Live Sound Production

Stage 1 Sound has the capability to help you be heard! For events like music festivals, graduation ceremonies, concerts, award shows, presentations, plays, etc I have what it takes.  The gear you would need to rent to equal our equipment offering would be a massive expense- let alone that it is nearly impossible due to most music stores not having the size or calibre of equipment Stage 1 Sound offers.  Not only do I have what it takes for indoor or outdoor sound production at rates below what you should expect- I will be there to set it up and run it.

Don't waste time and fuel driving to a music store to rent a piece of equipment you think you need, but don't fully know how to use. Leave the sound to a pro. Give your audience a true reflection of what your event is all about by giving Dan a call!
