Your team was awesome – easy, they listened when we asked them to adjust volume, etc – they were always around monitoring everything, and the equipment was insanely beautiful. It was a total breeze – thank you guys for everything. Cant wait for the next one.

The sound crew didn’t miss a cue and are the best in town!!
— Jeannie Savage, Details Details
Everything was fantastic this last Monday and Tuesday. Davis and Brent were such helpful and nice audio techs.
— Erin Sprinkel, Sterling Social
The sound tech, Chris, was particularly helpful - our clients had a few special requests they wanted played from their own iPhones and he was very accommodating and helpful in assisting with that! The clients were extremely happy. Thanks!
— Kim, Coordinator, BK Events
Thank you so very much for your entire team’s tremendous efforts surrounding our wedding day. I never thought this would be at the top of my love list from our wedding, but all the audio production was simply incredible! From the small, non-intrusive yet powerful mic during our ceremony to Davis Jones’ masterful mixing of the Cowling Band at our reception, everything was professionally polished and most impressive.

Thanks to Design Sound, our reception felt more like a live concert at an outdoor amphitheater than a wedding for 140 guests! To top it all off, the staff was well mannered, well dressed and polite. They were concerned with any and all of our needs and demonstrated tremendous professionalism throughout.
