Soundhog Productions

Soundhog Productions, LLC Logo

Live sound production for your band or music event.

About

Soundhog Productions was started to provide great sound and lighting for bands, venues and events. Too often bands are forced to compromise when hiring production; good sound with lighting that’s lacking - often playing in the dark or with uninspiring lighting.

My goal is to not only make you sound great but to look great too. Having consistent production for your band or event ensures quality for your buyer and raises the entertainment value for your show.

About Me

Hi, I’m Jon-Paul LeClair. I’ve been a musician (drummer) all my life, playing professionally since the early ‘90s. In the mid 90’s my band, Reflescent Tide, was signed to a national record label putting out two albums along with having songs charting in the Top 10 in the Christian music industry.

I’ve remained active in the Fox Valley music scene playing local bands along with being a co-owner in a band my son was involved in for several years until starting Soundhog Productions in 2016.

I’m passionate about music, recording, production and lighting. It’s something I genuinely enjoy doing. It’s my goal to make every band I work with look and sound the best that I can - it’s what I’d want for my own endeavors.

Services

Having a great sounding and looking show is important for your band or event's image. Don't settle for playing in the dark with dim lighting or compromise on sound. It's my goal to make sure you always sound and look great.

Whether you're in a duet or a 5 piece rock band, Soundhog has a rig that can handle small, medium and some large sized venues with lighting to complete the package.

Sound-guy Only

Just need a sound-guy to run your rig? I can fill that role as well. I'm comfortable with most digital/analog mixers. Please contact me to discuss your needs.

Your own monitor mix? Yes please!

Wouldn't it be cool to control your own monitor mix? I can give you wireless access to your own monitor mix via the Behringer X32-Q App (Android | Apple)

Multi-track Recording

Want a copy of the night's performance? I can either do a straight stereo recording to USB stick or we can discuss multi-track recording. Feel free to contact me about recording options.
