Our Story

Rhino Staging was founded in Arizona in 1991. At that time, the working conditions for stagehands there were poor. Rhino was founded with the simple philosophy of doing things right and treating people well. This was a recipe for success and Rhino’s reputation for professional service and excellent working conditions grew. This has allowed us to become the leading provider of event labor staffing nationwide. We have pioneered many positive changes in the entertainment industry and will continue to lead in safety, training, and professional service.

Photos here from the setup for Excision's Nexus tour stop at the Tucson Arena last month. Rigging in this building is complex work and requires the high riggers to climb into the high steel to make points and to weave the steel around and through catwalk handrails, air ducts, chiller pipes, sprinkler pipes, and T-track on the drop ceiling. You can see some of that high steel work being done by Jonathan Booher Ramirez as assisted below by Frankie Arvayo and Rich Stroehlein in one of the photos here. (In another, Will Crary works on a rigging point on the low steel.) Well done to Rhino Tucson's Director of Rigging Keno Snyder and these and other members of the Tucson rigging crew there on the day for getting it done safely! ... See MoreSee Less
