Ed Sandor fell in love with audio production over 35 years ago. As a musician with strong interests in technology and recording, it was natural for him to immerse himself in the art of audio engineering. This led to the building and operating of his own commercial recording studios and rehearsal facilities in Central California. His experience made him a valued producer and Ed served as an independent producer and audio engineer for a number of record labels during the late 80s and early 90s. By 1993 he had established a live sound division.
The live performance industry began to experience a change in the late 90s with more groups settling down into their own permanent theatres. While these new venues sprang up all over the country, the hottest real estate for live performers was in Branson, Missouri.
Over the last 35 years Ed has engineered some of the highest profile live productions in the industry for concerts, theatrical performances, worship, and corporate events with an impressive range of clients from The Radio City Christmas Spectacular to Artist Andy Williams’ worldwide tours.
Ed formed Sandor Sound Services Group in 1998 and clients soon started commissioning the company to design and implement Audio and Video Systems, Theatrical Lighting Systems, Staging and Scenic for Theaters, Amusement Parks, Public School Districts, Universities, Museums, Architectural Firms, and Houses of Worship.
Sandor AVL Systems is often quoted in industry trade publications and has appeared in Pro Sound News and other trade magazines. He is also the recipient of the Branson All American Entertainment Award.
Today, Ed and his children Aimee and Stephan are looking to build an even bigger, brighter, and more spectacular service for their existing clients.
Though the world is changing along with technology, our philosophy hasn't. We start by listening to our client's vision in order to completely understand the message they are trying to convey. Through that process we derive inspiration for a concept and design that showcases the most cutting edge technology in today's industry while staying relevant to our client's needs, vision, and staying within budget. We take pride in our work, and you will too.
