Everyone wants something, but I’ve never heard of a request like this.
No, it’s not a new guitar, not a drum kit, or even the intersection between the two.
The Junxion Box is a product of Seattle-based Junxion. You plug a cellular broadband data card into it, and the box broadcasts a Wi-Fi signal.
Why does Styx want one of these?
Here’s the response, typos and all:
“Some of these gigs in the middle of a race-track or wheverever they can put a stage don’t have internet connections. No connection, no styxcrew cameras. Yes, I know it’s hard to imagine a world without the cameras, but it happens from time-to-time. This box will also allow a connection when vehicles (bus) are moving since it is cellular technology. Ahh yes … a connection on a 20 hour bus ride….”
Perhaps they’ll get their wish when they play at Chateau Ste. Michelle Aug. 23.
