My Equipment

For every event, I am able to offer a full range of the finest state of the art equipment available, From 8" & 12" powered speakers including line array speaker systems from 100 to 1300 watts. I also offer laser and LED lighting rigs (for a nominal additional fee). Equipment setup time is included in the hire price, and I am fully versed in the correct equipment & set up for each individual venue to make sure your night runs smoothly, sounds, and looks great!.

Focused on my customers

The best kind of music is the kind that brings back great memories, & makes wonderful new memories. My main objective is to play or sing what you and your guests want to hear, and make an enjoyable connection with them! Give me a sample of songs or genres and I will put together a set you and your guests will love. No matter where or what your event is, I will make it memorable & fun. You have my word on that.


All bookings are based on a minimum number of hours, and any requested overtime is negotiated separately in advance or on site.

Any holidays or holiday events are always negotiated at separate rates regardless of website pricing guidelines or information. (Even if it is your "scheduled" weekly karaoke night at your venue).

Sound Of The Times uses contracts for all private events, and no event is considered "booked" until there is a fully executed signed contract, and a paid reservation fee.

Any events that total $300.00 or less must be paid in full upon reservation.

Music Piracy, Karaoke, & You. (The Public Venue Owner)

Bars or other public venues hiring a Karaoke Host or DJ who is using illegal pirated music puts the establishment owner at risk. If caught working in your venue you can be liable for large fines, as well as possibly lose your liquor license. 

Sound Of The Times Entertainment strongly opposes piracy and the use of illegally obtained media of ANY kind. 

 I am FULLY LICENSED by Sound Choice Karaoke, and I have purchased ALL the music I posess.

I have invested tens of thousands of dollars in music over the last 25 years I have been in business and ultimately it is to protect my valuable clients from any potential adverse legal actions by outside parties.

I absolutely WILL NOT use ANY music, or media that I do not personally purchase or already own. 

I will protect and operate in your business as if it was my own. This is my promise to you.
