Live Sound

Finding the right sound company for your live sound event is not easy. Finding one that fits within your budget can be even more difficult. The Soundman provides sound services for events ranging from a party for 50 people in a small room to a county fair with multiple stages and public address systems covering a large area. Our sound technicians are also disc jockeys and announcers. They are able to keep the flow of an event moving between performers and bands. Take a look at our schedule for this year our events include fairs, festivals conventions, weddings, rodeos, destruction derbies , auctions, dances, non-profit sporting events and community celebrations. Our equipment is up to date and professional in quality made by top manufacturers such as  J.B.L.Yamaha , QSC, and Crown to name a few. We pre-plan with our performers and bands before each event to ensure that their needs are satisfied.
