Upcoming Performances

(If you are interested in hiring The Sound Effect, we would encourage you to attend a rehearsal. Most of our performances are either private or involve a fee, so the best way to hear us live is during a rehearsal. Not only does it provide an intimate setting, it also gives us all a chance to better interact. Please consult our FAQS page for more information.)
