Bye, bye winter and icy roads! How to conquer a hill?

Written by The Haaks, April 7, 2017

Guest Blog, no 3 from the Haaks

Very soon spring is here and the winter season is over – for this time. Yesterday, we did the last after ski gig in the Swedish mountains. We had an amazing response from the audience and the band was really on top. To the delight of the skiers there were loads of snow this weekend, but we were not that delighted since the roads around Sälen got very slippery – and our bus got stuck at the lodge! However, in these situations Onspot automatic snow chains are our best friends. Johan, the driver, just pushed the button and off we went uphills in a cloud of snow.

Touring in the winter landscape

Guest Blog, no 2 from the Haaks

After quite some vacation we’re on tour again! In a way, the winter is our favourite season when we perform in the different ski resorts, and the audiences are always wonderful. Our first week of the tour was spent in the classical hotel Sälens Högfjällshotell, in Sweden. The sun was shining, the slopes were filled with skiers, and already by four o’clock, the after ski was crowded with partygoers. A very special thing about this week was us co-arranging a corporate event, resulting in 250 happy hairdressers on the show.

Although Onspot automatic snow chains are mostly used in transportation trucks and rescue vehicles, of course there are other users who also need to make it in time. This week’s guest blogger, Jonas and Henrik from the Haaks band, points out that also showbiz has the very same need. Enjoy! / the Onspot team

Preparing for winter road conditions

We’re Haaks, a show band who have been playing full-time for the past 24 years. It’s me Jonas (bass & vocals), my brother Johan (guitar & vocals), Mattias (keyboards), Roger (drums) and me Henrik (sound & light).

From being mostly a night club band, we’re now doing more and more company events and happenings. Especially, we look forward to the after beach gigs in the summer and the after ski gigs in the winter. Nothing compares to entertaining people who are on vacation. Summertime, we’re mostly in Swedish Tylösand and Tanumstrand and wintertime is mostly about Swedish and Norwegian ski resorts. All gigs also mean that we spend a lot of time out on the roads and it requires good planning.
