We design and build innovative, robust road cases, shock racks and drape kits. Simple.
Our Tale: The show must go on (in an orderly fashion).
Our Traits: Crazy about road cases.
- Über-efficient system. Each case is made to exact and consistent dimensions so they fit together and stack perfectly. It's a system approach to touring.
- Top-quality everything. We don't settle for second-best. Each component is hand-picked to ensure that each product is tough and reliable from top to bottom.
- Unbeatable service. We'll bend over backwards for our customers. Need answers? Need customising? Need anything? You got it.
A storage system as exquisitely precise as a Swiss watch.
Fiasco road cases come in wide range of different sizes but—here's the genius part—they're made to fully compatible dimensions. That means, whether stacked or side-by-side, our road cases all fit together, creating a flawless interlocking system. It's like playing Tetris. (And to think your mum said spending summer days playing 80s video games was a waste of time. Pfft!)
It ain't easy being a road case. All that pushing and shoving, stacking and packing. That's why we've engineered ours to the highest industry standards. We use crème de la crème zinc-plated Penn Elcom hardware and maintain that superior standard throughout the design, including lightweight resin-impregnated ply and durable foam lining. So go ahead; do your worst. You won't hurt 'em. They just keep going...and going...and going…
Flawless drapes that go up in a flash.
You won't find a better drape system, guaranteed. Here's why:
- Height markings—pushup poles go to the right height, lickety-split
- Crossbar pockets—no messing around with fiddly ties
- Tabs—dress your pushup poles so they're showing no leg
- Velcro—easy overlapping with velcro that aligns every time
And forget the headache of buying draping, getting each part separately from different manufacturers and then hoping like crazy it'll all work together (c'mon, we all know it won't). Let us make life easy for you. Fiasco drapes come as a kit: drapes, pushups, base plates in one beautiful system. And, of course, it's all housed in our purpose-built road cases. Just roll 'em out and roll 'em back in again. Couldn't be easier.
Exceptional construction, inside and out.
Your most expensive equipment deserves the most comprehensive protection. That's why our shock racks don't cut any corners. Inside, each shock rack is fitted with a Penn Elcom Anti-Vibration Shock Frame—not just foam. We sweat blood minimising the lid-depth to maximise the interior space, so that there's oodles of useable room inside. Outside, things are just as impressive, with lightweight resin-impregnated ply held in place with zinc-plated Penn Elcom hardware. And our shock racks come in both 600 and 800 Series depths, so you can sleep easy knowing that they'll fit nice n' snug with all your other Fiasco road cases no problemo.
Our Team: We get touring.
If there's a problem, Joe will find a solution. That's just the kind of guy he is. Maybe it's having been exposed to so many other cultures; since childhood, he's lived in five countries across Asia, North America and the Pacific. Maybe it's his experience with large events; he's been managing music, corporate and church events since 2007. Maybe it's his business education; he has a couple of degrees including a Masters in Global Studies from Columbia International University (South Carolina, USA). Or maybe it's just in his DNA, born with a knack for logistics and coordinating resources. But whatever the reason, one thing's for sure: when faced with a challenge, Joe knows how to get the job done.
Head of Design
Quality, accuracy, rigour—these are a few of Matt's favourite things. Oh, and did we mention rock n' roll? Having trained in electrical engineering and robotics for manufacturing, Matt took his technical expertise to the stage, working with the acts such as Dave Dobbyn, Brooke Fraser and Rapture Ruckus in tours throughout New Zealand and the USA. Then he ran off and joined the circus—Cirque du Soleil, to be exact—working for 4 years in the automation department on the Cirque show Zaia in Macau. Described by one client as "the guy with the German precision", Matt now channels his obsession with quality into designing legendary road cases and drapes. Before a product gets to you, it has to get past Matt first.
Dude loves people. The whole reason Brett got into sales was because, after five years farming, he came to the profound realisation that cows aren’t as fun to talk to as people (Yeah, he actually said that). Since then, he has sold cars, appliances, and sports shoes. His most recent gig lasted over thirteen years, so why make the leap to selling road cases? Brett wanted to be part of an innovative company fuelled by grit and passion. And this guy knows a thing or two about grit and passion: in recent years he’s adopted a tough workout regime that has taken him from “lie-in man” to ironman. So, rest assured, whatever you need, Brett knows how to go the extra mile…or 140 miles.
Hilly pretty much embodies the Fiasco ethos: organised, efficient, and a teensy bit obsessed with storage. For most of her professional life, she has been making office systems run like a well-oiled machine. And that knack for workplace efficiency is why she’s our administrative go-to gal. Her role entails being a hub. Stock oversight, warehouse dispatches, shipping admin, manufacturer comms, deadline management—she does it all, making this place hum. When not at Fiasco, you'll often find her skyping her American family, hanging out with her Kiwi family, or woodworking—making shelves, pot racks, and attic space (told ya: obsessed with storage!).
Been there, done that. Toured with Cirque du Soleil? Check. Been in charge of automation there? Yep. Specialised in industrial electrical? Absolutely. Travelled the world? Ah-huh (almost everywhere except Antarctica). Ash has pretty much maxed out his bucket list, so when invited to work for Fiasco back home in New Zealand, he knew it was an offer he couldn’t refuse. He traded in his suitcases for road cases. Nowadays, you’ll find him applying his natural-born talent for all things mechanical and technical to designing killer Fiasco products with CAD or tinkering with his bike after thrashing it at one of Cambridge’s famous cycling spots.
Financial Support Manager
Our book-balancing rockstar. We liked Rebecca so much, we tailored the job around her skill-set. She’s a real-deal chartered accountant. So, yeah, she could be working at some hotshot accounting firm, but she’d rather be here. Why? Cos she digs our vibe. After years at big firms like Deloitte, Rebecca brought her mad accounting skills to lil ol’ Fiasco—and hasn’t looked back. Here, she can apply the full range of her accounting know-how in a work environment that’s creative and family-friendly (which is kinda important since, in her words, life these days “pretty much revolves around baby naps”).
