Not content with bringing smiles to guests’ faces, yesterday AAT Kings (aatkings.com) surprised Australians by unveiling the World’s First Mobile Piano Bar at a special launch event in Sydney.
Until 29th July, a retro-fitted AAT Kings coach, complete with upright grand piano and bar setting will hit the road, journeying from major cities including Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide plus plenty of places in between, from Ballina to Bairnsdale and Toowoomba to Traralgon.
Over a period of four weeks, the Mobile Piano Bar will travel to over 30 regional and coastal towns and cities throughout New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia. Anthony Hayes, Managing Director, AAT Kings said “We love our iPhones and Spotify playlists as much as anyone but we also remember a time when the musical entertainment came from the piano in the corner of the bar of the pub and locals joined in when they knew the words – and often when they didn’t. We want to recreate that sense of community spirit and good old-fashioned fun with our World’s First Mobile Piano Bar.
“At AAT Kings we provide incredible Australian experiences for our guests every day and this particular trip provides us with the opportunity to meet with Aussies in many regional centres and share our 10% off all Guided Holidays offer with them. It also allows them to see – or should I say hear – just how we bring Australia to life. We’re excited to be working with talented local musicians who will be banging out crowd favourites and they will of course be taking requests” said Hayes.
This is the second ‘world first’ mobile coach for AAT Kings, following the hugely popular Mobile Indoor Lawn Bowls Green that traversed Australia in 2014. Anthony Hayes said that while they want Australians to have fun, it’s also an important opportunity to engage with regional travel partners: “We cannot thank the travel trade enough for all they do to help keep AAT Kings on the radar. Ultimately, the Mobile Piano Bar is a chance for us to meet with our regional partners, to provide an experience they can share with their clients and leverage with special booking offers.”
