Western States Center

I want to tell you and the rest of your team how grateful we at Western States Center are for your work and your contribution to last night’s event. Chris helped trouble-shoot on the spot and provided invaluable expertise that made the whole thing come together smoothly — and your flexibility and patient explanations allowed us to make it happen on a very short notice. A big big thank you from our team to yours!

Crystal Goostree

Thanks Jeremy. All was superb and I will definitely use you again when we host this group. 🙂

Becky Reimer

Thank you so much to you and your team. You all did a great job and we are very appreciative.

Nathan Straub

I have worked with Jeremy at more than a dozen events, and can say that he is consistently resourceful. He will bring whatever gadget is necessary to make your production look and sound professional. Jeremy is very concerned with making your show run smoothly. Most of the time, no one notices the elaborate workings of the lights, sound system, or projector. He stresses over them so you don't have to.


I wanted to thank you for helping us with the equipment we rented from you. You were so gracious with the pricing that I can’t say enough. I look forward to renting from you again if we should ever be back in the area.


Thanks for helping out so last minute. I really appreciated it and it really helped to make the event great.
