We are very proud of our excellent staff. This is a demanding company to work for with a very detailed and complex list of expectations and procedures. All of our sound engineers, LDs and audio visual technicians are very experienced and many are also certified riggers, trained electricians, commercial drivers and highly professional bad asses with talented eyes and ears. Many of them work only part time or seasonally for us with the exception of the following four of us, who are full time employees.
