Introduction: I have a very unusual background in music. Besides my many years of karaoke experience, both in front of and behind the equipment, I have 35+ years of serious classical training through the graduate degree level as a performer and composer, plus all kinds of gigs as a rock and wedding band keyboardist. I combine all of that experience in just about every genre of music imaginable with humor, a sense of real enjoyment, and a desire to make everyone comfortable next to a microphone. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to work with what I love most in life - music. Also, and more importantly, getting to see people who are shy, nervous, or aren't great singers develop self-confidence in front of a room full of people. That's how karaoke can actually change someone's life!

I rented the basic karaoke machine from Dave for my 40th birthday party. Dave was great to work with - he provided extra songs that I requested, completed the full set up of the equipment, and gave me thorough instructions on how to use it. He communicated well throughout the rental process. He will be my first call next time I have a karaoke themed celebration.

My experience was great, we used this machine at my church's annual harvest festival and it was a huge hit among old and young. Would highly recommend. Very professional.

It was great working with Dave! He is very cordial and easy to work with. He knows what sound equipment and setup is best in order to provide top quality sound for event attendees. I would recommend him to anyone that needs karaoke or sound rental services.
