Chad DeFrancoHaving grown up in the audio industry mixing front-of-house and working with sound systems since he was 11 years old, DeFranco started engineering at Panama Beach, Florida’s, famed Club LaVela-the largest nightclub in the US, with a capacity of 6,000-at the age of 15 and continued there for 15 years. He went on to found DeFranco Productions, where he designed and installed sound-reinforcement and lighting systems, mixed FOH and monitors for major artists, designed custom sound systems for recording studios and home theatres, and served as a system engineer, master electrician, and consultant.
