Matt Ford is the sort of guy that you see at a show and signal a head nod at with a mutual understanding that it’s going to be a great night for live music. You wouldn’t have guessed that he organized the entire show and is CEO of Solstice Live, a web platform for music that services venues and local bands for hire. While speaking to Matt, I found that he was easy-going and free spirited as he didn’t mind having a conversation without shoes on. We discussed his roles as a company owner, boyfriend, father, musician, athlete, and businessman. Whether barefooted or not, Matt is just a guy who wants to connect everyone through live music and huge dance parties. We should probably thank him for that!
This is part of a series that we film to showcase the lives and stories of those who custom print shirts with us at Oh Boy! It’s more than just slapping some ink on t shirts. There are great stories behind why the shirts are printing in the first place and of the people who wear them.
This video spotlights Austin’s own DJ Buck Rodgers. Austin is a place of much talent and the cream always rises to the top. We were first introduced to Jordan when he called the shop to ask about some tees. He needed them quick, just in time for his Redbull Threestyle 2015 qualifier in New Orleans. He took New Orleans and has since moved on to the next round. The following Threestyle qualifier will be in Phoenix where he will compete on April 2nd.

10 Tips for Success
Hanging out with Montsho was an experience in itself. Unbeknownst to him, he gives me a refreshing perspective on life and the world of spoken word poetry. With a magnifying demeanor, he carries a strong, resilient presence. Montsho attracts a certain amount of positive energy wherever he goes. Standing next to me, he is three times my size and one of the kindest souls that you will meet in this lifetime.
Upon my arrival, I wasn’t surprised to catch Montsho peacefully sipping hot tea and meditating in his backyard. He is a man of few words but can impact others with whatever he needs to say when the moment is right. Montsho is a great inspiration and has a unique ability to bring people together. He achieves this with creativity and eloquence through poetry. We live in a bustling and complicated world, we should take inspiration from this man. He simply sees life as a conscious experience and less complicated than most think it should be.

Descendants of Erdrick recreate music from our favorite video game soundtracks and it’s fantastic!
We had the pleasure of printing their “Dragon Warrior” t shirt, illustrated by Melissa Flores. Our main focus for this job was to keep the fine detail and original integrity of the design intact.
For the text in the artwork, the shirt features a split fountain print to achieve the gradient. We wanted Melissa’s design to translate perfectly on to a t shirt and this print makes us proud.

SOTX BMX sweatshirts created by Lui Morales for the riders in the lower Rio Grande Valley.
The association’s purpose is to stay active and promote the BMX scene in south Texas. The group on Facebook has over two hundred members from all over. This includes Brownsville, Harlingen, and Mcallen.
If you ride BMX in Texas or the lower valley, you should keep up with these guys.
We decided to print the garments on Tultex pullover hoodies using discharge ink. With this type of ink, you achieve a super soft print. Unlike traditional printing on hoodies or sweatshirts, you don’t feel the ink at all.
The Vangoes, known to some as the Hippies of Hip-Hop blend soul, funk, and blues into a live feel good sound. With the band’s aesthetic in mind it was a simple choice to print these shirts using discharge and water-based ink. This gave them that premium soft, retail quality feel.
We especially enjoyed printing these not only because Sean Elliot (the band’s MC) designed it but because it was part of a good cause. It’s well known that The Vangoes help around the community with food drives and music programs for the youth.
Definitely worth noting is that the soulful crooner of the band, Lamar Jones, has his own signature BBQ sauce. It’s called Janktafied Goodness and it’s the bomb! I keep a healthy stock in my pantry all year round.
