Wilkes University Spring Fling

Over the years Wilkes University has been a great client and has utilized our services for many events.  This past Friday night we once again had the pleasure of performing for their annual Spring Fling dance at Genetti's in downtown Wilkes-Barre.  The kids were amazing and we rocked out all night!  We have recently purchased some heavy duty sound and Dj Hersh was able to cleanly and comfortably accommodate the approximately 10,000 sq foot room with ease.  Thanks to our new RCF 745A.MKII top ends the room was filled with clarity and thump.  Be sure when booking your dj's to inquire about their sound systems.  Talent, song selection, AND equipment make the difference.  #BeatTeks
