One word. Rock on! Okay, that's two words, but these guys know how to throw a party...nationally that is.

From east to west coast, Majestic Productions has provided audio, lighting, video and creative LED to some of the biggest names in showbiz. With today’s production technology, there are more possibilities than ever before. However, without skilled eyes and ears even the best technology cannot live up to its full potential.
"Our level of quality, service, and attention to detail is second to none," says founder and owner Ryan Bates. "By bringing together the best of cutting edge technology with leaders in the entertainment industry, we provide the extraordinary!"
I am looking forward to honoring them as a finalist and possible winner of the 2012 Emerging Business of the Year award!
