For those of us familiar with Vans Warped Tour - we know that the tour is basically like moving a small city every day. Bands, crew, and organizations loads up in busses and vans and haul trailers from city to city to build up and tear down a small town every day. Part of this crew is the catering crew. What few fans recognize from the start is that there’s also a catering band!
This years catering band was BoyMeetsWorld, a pop-rock pop-punk band from Cincinnati, Ohio. The band was hard at work all summer helping set up, serving, and tearing down catering each day of the tour. They drove themselves from city to city and sold CDs to the line before doors. BoyMeetsWorld got the chance to play on the Kevin Says stage several times throughout the tour, including their hometown stop in Ohio.
Bands apply to be the catering band in hopes of gaining exposure to the Warped Tour community. Photographer, Colleen Brent got the chance to meet up with the guys in between their catering shifts to record an acoustic version of “Where The Hell Is Douglas?” for our viewers at UMusicians. Hope you enjoy!
