Perhaps the most exciting news is that Charlotte Moss new book is released and available for purchase on Amazon.

Our group arrived to unload our client’s audio rentals and video setups in the middle of the night (just part of the job).  Our gentlemen unloaded in the rear bays of the conference center for the client to be ready to to go first thing in the morning. The quieter hours of the middle of the night are also the easiest time to maneuver trucks through the usually busy and heavily trafficked city streets downtown.

After two long days of exhaustive travel, set up, and tear down to provide the best audio visual customer service in the nation, our team was able to get a little well-deserved rest.


On a side note, if you are headed to NOLA here are a few things we love about New Orleans which are not to be missed if you go to the Queen City:

A quiet coffee and beignet at Cafe du Monde.

A morning walk through the French Quarter or Garden District.

A visit to Jackson Square and the Cabildo.

An hour (if you can tear yourself away)  in The Presbytere with the amazing cultural artifacts of generations of Mardi Gras celebrations.

Laissez le bon temps rouler!
