First Report May 4th: DomeCandy, a local business based out of and started by two North Myrtle Beach residents, has been in business a little over a year and is already generating a lot of buzz and positive feedback.
The two friends went into business building custom boomboxes out of reused materials. Most of their creations are made from old suitcases but the duo has ventured out into making pieces out of things such as guitar and makeup cases. Additionally, the two use parts from classic speakers to further the reduce, reuse, recycle mentality they share.
Bobby “Dr. XactO” Williams, one of the co-founders, talked with ListenUpMB.com recently and said, “Basically, what we do is we rescue vintage speakers and vintage suitcases and resurrect them to make portable sound,”
DomeCandy's mission is:
To spread the love of music by offering a unique and creative alternative to portable sound. Whether your buying an already designed and assembled RockBox or our Do It Yourself Boombox Creation Kit, DomeCandy Lab wishes to provide you with all the knowledge and support necessary for your production.
