Jumbo Cruiser

OK, we admit that not all tours happen as expected but we have a pretty good hit rate. What some of our customers are saying....

"I have been with a few bus companies in the past but the combination of Russ, Don and the bus is a winner. The band are very comfortable sleeping on the bus and have all commented on the smooth driving. It is not always like that. We have compared the driving with other tours where we all of course have a story to tell of buss woes. As you know, I needed a great combination of crew and transport to meet the bands high expectations. I think we surpassed that. As a TM, I have had an easy time"

- Mark Cappelen-Eitzen - Tour Manager for Aviv Geffen

"Thank you again for the busses and very cool drivers. They did a great job and were a pleasure to work with."

- Stephen Shaw - Tour Manager for Kid Rock
"Everything is going great here. We all LOVE the busses and the drivers. I must say that the pictures on your web site don't do them justice, the busses are the best I have ever ridden in for a European Tour. Thank you so much!"
- Rocko Reedy - Production manager of Def Leppard

"Tour went really well, Tim's a star, and everyone liked the bus"

- Alan Sullivan - Tour Manager for Moby

"Thank you to Steve and all the guys at Jumbo Cruiser who made our 2 day Eastern European tour so much better than it already was Tim and Phil were amazing drivers without a single complaint from any of the band or crew with an amazing knowledge of the bus and the ins and outs their timing was perfect to and from each gig, the beds were comfortable, the entertainment systems were spot on, the layout of the bus worked well for everyone and the Megaloader space saved us time and money with road freight options. Thanks again and look forward to doing business with you in the future"

Joel Stanley, TM for Gorillaz Sound System

"I'd like to sincerely thank you and our driver Don Stuart for making our European tour such a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Don provided us with an exceptionally smooth ride each night, allowing for much needed rest for all. And he kept the bus in immaculate condition, washing dishes, making beds, and cleaning the entire bus every single day. He also looked after us and taught us many valuable lessons about touring abroad. We thank you both for a great tour and look forward to working with Jumbocruiser and Don in the future."

- Ryan Westbrook, Tour Manager for Brendan Benson

"The bus is amazing man. I've got a bedroom to myself plus beds for guests., and there's a downstairs level with a SingStar, Playstations, TV, DVD Player, and a fridge load of wine - and it's good wine too! I just love that bus ! On Sunday I had the day off and just spent the entire day in my pyjamas, chilling on the bus. I miss it when I'm not there and whenever they try and fly me somewhere I'm like "Nooooooo! My bus! I want my bus!"

- Alexandra Burke, Singer (quoted in a UK national newspaper but it was our bus)

I've never been anything other than completely happy with Jumbocruiser
-Matt DeFilippis - Tour Manager for Drive By Truckers

-Rick Palamino, Tour Manager of Snoop Dogg
"Your coach was the best I have ever been on - bar none."
�Adam Parson, Motörhead Management, Los Angeles
"I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you.Your bus and drivers made the tour a great success and the time you took to go over the mileage before the tour with the new regulations made the trips flawless. Needless to say that I will be calling you for our March 08 UK tour. Thanks again for professionalism"
- Mark Ferguson, Tour Manager of Black Label Society
"Phil was phenomenal and made our Jumbo Cruiser experience one to remember.  The Wildhearts will not use another bus company or driver again.  Long live JumboCruiser!

- Gav McGaughey, TM of The Wildhearts

Thanks from everyone at Belle & Sebastian for all you help on the tour. Big up to both drivers also. Especially to Yorkie who was one of the best drivers I've worked with. Driving was very smooth, bus was spotless every day, he never moaned about anything and had good etiquette around band members.
- Stevie Dreads, Tour Manager of Belle & Sebastian
“Thanks for being, by a wide, wide margin – the best driver/partner I've ever had on either side of the drink in the 14 years I have been doing this.”
- Charles Raggio, Kajmere Sound Recordings, Los Angeles

"I would like to express my gratitude to you and your team for your support, flexibility and hard work at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival. The event was a great success and larger than ever. I was extremely pleased with your high levels of dedication, professionalism and work ethics. As always, it was great working with you and I look forward to the next time."

- Steve Levitt, MD of Production North
" Thanks for the bus it was great. Ted was brilliant, so good that the band won't have any one else to drive their bus in the future. "
- Hans Perrson, Tour Manager for The Servant
"I just wanted to say thanks for all your assistance with our European tour.  It was a great success!  Everyone loved the bus and we all loved Billy.  He was a real trooper who put his head down, barreled through, and got the job done well!  Wish we had more like him in the States. "
- Adam Conde, Tour Manager for George Thorogood & The Destroyers

"For the first time in living memory a Euro/UK bus that all band and crew were happy with – amazing! "

- Nick Mallinson - Manager of Arch Enemy

" Thanks for everything this past couple of weeks, bus was great and Billy was a legend."

Chris Kiely, Tour Manager for Amy Macdonald


"I just wanted to quickly extend my thanks for everything this past week. The bus was fantastic, Yorkie was an absolute pleasure to work with everything from your end was wonderfully straight-forward. I hope that your first Skindred experience was an equally stress-free one and that you'll be happy to let us on your buses again! ;-) "

- Matt Pengelly - Tour Manager of Skindred

"This bus is nicer than my house!"

"Best bus we've ever had in Europe."

"After 11 days on that piece of sh*t other company's bus, this is like a 5-star hotel." (I asked, but they couldn't remember the company in question!)

"I've never been on a bus this nice. Period."

Think it's safe to say that everyone is very happy and Billy has been great too. Excellent job once again, but I expected nothing less ;o)

- Matt Pengelly - Tour Manager of Biohazard



Hi Steve. I just wanted to drop you an email to tell you how amazing your 3 drivers made the tour for myself and everyone on it. I have never had a tour where everyone has being so nice and understanding. The banter was great, never any issues, everyone got on well.
I worked it out last night and over the past 6 years I have being touring I have had out over 35 bus tours and I have never worked with a bunch of guys like Ian, Phil and Don.

The tour itself was great and my guys have an awesome time, but this was just backup by your amazing people you have working with you Jumbo is a definite winner in my books, I have never slept so well on a bus or dealt with nicer people in my life. Thanks Steve

- Rob Highcroft - Tour Manager of You Me At Six

Our driver Pete has been such a lovely host to us, humouring my need for a tropical climate at all times, making sure we always had what we needed, even making our beds! All this on top of driving us all over the country. Thanks Pete! - SaintSavious (Groove Armada)
