Our Story

Starting the business with $750 cash, and no assets we started with  two youth baseball tournaments, simply as hobby to supplement my teaching income. As the business grew we expanded to additional entertainment ideas. Continuing to invest we purchased  four state of the art  sound systems, three video/sound production boards stations, two mobile lighting systems, vehicles and trailers to house and move the equipment.  These along with our strong experienced staff provide the opportunity to give  the customer the highest quality service possible and enjoyable experience.   

A trend appeared that the entertainment world  make much more sense to move our focus and future.  Music always having been a big part of my life it was a no brainer for the next phase of growth be toward music festival and family entertainment driven arenas.

Events provided include but not limited to:  outdoor live music events, up and coming artists, wine tasting, flea markets and festivals.  This year will be our first "The Idaho State Fair"  in the late summer of 2024. More information coming! 

On demand we are licensed in: Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.  Our goal is to provide quality and affordable options rather than the high powered, elitist driven providers who seem to drive quantity over quality.  

I want to thank our patrons, teams, friends, family and employees who have been instrumental in moving the dream forward the past several years.  There are simply too many people to name but know you have a deep place in our heart in our continued growth.

God bless you all!
