We support any special occasion you can come up with, but here are a few of the hottest events you’ll likely be planning in your lifetime:

Weddings

Whether you want to rehearse or celebrate your union, our equipment can give your wedding event the elegance and fun it deserves. When planning, make sure you have the right AV equipment to convey the right mood for your special day.

Bar & Bat Mitzvahs

There’s nothing more exciting than coming of age in today’s society. Your child’s celebration should spare no expense in giving the right sound and visual experience for your friends and family as they commemorate this special occasion.

Anniversaries & Birthdays

Not all celebrations involve loud music, but they do require something to add the pizazz and pop that your special day deserves with the right audio and visual equipment. Don’t forsake the equipment it takes to create just the right ambience.

Class Reunions

It’s time to catch up with old friends, reflect on past joys, and even dance the night away to good oldies. Let your celebration be well equipped with the best sound and video equipment.

Graduations

Some special occasions seem timeless and precious to each one of us – both for the graduating student and their supportive family. So, create the right experience for your special day with our AV Packages.

Company Picnics

What’s more fun than gathering around food and great music, especially in the outdoors. Whether inside or outside, make sure you have the right equipment for your next company event.

We pride ourselves on our expertise, service and creativity with each and every client. While we offer many pre-set AV packages  to help you choose the best equipment for your event, there are some key points you should understand about sound and music.

Sound Advice

A good microphone and PA system are equally important. We have the experience to recommend the appropriate microphone and speaker for the environment whether outdoors or indoors. Start your next project with one of our AV Packages.

Musical Sense

Whether it’s walk-in music, music to dance by, or music that accompanies your photo montage, we know how to make it happen. We work with all size budgets by enabling self-DJ systems and iPod playlists. Start your next project with FrancisAV.

Photo Montages

We’d be remiss if we didn’t share our creative side. Photo montages are the perfect complement to your special occasion. It combines both audio and video in a unique presentation put together by our professionals. Contact us to start your next project.
