Music that moves
Since the Stowaway Piano player randomly materializes anywhere on the ship, the piano is built for speed, traveling on a custom dolly. It is outfitted with decorative elements, inspired by vintage steamer travel trunks and steampunk aesthetics.
Bombshell designs and retrofits standard pianos, while maintaining their ability to function as musical instruments. Our team strips and re-stains the finish, then we add the “move” – a custom welded chassis and brake system, push handles, a lid mechanism, moving gears, pipework, flask holders, metalwork, leather strapping, a bulb horn, travel stickers, and other elements.
Show tunes, anyone?
Each piano is further enhanced with a carpet bag filled with amusement: an applause sign on a plunger that sticks to the top of the piano, a Beethoven bust, candelabra, LED flashing disco lights, and anything else that engages the crowd and makes them laugh.
The Bombshell-designed pianos have embarked on Harmony of the Seas, Symphony of the Seas, Independence of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, and Navigator of the Seas, delighting audiences from around the world with an experience on a RCI cruise.
