homeWelcome to Schnake Sound & Light

For more than thirty years Schnake Sound & Light has provided audio production and support throughout the Midwest. From tour acts such as The Beach Boys, Bret Michaels, Glorianna, Lou Gramm, Tracy Lawrence to local festivals, Schnake Sound & Light has earned the reputation for reliability, affordability and professionalism.

One call can secure sound, lights, stage, and back-line. From concerts and festivals to one-off productions, we deliver production support that is second to none. We don’t want to simply meet your needs and expectations, we want to exceed them.

From the beginning, company founder Bill Schnake has made sure that every job is treated with care and professionalism. Every event from local festivals to touring acts receives the same amount of courtesy, dedication and attention to detail.

Many of the events that Schnake Sound & Light does are for clients who have been using our services for the past decade or longer. Regardless of the size and scope of production Schnake Sound & Light can and will come through for you.

Our wide range of services includes not just audio, but full production services. Our affiliated contacts with stage, lighting and backline allow us to take care of most any need that you may have.
