Our Crew

ESS has identified and contracted with many independent contractors across the country. All have expertise in the live touring industry, similar to those noted here. All of them have contributed significantly in their respective areas of expertise, providing world class entertainers with top notch Lighting, Sound, Visuals and Automation.

All are currently no longer touring, due to Covid-19, and are readily available. ESS will pay them a fair wage in line with what they would make on tour.

These incredibly skilled technicians will install the equipment, integrate it with your system, and provide on-site or remote support to help you look and sound better in your online video conferences.

In addition to providing a superb, unique service to our clients, ESS is playing a big part in supporting these individuals and their families in these unprecedented times.

Fair Pay Promise badge

Our on-site and remote installers are all highly skilled professional touring technicians (road crew). Concerts were their livelihood. Their industry was the first to close, and will be the last to reopen. Our mission is to support them and their families. We will pay them a rate similar to what they would have earned on the road.
