about tet'nus flaming art car

Born out of a country home basement, Tet'nus is a machine built to impress.  Back lounge seats six. Top floor houses either DJ space or dance floor.  She has a delicate shag-lined roof, playful lighting, and of course, flaming longhorns.  She carries around her own sound-system when requested and provides a stunning backdrop to any performance.

Please fill out the contact form at the bottom to find out how she can provide an amusing accoutrement to your party space.


The rusty iris

New to our family is The Rusty Iris - a double-decker, mobile art venue whose purpose is to unite, heal, and inspire.  She's under construction at the moment and has limited availability but please check her out. Give us a buzz if you have an idea of how she could amplify YOUR grander mission.
