Southard Audio LLC is located near Harrisonburg, Virginia, about two hours from Washington DC, Richmond VA, and Roanoke VA. Our company provides technical production for concerts, festivals, and special events. Founded by partner and CEO Mike Southard in 1980, we are approaching our 35th successful year of providing the eastern United States with quality, professional event support. Our success comes from developing a trust with our clients; Our clients trust that they will receive exceptional, consistent, and reliable service from both our staff and our hardware.
The formula is simple: provide quality, service, and value.
The production staff is the most crucial aspect of any successful event. Our staff is unsurpassed. Friendly, flexible, experienced, and highly skilled personnel are the cornerstones of each event we produce.
Immense care and research is given to every piece of equipment we purchase, to ensure that any system we provide will meet the highest standards of sonic quality, artist acceptance, and reliability. Components are packaged for quick set up and safe travel, and all equipment is meticulously maintained and serviced.
From our first phone conversation to the final encore, you will know that we take customer service seriously. We listen, we ask, we do our homework. And on the day of the show, you can be confident that we will arrive on time, provide a competent and experienced crew, and be prepared to present the quality our clients have come to expect.
We know you still have to watch the budget, so we watch ours. Our careful advance-work ensures that you aren’t paying for things that you don’t need, while important details – which are critical to the smooth operation of an event – are covered. And our location, outside of major metropolitan areas, drastically reduces our operating expenses and allows us to be surprisingly price competitive.
