Meet Netsound

Netsound was born out of a passion to bring the best of audio, lights, and professionalism to the entertainment industry in the Redding area. We noticed that most people wanting DJ’s, sound techs or lighting services had to either choose between super gear with difficult people or sub-par gear with nice amateurs. We knew there was a niche because we experienced this gap firsthand. Sure enough, 9 years into this we are stacked to the hilt with some of the best gear you can get and more events than we thought possible. Every major quality event happening in this area books Netsound, as do discerning brides, event planners, venue owners, business owners and school administrators. Why? Because we are professional, easy to work with, we respond to communications promptly, we bring peace not stress, we show up with solutions and not problems, events run smoothly and on time, we speak well of others and build people up rather than tear them down, event planners and attendees comment on the professionalism and quality and everyone ends up feeling good! You are going to pay something for DJ services, sound techs and lighting services, and since most people doing this in our region quote rates in the same ballpark as ours, you might as well enjoy hiring the ones who have the best reputation, highest quality gear and greatest level of demand in this area. Book Netsound today!

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

My husband and I wanted to meet a few different DJs before selecting one for our wedding. After we met Jon from netsound, we didn’t need to meet anyone else. We knew instantly he knew what he was doing. He answered our questions and concerns before we even had to ask. He performed the ceremony music flawlessly and seemed to teleport himself to the reception room for cocktail hour before anyone had to stand a chance to stand around waiting. He kept the party going all night which is exactly what we asked. Several people told us it was one of the best weddings they had attended. We all had a blast. He was also great at being re MC-he kept things moving and people informed of what was going on at all times. There was never any awkward confusion or disorganization thanks to the venue coordinator (Jessica Morgan) and Jon’s MC skills. We also paid Jon for a photo booth (best price I’ve seen) and everyone had a great time with it.

I have worked with Jon and his staff on almost 100 events over the past five years. Their work quality continuously exceeds my expectations and they always have great attitudes. I will continue to hire Netsound for all events, because of their peerless reliability. I know they will be punctual, prepared for the job, and perform the job correctly.

I hired Netsound to provide audio, lighting, and media services for a health fair event my company hosted. Netsound’s professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail were amazing. The event was seamless and a large part of its success is owed to Netsound. You can really tell that the team at Netsound is passionate about the work they do. I will never use anyone else for my audio, lighting, or media needs.
