About us

Our History

Established in 1980,the Soundpeople have provided top quality sound for concerts,festivals, corporate and sporting events.
We have a dedicated staff of 4 who have been with the company for many years.
They all have musical backgrounds and strive for the best possible results. All are competent audio engineers, having worked with many of New Zealand's top artists.
In the last few years the Soundpeople have ceased their smaller "dry" hires to concentrate more on the medium to larger events. All systems come with at least one systems engineer.
