About the Show

Ice Brigade follows Michigan-based chef Randy Finch and his team of ice artists as they blow the lid off ice sculpting by developing original designs that defy the imagination. To these frozen outlaws, the standard wedding swans are simply huge ice cubes. The real thrill of their bone-chilling craft is to make life-sized and interactive creations like bowling lanes, grand pianos, carousels and putt-putt courses.  Armed with chain saws and chisels, each episode features Randy and crew sculpting ice blocks into out-of-this world art and delivering them to awestruck clients. No matter the job or locale, the mission remains the same: get the job done, before it all melts away.
Season 1, Episode 1

One Piano Key at a Time

The Ice Brigade explores their musical side and manages the impossible, by creating a working baby grand piano for the annual Art Hop in Kalamazoo, Mich. The key to making this sculpture a success lies in the sweet melody of the piano keys themselves. The Grand Rapids team then sculpts a hookah for a local hookah lounge and leaves the place in a cloud of sweet smelling smoke.

Han Solo, Polar Derby

An overabundance of scrap ice in the work freezer has Randy and crew taking their skills outdoors for some ice sledding. Then it's Star Wars night for the Muskegon Lumberjack's hockey team, and the sculpture on order for loyal fans attending the event is one based on Han Solo and a poignant scene from The Empire Strikes Back. With all that, the Ice Brigade still finds time to design an authentic air hockey table deemed a perfect fit for a kid's birthday party, with sound effects and all.

DJ Bronco

When the order for a DJ booth made of ice, complete with a playable spinning turntable, speakers and headphones, comes in, the Ice Brigade encounters a challenge that could shut the dance floor down.
