Here's our social media accounts, we are pretty active but sometimes not.
In 2012 the bracket was just Sharpie'd onto the sliding door of the rig. How far we've come! haha. ⛹🏽♀️🛒🍕⏳
THANK YOU ALL FOR ANOTHER YEAR OF RIGSKETBALL RIPPING!
A special thanks to Jodie Beechem for working every minute of games tirelessly tracking who's in what band and if they just made a 3 or not! She also made all of the band ID cards as well as did about 1,000 other things to make this year's tournament possible!
Rigsketball is not just about music and basketball, it takes an elite force of painters, illustrators, and designers. Our team is THE BEST: Wooden Cyclops did the shirt and general poster design and ripper pin designs, Hunter Armstrong painted the rig, the bracket, and the big signs, Jodie Beechem did the comp tape packaging layout and track listing design, Showdeer did all the show posters and digital design for all things Rigsketball Musicfest!
The hangarounds killed it! Huge thanks to Boone Clifford Howard, Ryan Neighbors, Michelle Hemingway, Amanda Flowers, Nate, David Streit, and everyone else for being around for as many jokes, good conversations, and crazy shots between games as possible over the course of the six day event!
Photography/videography champs this year were Todd Walberg, Veronica Rose Video and Photography, Ingrid Renan, and Michelle Hemingway! We wouldn't be Rigsketball without all the moments they all magically capture!
The one and only Steve Herrell made Rigsketball Musicfest sound and look amazing! We can't stress this enough, Steve CRUSHED IT and brought in all the sound and lights to make Rigsketball Musicfest possible and amazing!
Bg thanks to Karl and all the other amazing members/volunteers at The East Portland Eagles Lodge! It is a special place run by the most thoughtful, kind, competent, and community thinking people you could hope to throw a thing with. They were so down for everything we wanted to do and put in TONS of work to help us make it happen! Go become a member!
Another special thanks to Jesse Flash Ditson for making our website signups and bracket work! This seems simple but is sort of a Herculean task because there are no existing technologies for signing up 32 bands for a basketball style bracketed tournament. Jesse crushes and we love him!
Thanks to Alec for reaching out to make the trophy and
