A national provider of professional audio, video, and lighting equipment, SoundPro got its start as a backline rental company, with Elvis Presley as their first customer. Over the decades it has grown into its current role as a leading national supplier of AVL gear, serving multiple customer segments with stellar service and industry knowledge. The company will be celebrating their anniversary throughout 2023. An event bringing together their team, valued customers, and vendor partners is being planned for October.
