We Offer Specialized Audio & Lighting Equipment (and more!) for Wedding Ceremonies, Cocktail Hours, Dinners & Receptions.
We are a full service Berkshire County based audio company that can supply professional grade audio equipment and services for your entire wedding, from your service to your reception. We service areas of Western MA, Eastern NY, Southern VT, & Northwestern CT. We bring over 20 years of diverse professional experience mixing live sound for national performers, bands, theater, music venues and music festivals to your event.
With many years experience mixing live theater, we approach every wedding ceremony as if it were an important theater production. We offer professional grade theater quality microphones, speakers and audio playback programs to play your prerecorded ceremony audio tracks. We can also lightly amplify musicians performing for your ceremony as well. Our experience truly is the difference that sets us apart from others offering wedding amplification.
Below are brief descriptions of the services that we offer. If you would like additional information about securing audio services for your wedding, reception or event, please click here for our Wedding & Reception service request form.
Amplifying your Wedding Service.
Our specialty is the amplification of indoor and specifically outdoor wedding services, and we have many years of experience to share with you. Many DJ services will use multiple hand-held microphones or clip-on microphones to amplify wedding services. Using even the smallest wireless clip on microphones and the accompanying belt packs are sometimes difficult to place on a wedding gown or other fine garments. Although we can offer you hand-held or clip on microphones, our preference is to use professional theater quality, non hand-held microphones to amplify wedding services. They are very discrete and can be placed so that they are hard to see in any photography.
Pictured above is a Wedding Ceremony that we provided audio services for in the Summer of 2014 at Naumkeag Gardens in Stockbridge, MA.
We can operatre our Digital Mixing Consoles wirelessly (as seen in the photo below) so that we can stand behind your guests out of view. This also helps us to keep unsightly wires, and equipment out of the view of your guests, letting you and the natural beauty of your chosen venue shine. Remember, we bring over 20 years of diverse professional experience mixing live sound for national performers, bands, theater and music venues to your wedding ceremony. Don't leave this important part of your day to an inexperienced DJ service, our experience really does make a difference!

If you would like us to play pre-recorded music that you have chosen for your services, you can send us the files in advance so that we can play your songs using one of our audio devices. If you will have musicians performing for your service, we can amplify them using small discrete microphones, and their music can come out of the same speakers that we would use to amplify your wedding service vows. We can also manage all audio communications between your officiant, venue manager, and musicians, leaving you more time to devote to your special day.
Our extensive inventory of audio equipment allows us to provide multiple location set-ups (ie: church to reception) so that everything is prepared in advance. We use only professional grade audio equipment which includes brands such as JBL, EAW, QSC, Midas, and Shure.

Recording Audio for your Wedding Service.
We can offer you and your videographer a multi-track audio recording of your entire service, including any musicians that may be performing. Our recordings are not picked up by a single video microphone. When musicians are performing, we will place a small microphone on each instrument that will enable us to provide you with a multi-track recording of your event that is CD quality. We can also provide wav files for your videographer as well.
Play your own music for your Cocktail Hour or Reception through a professional grade Audio System.
We can supply you with a professional audio system so that you can play your own music from your laptop, iPod, iPad or other audio player. We also offer audio speakers that will enable you to play your favorite music from your audio device through our speakers wirelessly! All you have to do is plug in and have fun! We can also offer you a wireless microphone for announcements. We have systems that will cover a crowd of 50 to 2,000 or more.

What sets Encore Audio apart from others offering the same services?
Our diverse experience is the difference. Our owner is an Audio Engineer at the prestigious Colonial Theater in the Berkshires of Western, MA. He also provides audio support to Edith Wharton's estate The Mount in Lenox, MA, The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, and Arlo Gurthrie's church in Great Barrington, MA. He brings over 20 years of diverse professional experience mixing live sound for performers, bands, theater and music venues to your event. He has mixed shows for such performers as Chris Robinson of The Black Crows, Martin Sexton, and many others. He also has many years experience as a touring musician. This experience enables us to provide specific equipment, insight and expertise with audio equipment that a Wedding DJ Service will not be able to offer you.
We look forward to having the opportunity to be able to share our experience with you to help make your upcoming event one that you and your guests will remember, and talk about for years to come.
