This all started with the love of music. I played Drums in school and guitar. I never liked being on the stage, but I liked the tech side. I worked off and on with local bands learning the trade in the early 90's. In 93 I attended Music Tech in Minnapolise MN. for Recording Engineering. The studio isn't my thing. I like the live (one chance one shot) to get it right. After Collage I travel the US for about 4 years. After making no money really I moved back to Southeast Iowa and started a dream i had for many years. I didn't get into live sound to be a production guy but here I am.
In 2001 I started Thunder & Lightning Productions. It has been one wild ride. Buying everything with every dollar I earn. Putting every dollar back into the company. I have grown every year even if it's just small.
2010 was a rough year. my gear was struck my lightning at a festival and lost A LOT of it. Not missing a show or a note, My team and I kept it moving. We struggles for a few years replacing things as we could..
2017 was a game changer for us. We added the Stageline Sl260 to our line up and started providing moblie staging.
Life is too short to listen to bad Music.
