Live Sound Reinforcement
Quality sound services for bands, groups, or corporate functions that are looking for excellent sound.

Articulate and consistent sound
for shows both large and small.

As a freelance engineer, I will mix your show using your sound system, or a venue provided PA. I may use my digital mixer, with the provided system. My rates reflect a walk-in and mix, and does not include any equipment moving or setup/teardown.

Location Audio/Video Recording
Performances are special moments, and they deserve a recording that can showcase the performance.

I can provide a produced video or audio recording of your group that helps you market above your competition, or just save a memory, at an affordable price.

Venue Engineering
The 2014 Zagat restaurant survey, identified the top complaint that caused patrons to fail to return. It wasn't food quality or service, it was an uncomfortable noisy atmosphere.

Many venue owners desire a busy, active atmosphere while patrons complain that it's "too loud", or the entertainment doesn't "sound good". Patrons may not even be aware of the issue, they just know they want to leave.

Often, the noise level is only part of the issue. The primary issue is the actual character of the sound. A poor sounding room is a very stressful environment. Stressed people buy less, leave early, and don't come back.


If you hire live entertainment, we can provide sound system upgrades and calibration, or a complete audio, lighting, and staging design that will give your patrons the kind of quality show that attracts more people, attracts better entertainment, makes it easier for entertainers to perform at their best, and will help you get more return for your entertainment expense.

A understanding of the psychological impact of a rooms acoustical character, and making the appropriate corrections will result in more revenue and/or better staff performance. This is true for all spaces including restaurants, sports-bars, venues with live entertainment, fitness clubs, or even your corporate boardroom.
