Our first year doing sound and lighting for this huge event in Elk Grove. The city brought in a trailer stage and we brought in the sound, (2) delay towers and (3) generators. This was a super long day of setup, but the event was fun. We transmitted audio to the furthest tower that was around 800’ away. There were an estimated 22,000 people at this event and the delay towers ran without a single drop out. We look forward ro possibly returning next year.
This event has always been great, and this year was even better. Due to town center construction, the fireworks were launched very close to where we were in the center of the Town Center. They were being launched about 50’ away from us and it was cool. We had a great time and weather was pleasant.
We were hired to do stage, sound and lighting for a concert event hosted by a winery in Lodi and they hired Coffey Anderson to perform. We have worked with him a few times in the past and this band really couldn’t be easier to work with. We arrived at 10 am to start setup and everything ran smoothly. The client provided a gigantic generator which was very helpful.
This is our 8th year of doing sound and lighting for this concert series. We have a great line up of bands this season and we look forward to a smooth season.
We had 3 shows this day and I was at a wedding in Winters at one of our favorite venues. These weddings are incredible. Simple, yet beautiful and memorable.
We set this stage up the night before since we had 2 other events the next day. The band hired to perform for this event was The Cheeseballs. The weather was warm, but the show ran smoothly.
Our first show of the 2019 season was with Petty Theft. We also had a wedding this same day and a show up the street at Helwig Winery.
This was our 4th year doing this graduation. We place a lot of speakers along the main bleachers, other speakers on the opposing bleachers and of course speakers facing the main graduates on the field. We appreciate how helpful the school staff is every year.
We have had a long relationship with this dealership, even when it changed ownership and we love the brand. We were asked to provide lighting and sound for this event being hosted at a local winery. The winery owner drives a Bentley Bentayga and they were really excited about having an event like this on their property. After we found all the available power, setup ran smoothly and the event ran without issue. They had about 150 guests participate and it was fun.
For the second year, this festival ran great. The weather was rainy, so all outdoor stages were cancelled and the main stage got moved inside. This year, the festival also got expanded to 2 days so we were grateful to be inside. The theater we were in was a particular challenge with its height and depth, but it was very narrow. We got creative with the sound characteristics of our main speakers to go high and deep but keep the throw narrow. It worked great for this theater. We were honored to do sound for the Air Force Band, and The Four Freshman. We had a lot of talent that weekend and we had a great time. The load in was interesting with the load in door being 5’ off the ground and the box truck being about 4’ high, we had to get creative with that as well.
This was a huge milestone for us, our 100th DUi Sentencing event in a school since April 2010. We have shown the real life consequences for driving under the influence to 10’s of thousands of students in age from middle school to college. This is a great organization to be involved with and we look forward to it’s future growth and state wide expansion.
One of our favorite wedding venues, and they continue to be amazing. This particular wedding was very complicated with artists performing at the ceremony, (2) bands playing, me MCing and then DJing (2) different channels of Silent Disco. It was the most complicated wedding I have ever done, but super cool.
We had a busy day. We had a wedding in Winters, this event at Rocklin Quarry and a lot of lighting at McClellen Event Center. This event was a 3 band music festival at a briefest hosted by a local brewery. The turnout was huge and the event ran great.
This was one of the largest events we have done. We were responsible for the large stage, roof, lighting, sound and video outside, and for video and sound inside for the dinner. We had a lot of moving parts with this event and it ran perfectly. We placed the stage in the middle of the city hall plaza, and the dinner and auction was inside a large tent in the same plaza. We had a great time with this event and the organization raised a lot of money for homeless teens.
We were asked to do sound for Blue October at The Crest Theater. This was one of the most memorable shows we have ever done. This was an acoustic show with (2) members of the band and it was unbelievable. We brought in a grand piano, and the sound required. I went tinto this only knowing one Blue October song, and now I am a huge fan.
This even has really grown in the last 5 years and this one was spectacular. This organization gives pro-life resources to pregnant women and they do great work. We did the sound, lighting and video projection along with a very unique shadow silhouette of a woman having an ultrasound done live. It was very cool. we projected the ultrasound on the big video screen, and next to it was the silhouette of the exam. The event ran great and we look forward our next year.
We have been doing this event for the last 4 years and it gets better every year. This year, we placed the stage and lighting right in the middle of the room which made a big difference for the audience. We look forward to continuing this early December event.
This event was a real highlight to our year. This was a private event and they brought in Gavin Rossdale of Bush to perform for 20 minutes. It was a small room and only about 150 people, but it was amazing and he and his guitarist Chris and their sound guy were great to work with. Gavin left quickly after he performed to catch a plane, and then we did sound for a group called The Black Moods, who were awesome..
This was perhaps the most unique event we have done all year. This event has about 2,000+ participants and they are all directed to wear all white, bring their own table, chairs and dinner and meet at a location where the actual destination is revealed. This year, the event was being held at the Sacramento Zoo and it was a big secret until it was revealed.. We were tasked with providing sound throughout the entire zoo, and sound for the main stage with Apple Z performing. We were able to set up the night before, and the zoo is a magical place in the dark. We set up 13 speakers all over the zoo, and then main speakers and subwoofers at the main stage. It was a challenge running all that signal cable all over and finding power in this 91 year old facility, but we made it work and it was a blast. We will never forget getting a text from the zoo asking us to turn it down a bit because the monkeys and the giraffe were freaking out.
A close friend now owns a Honda dealership in Los Angeles. Apparently, when you own a dealership like this, you buy a race team to go with it. We were called down to provide sound, lighting and DJ this really cool event. The race car was placed in a shipping container, which we put lights in. The good folks at this dealership have never done an event like this before and they were all a bit awe struck to see how we do things in Northern California at his Bentley and Maserati dealership. Honda Corporate was there along with the race team management. It was a really fun event. Looking forward to watching their success.
