E-mail Print PDF

Mirage FBT install.MODESTO, CA – Celebrations in the Indian community are serious business. Festivals are typically an unrestrained blend of color, flavor and sound. And weddings, according to George Fontes, managing director of Fontes Pro Sound & Light, are nothing short of high-decibel exhilaration. So, when Mirage, an Indian wedding and banquet hall in Sacramento, CA, contacted him to install a new sound system last month, Fontes turned to FBT. He knew anything he installed would be pushed to concert-level limits and he wanted to ensure crisp, clean sound at every event – wherever guests were standing in 22,000 square feet of space.
