Geekbox President/CEO Bell Brings Unique Device To 2014 ESPY Awards In Los Angeles

Sparta, TN (July 15, 2014) – Tennessee-based Geekbox® and California-based GBK Productions have partnered to introduce the World’s Most Versatile Wireless Speaker to the World’s Greatest Athletes during the 2014 ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Besides being a big-sounding mini-jukebox and speaker phone, Geekbox is a dynamic promotional and marketing tool.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring our versatile device to a new audience,” says Geekbox President and CEO Charles Bell. “The Geekbox will help a wide range of people reach out and get their message to the masses.”

Bell’s partnership with GBK allows him to personally present limited-edition GBK Geekboxes in the 2014 ESPY Awards’ celebrity gift lounge, a much sought-after destination for celebrities and athletes alike.

At first look, the versatile Geekbox is a small, wireless speaker that fits in your car cup holder. But after allowing just a few seconds to sync to a Bluetooth-capable phone, IPad or tablet, listeners are surprised when their own personal playlist cranks loudly out of the Geekbox. It also syncs with computers and other Bluetooth devices to play gaming or movie audio. Users also have full control of the volume and track selection right from their phone or other device. For you techies, Geekbox is rated to reach sound levels over 100 decibels with a frequency range of 60 Hz to 18 KHz. Additionally, non-Bluetooth devices can be linked with Geekbox via a 3.5mm cable, which is provided.

One of the most unique facets of the Geekbox is its included 4 gigabyte memory card upgradeable to 32 gigabytes. Personal messages, using the client’s own voice, can be pre-loaded on the Geekbox. Recording artists also choose to pre-load their latest music or previous hits on the Geekbox. Users can even load their own .MP3 and .WMA files from their computer via USB connection.

The outside of the Geekbox can also be customized to visually present a client’s message or brand. The Geekbox team can use existing graphics or they can create custom designs based on their clients’ needs. Clients’ brands are still represented no matter what plays over the Geekbox.

“We work with our clients to find the perfect visual that properly represents them,” continues Bell. “Geekbox has been used as a fundraising tool and has helped a wide variety of people and businesses increase their brand recognition, reach new audiences, or simply get the word out to their fans.”

Geekbox, which is headquartered nearly 100 miles east of Nashville, is already getting the word out with over 30 country, bluegrass, country rap and rock acts, such as Aaron Tippin, Hank Williams Jr., Darryl Worley, Gene Watson, Richard Young & Doug Phelps of The Kentucky Headhunters, Brian Kelley, Rick Monroe, Ronnie Reno, Rhonda Vincent and Sam Morrison while making new additions daily.

A host of organizations take advantage of Geekbox’s versatility for promotions, branding and marketing, including such diverse companies as cable TV channel, RFD-TV; financial institutions, Turney Financial and Wieniewitz Financial; music industry publication, Country Weekly Magazine; the world’s number one volume-selling motor home dealer, Motor Home Specialists; booking agency, Bobby Roberts Company; radio stations, WGSQ 94.7 The Country Giant and WKSW 98.5 KissFM.

The versatile Geekbox has recently been part of several other prominent events, including several major college playoff events through Pacific Award Center and 2014 RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN, the richest one-day rodeo event in history.

“We continue to develop Geekbox to be the best it can be and we work hard to give our Geekbox partners every opportunity to

make those vital business connections in a personal way,” says Bell. “We’re even more thrilled to be involved with the ESPY Awards because of their heartfelt dedication to such worthy causes like The V Foundation,” states Bell.

The ESPY Awards raise more than $1 million annually for The V Foundation, the charity founded by the late basketball coach Jim Valvano to promote cancer research.

The Geekbox family also works closely with the Oklahoma Disabled American Veterans to help with their suicide prevention program. Geekbox CEO Bell, Aaron Tippin, Neal McCoy and Darryl Worley were recently awarded the Oklahoma DAV Community of Heroes Award.

Immediately following the ESPY’s, Geekbox will be participating in 2014 Summer NAMM (Booth 130), as well as other events throughout 2014. Retailers and merchandisers are also welcome to visit during NAMM or contact the Geekbox team if interested in starting a partnership.
