My first road show was "Hair" when it left broadway in 1973 followed by the Harry Chapin tour. I worked with Harry until his death.
Through the 70's and into the mid 80's we did several regional and national tours supply sound, lights or both with act such as Kool & the Gang, Billy Joel, Teddy Pendergras, Blue Oyster Cult, etc.
In the Mid 80's Entertainment Systems became shop # 1 of Local 365 of the I.A.T.S.E. From then until our move to Virginia I was department head for electrics at Waterloo Village in NJ., which had two performance spaces, a 3000 seat tent and a 20,000 capacity field with shedstage. We still did a lot of one nighters and corporate events during this period along with numerous installations.
Today most of our business is internet and catalog sales of theatrical and production oriented equipment and supplies. We have also found a nicht here in the Northern Neck of VA and are busy with major sound and projection installations. This past week we finished the new YMCA job, a 44,000 sq ft building in which we installed a distributed paging system, sound system for the gym, music system for the aerobics room and high SPL system for the teen center.
