Former R&R Sound general manager Patrick Coughlin has just ordered new business cards—he’s opened a Northern California (Lodi, Calif.) office as an adjunct to North Hollywood’s U.S. Audio & Lighting. This all-L-Acoustics sound reinforcement company partnered with the P.A. manufacturer for the audio install at the Hollywood Bowl and plans to tackle similar projects in the Northern California area.

A studio and live sound engineer for 26 years, Coughlin has several Gold and Platinum records and a Grammy nomination, and has done countless festivals, tours, one-offs and installations. “I did my first show for U.S. Audio in early February in Miami at the American Airlines Arena. It was the ‘Save Ourselves’ benefit for Haiti live televised concert. We dove right in with five consoles, plus a recording and TV truck with about 95 inputs, six hangs of P.A. and artists like Mary J. Blige, Wyclef Jean, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Busta Rhymes, India.Arie, Robin Thicke and several more, MC’d by Queen Latifah and Sean Diddy Combs, and featured an appearance by former president Bill Clinton.

“I was very impressed by the U.S. Audio staff and equipment, headed up by U.S. Audio crew chief Brian Murray,” Coughlin continues. “The show was a huge success, and I knew that this was a great move and a great fit for me. We look forward to offering great technicians, state-of-the-art equipment and service to our old and new clients with the addition of our new Northern California shop!”
