When audio quality matters to you, get an engineer who understands audio. More than just great gear, knowing the craft is what makes a gig sound great and worth remembering.
At V&B, we place special emphasis on producing great sound for bands and musical acts. In addition to a degree from Berklee College of Music, I have worked many live gigs, in addition to ongoing studio projects. I also co-own sound companies in 2 other countries and travel occasionally to manage large scale events. My experience runs from analog consoles to currently available digital consoles and have mixed bands, national orchestras, traditional music, etc.
Monroe was a superb tech and went out of his way to support our event. Benji who discusses the project before hand was diligent in checking on what we’re the requirements and everything was in order. All in all a great experience.
Response from V&B Sound & Lighting:
Thank you Justin. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your event.
Benji was punctual to our event and extremely accommodating. Our electrical outlet was inside the facility and he was able to arrange the cords so that they weren't as visible for photos. He was on stand-by throughout the event and was sound-testing, adjusting volume controls every step of the way. It made my job as an event planner SO MUCH EASIER. The playlist he created was perfect for our ribbon-cutting and I would absolutely recommend him for your event.
I am a composer for film and television. I hired V&B Sound to re-outfit my Los Angeles based studio space before beginning work on a feature film. The owner, Benji, was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and budget conscious. He put together a full list of gear, sound proofing materials and everything I needed. He knows where to save and where to spend, and his experience as a professional musician gives him the expertise to clearly explain and justify his recommendations. What's more, he personally installed as much of the equipment as he was able and also made the rest of it was properly done.
I highly recommend Benji and V&B Sound and will be using them for all of my future gear and equipment purchases as well as anything else related to audio and installation.
I needed a sound engineer for my party and Benji came through excellently. He was there on time and worked with the band to figure everything out. He was confident, helpful, and attentive. Will definitely hire again!
We used V&B Sound & Lighting for my best friend's wedding. The reception was both outdoors and inside. I honestly couldn't have asked for a more seamless team to work with - they were really flexible with all our last minute changes / demands. The sound system was super clear, and they did an awesome job installing bright uplights around the hall, and lit up the stage, dance floor, and the outdoor area for all our guests. Thanks guys!! I'll definitely be referring V&B Sound & Lighting to everyone in the L.A. area.
