What Our Clients Are Saying

Attention To Detail

“Southview Arts has been a great partner for the Arts Conservatory for Teens for years! They are a one-stop-shop for production needs. As a nonprofit that serves local youth in various lanes of the arts, our needs vary based on the different applications each event or production requires — sound, lighting, and media. Whatever our needs are in these lanes, Southview makes it happen. Their attention to detail fits our different types of programs and needs in the best way possible. Their team is professional and easy to work with from the beginning of the quote process to the implementation of the event. They’ve also become a collaborator and resource for our students to be able to learn in real time, hands-on situations with the arts of audio visual technology. At ACT, we are proud to partner with Southview Arts in our mission of bringing high level arts education and experiences to local youth!”

Always Deliver - Every Single Time

“The team at Southview Arts is truly unmatched! Their skill sets and equipment, paired with their expertise, speak for themselves. We’ve collaborated with the Southview team on numerous projects, ranging from grand-scale, long weekend festivals to smaller endeavors, and they always deliver—every single time. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of work, their collaborative nature, and dedication to their craft. When it comes to partnering with Southview Arts, there’s simply no better choice!”

Worth Every Penny

“Took the luxury of hiring a sound company this weekend. With Lenny still in a boot, not lifting and carrying and our sub situation compromised, I felt it was an expense we had to incur. it’s not the first time I’ve used these folks. And they have us pretty dialed in. A modest system with excellent sound, and good console. The sound was as clean as I’ve heard it in a long time.

I do not take anything away from Lenny Austin because he does a great mix!  But, having to play and mix it’s a distraction and having the right ears and the right knowledge along with the right gear out front is a huge help.

I don’t know what their availability is or their plan to do live sound other than large shows, but I hope they keep looking out for the little guys like me…and I almost hate to put this out here cause I don’t wanna share them, lol!

Southview Arts Recording Studio owned by Jim Gilmour, we have been taken care of and it’s worth every penny. When the  Sound is taken care of, we can focus on performance and delivering songs to our audience (and we generally make up quite a bit of it in tips)  I think people feel the energy. Nick and John, our engineers, did a top-notch job over the weekend. My monitor was perfect I didn’t have to ask for a thing, went  out front several times and everything kicked ass. Kudos to you guys….thank you for being there for us! Motel Funk Music says 2 thumbs up!”

Extremely Professional

“I could not have had a better experience or asked for anything more when working with John and Nick of Southview Arts on my recent event. From the first discussion they truly understood the vision I had for the event and were equally enthusiastic and collaborative on how to make it happen.  They also had great input on additional details I hadn’t thought of that I was able to incorporate into the show.

Leading up to the event they were always responsive and communicative. The day of the show there were some issues at our venue that were beyond our control.  They immediately had creative solutions and gave me the reassurance I needed and were in action to fix it right away.

Ultimately the event went better than I ever could have imagined. They set up quickly and helped me with even the smallest details.  The equipment they brought was phenomenal. The sound and lighting was studio quality. They were extremely professional with our performers and guests.  They kept the event running smoothly and were equally unobtrusive but immediately available and gave me gentle reminders to keep it on track and on time. All of my guests complimented the quality of the sound and the look of the event space and my performers felt well presented and taken care of.

I highly recommend Southview Arts and am looking forward to utilizing their services again in the future!”

Sound Was Fantastic!

“I want to thank you for your sound work for the Shell Francisco Ska Punk Memorial Show on October 29th, 2023. With very little notice, you were able to support four bands, two four piece punk bands and two eight piece ska bands at an outside venue, the Patio at Daddy Kool Records.

The sound was fantastic and your professionalism was amazing. It was apparent to me very quickly that you had everything pertaining to the live music under control and I could focus on spending time and sharing stories with friends and family. Thanks again for taking this job and helping the memorial show happen. I would absolutely recommend your services to anyone in need.”
