This project is perhaps one of the most significant projects we have ever worked on. We are providing the lighting for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day at the D-Day Memorial in Bedford Virginia. We were privileged to handle production for the opening of this Memorial back in 2001 and have been brought back to light the VPOTUS and surroundings on June 6th as he commemorates this momentous occasion in our nation's history.

Draughon Brothers Inc. Ran Superb Sound at Suwannee Rising • MUSICFESTNEWS

As a sound company, we strive to provide quality service to every customer we work for regardless of budget, space, time constraints or other typical pitfalls. Our best days are those that we go completely unnoticed by the audience...transparent. We are simply' there' if you will. It is a rare occurrence that a music critic will take notice and actually report on their experiences as it relates to sound for an event. Scott Hopkins of Music Fest News www.musicfestnews.com took the time to write two separate articles on an event we were privileged to work. We thank Scott for his review of the Festival and his feature of our work.

Another great project that we worked on was Cheer Limited at the Raleigh Convention Center where we installed a huge 72x64 stage with an amazing sound system and a stunning light system. Moreover, we can’t forget about our LED Video Wall system with the newest, most advance technology that is used nowadays. #EventProduction #DBI #CheerLimited #LEDVideoWall #Production

..and there was light...

The Cool Spring District team here in our hometown of Fayetteville NC brought DBI in to set up a permanent light in the 100 Block of Hay Street. The Dicken's Holiday presented by The Fayetteville Cumberland County Arts Council is one of the first of many events and groups to be featured on this medium.

We deployed a special exterior fixture from our Martin Lighting inventory for the project. Tonight is the first night and we are happy with the early results. This project, from the projection geometry to the programming, has been quite challenging. Here are a few pictures and video of the programming in the shop.

Thank you Draughon Brothers, Inc. for helping Sampson County Parks & Recreation with a solution for a scoreboard malfunction. Taking the extra time to help us with a solution saved the day!!!
Droughon Brothers loaded in a show for me today at the Crown Coliseum. Gary, Alex and all the crew we're absolutely the best today I've ever seen them. They did a tremendous job today. I've been doing this a lot of years they have come together as a team. That is very hard to do in this business. I do not post a lot on Facebook. But I've got to let everyone know that they have done an excellent job and continue to do so. Very proud of those guys. Kelvin bring them all together and let them know that they have come a long way to be an excellent team. And everybody should be very proud. Keep up the good work. I think very highly of everyone.
