I own the internet radio station V103 Rock and every year I put on the V103Rockfest concert. Sidewinder is my "GO TO" company every year for sound and lights. I have worked with several sound and light companies and I will say that they offer the best equipment and have the most knowledge I have come across. They are very professional and work very hard to make sure my event goes off with out a hitch. They have worked with many different genres of music and it always sounds great and the stage show looks amazing. I wont use another company if I don't have to.
AKAlive Band has benefited from Sidewinder Sound and Lights expertise for many years. As an example, we hired them for a Live Concert at the Historic Folsom Amphitheater with about 500 in attendance. We wanted to record the show for a Live CD. They recorded the show very clearly. The tracks were used for our Live CD Ear Candy. They supplied a large sound system appropriate to the outside venue. Sidewinder managed the recording as well as providing Front of House mix and Monitor mixes. AKAlive Band members loved the clear detailed sound onstage. A friend of mine who runs another Sound Company for 20 years and has heard the band many times said we sounded the best he had ever heard us. The sound was clear, powerful and musical. Another friend who has been a sound mixer for 3 decades raved about the sound. He again mentioned the power, the clarity and definition were great for an outdoor venue. We have had many other similar positive experiences with Sidewinder. We hired them for a CD release party 4 years ago that was again well done with lights, sound and recording. We strongly recommend Sidewinder Sound and Lights to you for your gigs.
I manage and oversee 5 music venues in northern California, called Retro. we have 2 locations in Roseville, Rocklin, Fresno, san Francisco, and Eureka, Brian has always been amazing with us setting up easy to use lighting sytems, showing the team how to use and program and has spent countless hours with us before and after the installations!!!! At Sidewinder Sound and Lights customer service goes above and beyond 24/7! ive called brian on weekends and at random times at nights during concerts for questions and also to borrow lights from him!!!!! Sidewinder is TRULY THE BEST!!!!
RETRO MEDIA GROUP
We are Goings and Goings Entertainment and we brought to Sacramento the very first 3-Day Reggae Music festival. We had 30 bands in 3 days, and Sidewinders performed this task like it was no problem. They had everything and more. Very Professional, lots of knowledge and a great go to guy when we needed things clearified. They had an awesome crew that worked their tails off. Never was there a problem. The sound was awesome and the lighting was something you have to witness. We could not have been so successful without them. They are the reason why so many artists want to play at next years festival. Thank you Sidewinders for your help!

Additional Booking Notes
My newest sound system runs a "wireless mixer" this mixer eliminates the use of an audio snake running out into the audience and eliminates the need for a big sound booth in the middle of the event to run the show from. I can mix the sound system and run the lighting system all from my iPad. Musicians on stage may have wireless access to their monitor mixes from their Smart Phone.
