Third Avenue Center Concert Series (The Nylons, Canadian Brass), 2013-2014

For the last two events that I've produced, I've had the fortune of working with Night Owl. Not only has it been easy to plan and schedule for these events, but the concerts were perfect. The sound production was perfectly balanced and the lighting was matched note for note with the music.

Exceptionally strong team to work with, I highly recommend Night Owl and will make use of them anytime that I need light and sound.

The Children's Wish Foundation 2013  

The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada hosted on 9th Annual Wishmaker Walk for Wishes in Saskatoon, and we had the privilege of working with Bill Webster from Night Owl.  The music created the perfect fun and family-oriented atmosphere for the event, and the service was exceptional. Bill worked at the event, and was very friendly, personable, and set up an extra sound system for the Brend's School of Baton and Dance Optimist Twirling Connection Performance. It was a pleasure to work with this organization, and I would highly recommend Night Owl to anyone looking for sound systems and DJ services for any type of event.

Thank you Night Owl for your help with the 2013 Wishmaker Walk for Wishes!
Kindest Regards,
Megan Orr - Wishmaker Walk Coordinator The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada


Holy Cross 50th Anniversary, 2013

Hello Bill,

In so many ways, the Holy Cross High School 50th Anniversary celebrations were a great success. The entire organizing committee would like to thank you for helping us make the weekend so special. Your services ensured that our thanksgiving celebration was a place where the Crusader Family could reconnect with each other in a meaningful way. We feel blessed to be a part of the Saskatoon community. Once again please accept our heartfelt thanks.

Warm regards,
Vic Karwacki

Color Me RAD 2013 (contracted 2014)

I highly recommend Night Owl Entertainment for any event that you might be planning. They are very easy to work with and listen carefully so they can fully understand your vision and deliver to exceed your expectations. Being from the U.S hiring an entertainment company whose service can literally make or break your event is quite a challenge to know who to go with. After a couple of phone conversations with Bill and his team we had a good feeling about Night Owl and trusted our instinct. We are very glad we did! We have set up over 12 events with 8,000 + people in attendance this year across the country and Night Owl provided the best quality and service yet.

Wish we could take them everywhere.

Employee Appreciation Picnic, 2013

Hello Andy,

I just wanted to say that it was really a pleasure to work with your company on planning the sound requirements for this year's University of Saskatchewan Employee Appreciation Picnic.  From my initial inquiry right through to the end of event day you were friendly, courteous and gave excellent customer service.  In my position as Events Coordinator for the department of Advancement and Community Engagement, I have to work with a wide variety of businesses, suppliers, service providers, entertainers, venues and retail outlets and one thing that I always appreciate is attention to customer care. I am always happy to reward a company or individual that is able to give top notch service with my continued loyalty as a client and I always go out of my way to act as an ambassador for companies that I enjoy working with.  I have already sung the praises of Night Owl to others who are involved with planning events on campus and otherwise in the city and I look forward to many more opportunities to work together.

Many thanks for the hard work of you and your crew.

Kind Regards,
Charlene HowardEvents Coordinator

Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra, 2013, 2014

My experience has been that Andy Webster and Night Owl Audio provides top quality comprehensive professional audio support for a variety of sized venues and projects. Thier most recent work in providing sound reinforcement for the Metro Jazz Ensemble (a.k.a. Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra) at our 3rd Avenue United Church Ellington concert was simply superb. Top quality sound, top quality professionalism. I'd work with Night Owl Audio again anytime, anywhere.

St. Pauls Hospital Foundation, Mistletoe Ball, Nov. 2012 

Bill and Andy,

Thanks so much for your work with the St. Paul's Hospital Foundation on our 23rd Annual Mistletoe Charity Ball.  Working with your team at Night Owl was fantastic. Your expertise in sound and lighting was very valuable in fulfilling our music, lighting and audio needs. We had nothing but positive comments on the music at the Mistletoe Charity Ball. Thank you for ensuring we did not have to worry about anything audio related that night. It made our evening very enjoyable. I would recommend Night Owl to others.

Sincerely,

Mistletoe Charity Ball 2012

Hello Bill.

On behalf of Frogsback, I want to thank you and your entire team for your excellent service at the Mistletoe Charity Ball on November 17, 2012.

The sound and lighting were simply great. Your team were also extremely personable, professional and helpful. We all found it very easy to work with all of you. It was a real pleasure to do a show with your group and we would jump (hop?) at the chance to do it again. Great work!

Best regards,
Brian Kenny, on behalf of Frogsback.

International Saskatchewan Salsa & Bachata Congress, 2012, 2013

Night Owl Audio was incredible in every aspect. Providing the right equipment, the right personnel (thanks Andy), and professional beyond belief. If you are touring Saskatchewan then Night Owl Audio is your only choice. These guys handle an 8 piece latin band so naturally. Sound - perfect, delivery of FOH sound - perfect, onstage monitor - perfect and attentive! Thanks to everyone that took incredible care of us!

Cabelas Saskatoon Grand Opening, 2012

Hello Andy & Bill 

Thanks so much for providing us with such great service for our Grand Opening in May 2012. I really appreciate you being available to answer all of my questions and providing the equipment to meet our needs. Brad Johner and the Johner Boys were a big hit and sounded fantastic. Your team is very professional, the sound quality is excellent and you were all super to work with. 

Thanks very much,

Bill, Andrew, and all,

Thank you so much for doing such a great job on the sound at the Cabelas Grand Opening. You are all so great to work with and I will be recommending you to everyone in need of great sound and light production. The boys were a bit nervous working with someone else's gear but found it so easy to work with you guys. Great Job!!!

Trek for Tourette, 2012

On behalf of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada - Saskatoon Chapter, we would like to thank Night Owl Entertainment for the use of your sound equipment for our Trek for Tourette fundraiser, held at the Victoria Boathouse this past Sunday. With over 100 registered "Trekkers" the event was an overwhelming success, raising thousands of dollars for Tourette research and programs.

One of the key elements to the event success was your sound system. Not only was it easy to assemble and operate but provided an extremely clear and inviting sound for the event. The ability to plug our iPod into the system, for pre-event music, really assisted in establishing an "audible" gathering place for all participants. The wired microphone was clear as a bell and the remote mic allowed our Zumba instructor to interact and build on the crowd's enthusiasm.

On a personal note, your customer service ensuring all components were tested prior to the event, and your time and patience to explain how to operate and set up the system was greatly appreciated.

Again, please accept our thanks for helping to make our event the success it was.

Sincerely,
Jason Brockman,
Trek for Tourette


University of Saskatchewan Huskies Hockey, 2012

Bill,

The U of S Huskies can not thank Night Owl enough for their hard work and professionalism during the men's hockey Canada West Finals. Bill and the crew were a lot of fun to work with, even though their workload increased as the series went to game three and ended in a triple overtime victory. They proved to have a high level of experience and knowledge, as they knew exactly how to set up their equipment in the old Rutherford Rink to make the championship weekend a great event for our fans and players! I would highly recommend the Night Owl crew for any live sporting event.

Karen Finley,
Events Director, Huskie Athletics


Eclipse Chorus, 2011

We have used Night Owl for our past two concerts and have been more than pleased with their sound and their professionalism. They bring a good attitude and respect to the table along with their superior knowledge. I would highly recommend them as your choice for sound/lighting.

Ag-Bag-Drag, 2011, 2012

Hi Bill,

Just a quick note of thanks to you and the crew for your fine work at our recent performance for the U of S students' big Ag-Bag-Drag event. As a six-piece live band performing in a large, packed venue with naturally poor acoustic qualities we really rely on the sound crew to pull it together quickly to deliver our sound the very best it can be, out front for our fans. You did a great job. And please share our thanks with your crew too. They are a professional team, you can hear it, see it, and they really add to the pleasure of the event. Thanks again!

Lisa,

Rock the Mount, 2011/2012
www.rockthemount.com

Hey Bill and crew!

Thank you for your professionalism, yet easy-going approach to handling our outdoor venue, Rock the Mount. I especially appreciated your thoroughness and desire to bring our desires to the forefront and turn up the end result 10 notches beyond what we wanted. You read the crowd well and handled with ease the added pressure of a few wrinkles thrown at you by us. Kudos, Andrew, on the mix and sound checks and ironing them out! Heard lots of good things about you prior, and will pass on my recommendations. It was a pleasure working with you.

Best regards,
Luke Wickenhauser,

Counseil des ecoles fransaskoises, 2011
Hi Bill,
We've been doing business for many years with Night Owl Audio and they've always been really professional. This year was no different; the guys came on time, they understood our need and we were able to deliver quite a show thanks to their involvement. No doubt that next time we need technical sounds and services, we'll deal with them.

  • Mock Wedding
  • Real Irish Riot
  • Monster Mash

 

Hi Bill: 

Thanks a lot for the Mock Wedding gig.  My band and I think that you guys are first class people.  What I mean by that is; you told us to be there at a certain time for sound check/set up, and sure as hell your boys were ready on time for us.  Plus there was no "bitching" from your crew, no matter what we wanted - more monitors, or "what-evers" - you and your guys were very professional working with us. We've done some pretty BIG shows in the past with BIG sound, and I think you guys rate right up there with the "big boys"!  You're very good at it, plus we heard a lot of good things about the front production from other people that were there.  So thanks again, and keep rockin'!

Volunteer Recognition Gala,  April 10th, 2011

Hi Bill,

The Saskatoon Health Region recently hosted their annual event for Volunteer Recognition at Prairieland Park. Every three years we host a large gala for the whole region. The theme this year was "Volunteers Create Magic" and we had over 400 volunteers in attendance.

Night Owl Entertainment was hired as our sound and lighting supplier for the event. They brought in and supplied top quality sound, lighting and staff to enhance our event so that when the volunteers came into the venue they were "wowed".

The staff and management of Night Owl Entertainment were very accommodating, offering suggestions on how to maximize the lighting for our decor and providing some extras that helped tie the theme and decor all together.

If you require any professional music, sound and/or lighting for your event, I would recommend this company!

Yours truly,

Jackie Edwards,

Bill your easy going-ness as a person shows and flows through your entire staff and production, and allows us to get the quality service we need. Talking about service, your one-stop package of sound production and lighting was the best!

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure was held on October 3, 2010, and Night Owl Entertainment supplied the sound system for the event.  It was the first year Bill had worked with us and it was a pleasure.  Night Owl Entertainment staff were very professional and extremely easy to work with.  They were at the site late Saturday night to make sure everything was ready to go on Sunday morning.  Everything went very well and we will definitely have Night Owl Entertainment at our event next year.

I would highly recommend Night Owl Entertainment for your next event.

Andrew,

We can't thank you enough for sharing your time and talent to make Hoops for Hope such an awesome event. The tone for the tournament was set right from the start because of your excellent music, and it carried on throughout the day with your enthusiastic comments to keep the players and volunteers informed and positive, The event certainly would not have been the same without you there. We hope you will join us again next year as we have big dreams for Hoops for Hope.

Sincerely,

Dope Show!  You upped the quality of our performances - not by overshadowing, but by enhancing our dancers!  Just what we wanted.

Anita Kai, def SOL Productions


Hi Bill,

I had the pleasure of working with Night Owl at the CIBC Run for the Cure.  As someone who works with different production crews, and different sound technicians each and every weekend, I feel confident in saying that Bill and the crew at Night Owl are the cream of the crop.  They are very friendly and courteous (which seems to be rare in this industry) and provide high quality and professional production and lighting.  I will definitely work with Night Owl again.  I recommend you give them a call for your event.  You won't be disappointed...

Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon/September 2010

Dear Bill:

Some time has passed since my episcopal ordination and each day I reflect back with gratitude for all the people who made it such a joyous and special celebration. You are among those people.

As I reflect on my ordination and my new role as Bishop I give thanks to God for the many blessings I received through the efforts of people I have come to know and cherish.

I realize this thank you is somewhat belated, however, I do want to express my sincere and profound gratitude for the great gift your help and your presence was to me. Thank you for what you contributed to the ordination itself and the events surrounding it, particularly through your audio expertise. Your efforts were a blessing to the diocese and to me.

Donald Bolen

Bishop of Saskatoon.

Ms. Terri Rau, President  2010,2011,2012

Dear Bill;

On behalf of the Executive and members of the Saskatoon Caribbean-Canadian Cultural Association (SCCCA), we would like to say a big "Thank You" for working with our pavilion this year during Folkfest 2010.

We were thrilled to have the quality of entertainment service that you, your staff and your high-quality equipment provided us as we entertained almost 30,000 patrons during Folkfest. We feel you went out of your way to help us ensure a successful event. We appreciate throwing in the bubble machine to enhance our theme, "Under the Sea."

We can honestly say that our pavilion could not have been as successful without your expertise and great staff. The sound quality was amazing and we have already decided that we would like to continue this relationship and level of sound quality for our patrons next year.

I would be very pleased to recommend your services to anyone looking for a quality Entertainment Service Provider.

Thank you again!
Terri Rau
President

St. Denis Centennial Celebration

We are very happy with your professionalism in meeting the needs of the multiple facets of this three-day event. You found the equipment necessary to make our evening concerts and plays a success, ensuring that all could enjoy it.

Our musicians and actors appreciated the sound knowledge you provided them. Your music choices suited the group and made the Saturday night dance exceptional.

Thank you very much for your readiness and willingness to accommodate our needs with your flexible support throughout the weekend. I am very happy with the weekend's results and recommend that all try your services to ensure the success of their event.

St. Thomas More College, Newman Centre Coffee House, March 2010:
Night Owl provided an excellent service at a very good price.  They provided us with quality equipment, arrived with it on time, and set it up quickly and efficiently.  They were able to accommodate all of the acts we had, from singing to guitars, keyboards, a violin, a four-person rock band, and even a group of break dancers.  We were very happy with their service, and will almost certainly have them out again.

Saskatoon Catholic Diocese, Episcopal Ordination, March 2010:

Our committee was most happy with the professional service provided by Night Owl Audio for the episcopal ordination of Saskatoon’s Catholic bishop March 25, 2010. Bringing in additional equipment in an efficient and timely manner, the Night Owl Audio professionals ensured quality sound for the 1300 people attending this important event in the life of our diocese. The liturgy required multiple microphones, as well as balancing the sounds of three choirs, a smaller singing group, and a number of musicians. We greatly appreciated how well the Night Owl team worked with volunteers and ensured that the sound requirements during all parts of the liturgy were addressed.

Communications Coordinator

Huskie Cheerleading Open 2010 & 2011

I can confidently say that HuskieOpen 2010 was the best cheerleading competition Saskatchewan has ever seen!  We have been running this competition for over a decade and with Night Owl we again raised the bar.  Bill and Evan were nothing but professional allowing our team to focus on the competition knowing the sound and presentation was taken care of.  Thanks for a great show Bill, start thinking about next year: Bigger and Better!

St. Anne's Parish Coffee House 2010              

Dear Bill,

Thanks a million for all your help with our January 29th Coffee House event.  You and your staff were more than helpful when it came to providing equipment and excellent live sound production.   Since it was our first event of this nature in our new parish hall, we were all "winging it" a bit.  It was impressive to see how much lighting and sound gear you brought along.  It set the standard way above our expectations.  We'll definitely have you back next year when we do this event again!  You were prompt and put in a lot of hours to make sure everything went smoothly.  Keep up the great work!

Sheldon Rioux
St. Anne's Parish - Saskatoon


Folkfest 2012-2014, Irish Pavillion:

I've been a part of the Irish Pavillion for 17 years, and since we've had Night Owl Entertainment working with us, we've had the best sound and production out of any pavillion at Folkfest.  The crew is very professional and upbeat, and you will never find a more fun group of people to provide quality production for your event.  The Irish Pavillion will never book a company other than Night Owl Entertainment.

John Montgomery, Folkfest Irish Pavillion Manager

 


2nd Avenue Sidewalk Sale, 2010, 2011, 2012

Thanks again for your wonderful work at the Downtown Sidewalk Sale.  Your experience, knowledge of the industry & professionalism in working with a variety of people throughout this event was amazing.  The music was chosen perfectly to accommodate the event and we couldn't be more pleased.  We received a lot of very positive feedback from the Downtown Merchants.  So, we thank you for being a big part in making our event a huge success!
