Meet: The Bang ShowBy Brooke Geery • Jun 28th, 2010 • Category: Features, Latest, Meet
You’ve seen the teasers. You’ve wished they were your friends. And now we actually talked to the guys behind the Bang Show. After emailing with both Maxwell Scott (who runs the email) and Nick Brewer (who “invented” the crew) and getting several 1 am phone calls from Andrew Brewer, we’re pretty much down with the guys. In short, this crew seems to know what snowboarding is about, and they take that shit really seriously. In fact, we give this video at least a 75% of actually coming out.
Location: Colorado, Utah, New York, Reno, Mass, Minnesota, and New Jersey
Riders: Ben Capron, Mike Goodwin, Andrew Brewer, Maxwell Scott, Charlie Deptula, Nick Brewer, Billy Mackey, Greg Sudac, Kyle Fischer, Josh Bishop, Alex Cutler, Jackson Fowler, Eric Messier, Ben Rice, Blake Rhodes Reid, Colin Walters, Justin Keniston, and some other homies.
Approximately how much whiskey would you say you drank this past season?
Maxwell: whiskey? we only drink mikes hard
Nick: Enough to single handedly keep the liquor store down the street in business during these difficult economic times. Nothin’ but Canadian Mist.
Did you get your security deposit back on your apartment(s)? If you haven’t moved out yet, do you think you will?
Nick: Is this a trick question?
Maxwell going rogue?
What was the best party of the year?
Nick: Probably this one -
So what will the ratio of partying to snowboarding be in the video?
Nick: Probably the same ratio of guys to girls at one of our parties. Roughly 10 to 1.
Why did you decide to name your video the same name as Pat Moore’s contest at Waterville?
Maxwell: ‘cuz we like to rip people’s shit off
Nick: Ha ha no, about 3 years ago we lived in a house and there was this little room that just had a skylight and a bed in it. It’s where the homies crashed and the chicks got chopped. Thus, The Boneyard.
What about the name Bang Show. Where did that come from?
Nick: A few years back we were actually thinking of names for a future snowboarding video and we wanted to come up with a name that could easily be confused as a porno. Eventually we narrowed it down to The Bang Show and Genital Hospital, which may already be a porno, and The Bang Show won out. From there we made a blog and some stickers and the rest is history.
You guys seem cool, ever consider moving somewhere less douchey than Breck?
Maxwell: Oh right, like Salt Lake?
Nick: Ha ha, but seriously a lot of us don’t even live in Breck. That place sucks ass
What’s good about living in Breckenridge?
Nick: Absolutely nothing! Breckenridge is everything I hate about snowboarding rolled into one. First of all, the mountain itself is always cold, windy, crowded and full of douches. Yes the terrain park is amazing if you ever get there. You have to take a 15 minute bus ride and a 20 minute gondola ride just to get on the mountain. From there you’re looking at a half an hour lift line and roughly an hour and 30 minutes after leaving your car you’re finally taking your first run. Second, and arguably the most important reason why Breck sucks ass is because there isn’t an attractive girl within 60 miles. Basically, Breckenridge is a brosexual’s paradise.
What can we expect from Back to the Boneyard?
Nick: Hopefully 30 minutes of non-stop entertainment.

Who do you think will have the best part?
Nick: Everyone. Were hoping that this won’t be one of those videos where you skip half the parts because they’re so ridiculously boring.
Is this your first movie? Why did you decide to make a movie?
Maxwell: We’ve never done anything before, we put out teasers as a joke but people actually liked them so I guess we’re making a video now…
Nick: Yea, we’ve never done anything before, which means the movie will probably suck. But we’re making this video for the same reason everybody else is in snowboarding and that is to make lots and lots of money.
What do you think makes a snowboard movie good?
Maxwell: less snowboarding
Nick: ha ha. The ICKS dudes couldn’t have said it any better. A movie should be entertainment first and snowboarding second. And a good soundtrack always helps
When will it be done, and where can people see it?
probably fall ? August or September? We’ll have premiers/parties all around for people to get fucked up at. Like Salt Lake? New York, Denver/Boulder, Breck, Reno/Tahoe, Portland, Minneapolis, LA, Jersey Shore, Boston, Buffalo NY, Baton Rouge….. check our webpage for updates, the blog, or the vimeo page.
