D&K SOUND SERVICES started out in 1964 as a part time venture with myself, Ron DeLisa, and my partner Bill Kolouch in Wethersfield, Connecticut. For several years we did mainly sound reinforcement jobs, from dance recitals and graduation ceremonies to corporate shareholder meetings and special events, such as the Greater Hartford Open, the Governors Ball, the Constitution Plaza Arts Festival, and the Volvo Tennis Tournament.
In the early years another large part of our business was location recording. We recorded and produced albums for school, church, corporate, and specialty groups. We even recorded the Hartford Whalers fight song. In those days, we were franchised with Mark Custom Records for the Connecticut and Massachussetts area. Things went very well for us; we provided high quality sound, reliability, dependability, and prompt delivery of the finished product.
In 1970, D&K SOUND SERVICES became a full time business, and soon after became D&K SOUND SERVICES INC. Our first studios were located at 1800 Silas Deane Highway in Rocky Hill, CT. We quickly became one of the most prominent voice-over studios in the area, producing commercials for radio & TV, as well as educational, technical, and promotional recordings for local and national agencies and corporate clients.
In 1976, a major fire took a good part of our building and we were forced to move. Our new location at 842 Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield provided us with much needed new space for cassette duplication and two new studios.
Over the next decade and a half, the business continued to grow and again we were in need of more space. We made a move up the street to our present location at 912 Silas Deane Highway where we have been for 15 years. Here we added our video production and duplication services, and gained additional storage for our ever-growing inventory of sound reinforcement and video projection equipment.
D&K SOUND SERVICES INC has been providing quality services and products now for over 40 years. We have the know-how, experience, and technology; whether you need sound reinforcement, studio or location recording, video production and projection, audio and video duplication, or special projects. We are continuing our long heritage of providing the highest quality services and products to both new and established clients, clients who have stayed with us for decades. Thats why we are still here today, after 40 years, to serve you.
