Plan Your Summer Musical Event

Summer Musical EventLive bands are great for any event where you have an abundance of people and nothing compares with the experience of having a live band.

Musical events are a great way to get people out to enjoy live music, and promote new artists. Live music gets people up and moving, and keeps attendees of all ages from getting bored. These bands are great because they can play a variety of musical genres and project high energy for the crowd.

At a summer musical event, you can have upwards of 1000 or more people in attendance and you want an entertainment choice that suits all musical interests as well as something that is appealing to watch.

You can expect there to be plenty of dancing and music and fun at any summer musical event. The whole city and beyond is invited, and the festival is an all-day affair of talented musicians who you might not normally see.

These occasions provide a very informal, casual and fun time for people to stand around and listen to artists they love or are not familiar with.

Whether you plan on one stage or multiple stages, there must be solid musical entertainment and sound production. While bands will have their own instruments and roadies, it is important to have the right sound stage equipment to project the great music to the masses.

That is exactly what you can expect from Studio 33 Productions.

Start your planning early –summer is right around the corner – and now is the perfect time to not only set up your musical festival or event, but also secure your musical entertainment and sound stage productions.

The summer season is typically an especially busy time for production companies, and dates fill up quick.

Guarantee an open date for your event and call us today to reserve Studio 33 for your event.

We are booking for the summer months now, so give us a call at 909-783-1628 today to learn more about our availability or to reserve us for your music event.

Gearing Up For Summer Concert Series

Gearing Up For Summer Concert SeriesWhen the winter chill finally disappears, one of the best outdoor activities to engage in is an outdoor concert. There’s nothing like being outside in the fresh air, surrounded by other eager fans as you wait for the band to play on the big stage. Not only is the music addicting, it’s the overall atmosphere that an outdoor concert series brings.

There are two Concerts for the “In The Park” series that are worth going to: Lake Arrowhead Arts at Tavern Bay and City of Fontana Concerts In The Park.

During the summer months you can gather up a blanket, bottle of wine and snacks to accommodate you as you enjoy the music, the people and the scenery.

At Lake Arrowhead Arts at Tavern Bay, you can celebrate the local students as they perform pieces learned throughout the year. Thursday’s in July there will also be a Summer Music Festival with three bands playing iconic hits that we’ve all come to love.

The City of Fontana Concerts In The Park is a great way to ring in summer. The stage is set just perfectly for all guests to enjoy the musicians. Running from June to August, guests can enjoy free music as well as activity booths for children and food.

There is a lot of preparation involved for a concert series. You will definitely have to be prepared for unforeseen weather with a stage overhang and protection for sound systems and electrical wiring.

Aside from the safety aspect, you want your guests to get the best musical experience ever. This involves unique lighting, a superior sound system, a fog system for added effects, and an ample stage.

Having the experience to not only set up these systems in a timely manner, but to also hide cords and unsightly equipment takes skill and patience. In order to continue providing concert series and festivals, you have to provide professional stage set up services.

Studio 33 is known for professional stage set up including lighting and special effects. We have a lot of experience setting up for concerts and festivals. You can learn more about our services by contacting us.

Easter Outdoor Venues & Live Events

Easter Outdoor Venues & Live EventsSunday, April 5th, 2015 will be the day that everyone knows as Easter Sunday. Depending on what they day means to you, can depend on what activities you might engage in. Those of Christian faith believe it is the oldest and most important festival of the church, in which they celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Easter is a great time to get your church’s congregation together; family, friends and those who want to celebrate, all in one spot to be together on the day that Christ rose up from the grave. You can even bring several churches together from across other towns, cities, and around the state. Make a week of it or just a few days, but the general idea is to get the message across to the masses. But how can you pull the event off so that it’s high-class, and not too gaudy, giving everyone the ability to hear the mass?

The average Easter outdoor event will need to include:

And more! There are many moving parts to a successful live outdoor event. The idea is to get it done right and to make the people who attend, comfortable. This goes doubly on a holy day like Easter.

Providing For Your Private Business Party

private business partyThe words “corporate party” may not seem like anyone’s idea of a great time. The thought of spending more time around the people you work with could sound boring, stressful or even worse. If you’re planning a business event for your employees or coworkers, there are many ways you can spice up an evening with special effects to make business look a lot more like fun.

What do you think of when you think of a business party? Probably a lot of drab boardrooms, some paper decorations hanging on the wall and a few baked goods with coffee, if you’re lucky. Do a little more homework, though, and you’ll see that you have plenty of options to make a corporate get-together feel like a major social event.

Music can make any gathering perk up and get moving, shaking everyone out of their workday doldrums. If you want a disk jockey to spin tracks for your business party, a DJ rig can help set you up with the equipment you need to turn up the volume on rock, pop, blues or whatever style of music will make your guests enjoy themselves.

Lighting is another way to take any simple announcement party or business gathering into a totally new direction. It’s hard to take yourself too seriously when a disco ball is hanging in the middle of the room, throwing colored drops of light against the wall at all angles. Strobe lights, black lights, programmable moving light displays and various other lighting applications can be easily set up in a space, turning any office space into a downtown nightclub scene.

With Studio 33, there’s almost no end to the various setups we can provide for your private business party. We can provide many pieces of equipment, like snow machines or confetti cannons, which can fire up the imaginations of any event attendee. For a more mysterious setting, such as for an announcement, we can bring ground fog and smoke machines that will create a cloud of vapor which can truly change the atmosphere.

Studio 33 would love to help you jazz up your next corporate event. If your company event is in Southern California or Inland Empire, give us a call and you’ll see just how many options you have for crafting a great party for your colleagues!

Are You Ready For Holiday Stage Productions and Lighting Installations?

Of summer, Shakespeare writes, “And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.” It’s already September. Can you believe that?

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve…

Just hearing those words can send a bolt of apprehension spiraling through your body. Oh no! The gift buying, the gatherings, the parties, the stress. For some, it’s their least favorite time of the year. Really, who can blame them? What about summer? Regardless of your feelings, now’s the time to start planning for your holiday stage productions and lighting installations. But first – let’s talk about summer.

Studio 33 summer recap: a season of portable stages

For many communities across the country, summer is the time for concert series that highlights local talent, from musicians to dancing and everything in between. Studio 33 is proud to provide the proper setting for such entertainment, with its high-quality portable staging equipment.

A portable stage can be set up in any type of space, easily and efficiently. When you rely on Studio 33 for your staging needs, we can offer you a wide variety of options. From small stages for single performers to expansive platforms for large groups, we can build stages of any size.

We have almost no limits in regards to the location of your venue. For example, we can build your stage in a flat field or a on a hill. We also have no limits when it comes to height. Are you interested in a stage that comes only a few feet off the ground, or maybe one that extends high into the sky? So far this summer, we have set up a variety of different stages.

We understand that every event is different, which is why we try to give our customers as many choices as possible. There are even several customizations available, including wheel chair ramps and roofs. Although most of our stages are done or already booked, we will still answer any questions regarding stages for events, so get in touch with the team!

Heading into fall and winter

California portable stagesAs we head into fall and winter, one thing usually comes to mind: parties…holiday parties. Whether it’s a Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve party, Studio 33 has all of your entertainment needs covered, especially when it comes to dance and music.

What’s a party without music and dancing? What’s a party without a DJ? Thankfully, you can rent DJ equipment from Studio 33 and, in particular, a DJ system with CD player, mixer, one microphone, two powered FBT 2A-speakers on tripod stands, with cables. You can rent all of this for just $150! If you’re more ambitious than that, additional sound equipment is available as well, not to mention dance floors. Such rentals will take any party to that next level!

You may have music already covered for your autumnal gatherings. If that’s the case, we have other rentals that will improve a party, such as a fog machine, perfect for that creepy Halloween party. At Studio 33, we believe that every party or event should possess an aesthetic flair, creating a memorable atmosphere. It’s all about building the mood.

Music and dancing: check. Mood: check. What other piece of equipment should the party thrower rent? Well…you can’t go wrong with a photo booth. It’s perfect for that Halloween party (or any party, for that matter). What better way to remember a ghoulish night than to hop in a photo booth with some friends? With so many packages to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding the right one for your party.

Having a successful event or party depends on many factors, but one thing is certain: with Studio 33’s help, your fall and winter parties will be out of this world! If you are in the California or the Western United States area, contact us today!

Photo Booth Rentals Are Perfect For Any Type of Event

With summer in full swing, you may already be in the middle of planning your next party or event. Whether you are throwing a birthday celebration, an anniversary party, or even a wedding, it is important to capture the beautiful, funny, and heartwarming memories that will take place throughout the day. When you rent a photo booth for your event, you are essentially renting a time machine that can help take you back to that special day any time you want.

Photo booths are becoming more and more popular, as they are not only a great way to capture memories, but they also allow your guests to have a little extra fun. For example, photo booths can help you quickly create perfect souvenirs for all of your guests. Better yet, your friends and family members can take pictures with people they may not get to see very often, only adding to their enjoyment. Once the event is over, you can keep the photos for yourself and make copies for your loved ones.

A photo booth rental will also help your party stand out from the rest. Although they are popular, photo booths are not necessarily ordinary things that people get to try every day. The fact that your event has a photo booth will be an exciting memory in and of itself. If you think a photo booth would be the terrific addition to your next event, contact the professionals at Studio 33!

Our customizable photo booth is perfect for occasions big and small. It could be an extravagant wedding or it could be a fire station event. By having our attendants run the photo booth, you can relax and enjoy the event, knowing the photo booth is being efficiently operated. Packages include: a friendly photo booth host (an attendant), touch screen monitor, double prints 2×6, customizable print boarders, fast print cycles, private uploads to online gallery, CD of all images and much, much more! Fun and interesting props of all kinds can be added. How about the ladies wearing mustaches? Men wearing boas?

If you are in the California or the Western United States area, and interested a photo booth for your next event, please contact us! Moreover, remember what Dorothea Lange said: “Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”

At Studio 33, It Will be a Summer of LEDs

California LEDsLED lights, also known as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), are changing the way people celebrate. At Studio 33, we have hundreds of them, and installed thousands.

According to the G4 Report, LED lights are being used to illuminate everything you can think of, from Baptist Churches to outdoor musical festivals.  LEDs are the most sustainable lights on the market, possessing a longer burn and life (up to 50,000 hours, maybe more) than your typical incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, not to mention that incandescent and fluorescent bulbs waste energy by spreading light in all directions and giving off heat.

For places like a small Church, wasting energy is very costly, and is a big drain on the budget, taking money away from other areas, like helping the community. By embracing LEDs, Churches are able to save money and work the air conditioning less, not to mention strengthening the aesthetic and visceral experience of attending a service. LEDs are more vivid in color than traditional lighting and are simply more enjoyable to look at.

Festivals are also hopping aboard the LED train, as the lights take the festival experience to the next level, pleasing attendees, but also saving on energy and money. It is really a win-win situation. Whether it is a concert tour, nightclub, theater presentation or tradeshow, LEDs add a much-needed sustainable flare to any event.

Studio 33 used 48 wash LEDs and 6 Moving LEDs on an outdoor concert series with national artists. The lighting combined with the efficient sound system used 22 amps at the peak power consumption. Studio 33 uses 48 outdoor rated LEDs at the Folsom outdoor ice rink for a unique night club type experience.

We provide the customer with a full event LED package, including LED curtains and much more. What this means is that we are there from beginning to end, helping with the setup as well as teardown, and anything else you might need. Our professional crews and designers are at your disposal. We will make sure your “event” utilizes size and efficiency, has lower temperatures and, most importantly, a long life!

If you are in the California or the Western United States area, and interested in light-emitting diodes lighting up YOUR life, please contact us! Remember, as Robert Alden puts it, “There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle.”

Community Ice Rinks for the Holidays Have Many Benefits

It is your first date with that special someone. You want something romantic, but not overindulgently romantic. You need a balance between romance and fun. Then it hits you: ice-skating. You see it in the movies all the time, a couple holding hands and ice-skating. It is always fun looking, unless someone is clumsy and falls, but even then, it always bonds the couple and takes the date to that next level. Thankfully, your community hired outside contractors to build a top-of-the-line ice rink. It has been the talk of the town.

Welcome to our blog!

At Studio 33, we install and operate complete turnkey ice rinks made of all real ice! If your community or town is thinking of installing an ice rink, now is the time to do it. Not many people think of ice rinks at this time of the year, but the installation does take some time. Imagine having that breathtaking ice rink ready to go when fall hits (it will be here before you know it)!

An ice rink brings the community together, functioning almost like a town square. It benefits any community from top to bottom, from the elderly to little children. There can be birthday parties, hockey games, figure skating competitions and many other activities. Additionally, an ice rink will benefit local merchants, as they can sponsor teams and set up advertisements. Most importantly, perhaps, is that a community ice rink provides a safe and entertaining place for the whole family to hang out. Not only is an ice rink the perfect recreational spot for any family, it is also a boost to the local economy.


Folsom California ice rink


My name is Brian Jackson and I founded Studio 33 back in 1986. Since then, we have installed countless seasonal ice rinks in many communities, Folsom California being a recent and unique one. We are the best in the business when it comes to ice rink installations. If you are in the California or the Western United States area, please contact us. Follow this blog and stay up to date with any of Studio 33’s exciting projects and events!
