. After countless hours of polishing we are able to create a mirror like finish on these beautiful vintage suitcases. One is now available in our online store and a few more on the way.
Introducing a new section on our website “Featured BoomCase Owners” ! We wouldn’t be here without their support and we love how diverse they are. So each month we will be showcasing a couple of BoomCase owners and the what, when and where of their BoomCase. Plus some interesting stories like our first featured owner Lisa Busby, a professor of Music at Goldsmiths in London, who uses her BoomCase for portable sound art projects. Or how Swizz Beatz bought Julian Hines BoomCase directly from him after hearing it.
Check out the new section here – LINK – and if you are a BoomCase owner and we have not contacted you yet – feel free to shoot us an email if you would like to share your story. Thanks for all the support everyone!
Over the years we have been creating home and outdoor vintage trunk sound systems for various business and homes. Now we are offering them direct on our website! The trunks can be fitted with turntables, batteries for outdoor use and are still able to fully close.Take a look at the few examples below and learn more in our online store (LINK).
Introducing our latest take on vintage suitcases – “WoodGrain” BoomCases – We take the suitcases and remove the outer layer to expose the beautiful wood frame. Then we can either stain the wood any color or just oil rub them to bring out the natural color and grain. Here are a few examples and check out our online store to see more.
Happy New Year! Big thanks to everyone who helped make 2014 our busiest year yet.

We are excited to be a part of Gorilly’s Beta launch in San Francisco along with Topo Designs and DODOcase. Gorilly (www.gorilly.com) is an innovative new web application that lets people try products (like BoomCase) in person before buying them online (you would buy directly through The BoomCase website).
With Gorilly, you can try a BoomCase in person and get feedback from an actual product owner – it’s as simple as two people meeting! It’s a cool way to get a feel for the quality of BoomCase products in person, and then pick the one you want on our website. The Beta is just in San Francisco for now – take a look at www.gorilly.com. If you are in SF sign up and share : )
