Diverse Events +More Make for a Wonderful April...

Dallas Light and Sound is thankful to our clients for providing a very busy and creative April, with three very diverse events already completed, weddings at Texas Discovery Gardens, a Friday night date with Audrey Hepburn, and one more major event to go before month end. Two of April's events took place at the Frontiers of Flight Museum - one of our favorite facilities in Dallas. A fashion show followed by a gala fundraiser saw two different approaches to the space. To find out more about all four, read on!

The finale of Fashion CITED 2014 - A Style Event proved why this
fashion show is one of the most eagerly anticipated of the year
Legal Hospice of Texas turned out a record breaking crowd for Fashion Cited: A Style Event 2014, held Thursday, April 3, 2014 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum.

2014 Honorary Chair Rhonda Sargent Chambers, the honorary host committee, the Lawyers of Style, WFAA New Anchor Ron Corning as MC, and some of the biggest names in fashion came together for one of the most anticipated and exciting fashion shows in North Texas!

Our second major event for April involved turning a nightclub into a theatre to host a performance by actor, author and comic - Emmy Award Winner Leslie Jordan.

The Round-Up Saloon is a country dancehall -and our job was o turn it inot a performance venue
suitable for an Emmy Award Winner.

Emmy Award Winner Leslie Jordan is unbelievably funny.
He looks great standing in front of an exclusive Stage Backdrop designed
and installed by Dallas Light and Sound.
Who knew.... a country saloon transformed into a theater? Dallas Light and Sound, under the direction of event designer Craig Canant, transformed the Round Up Saloon and Dancehall into a seated performance venue for the Dallas appearance of comic, actor and author Leslie Jordan. With Co-Emcess Ron Corning from WFAA News 8 Daybreak and America's Sassiest Lifestyle Guru Steve Kembel, more than 300 patrons turned out to support the US House candidacy of Oklahoma's Al McAfree.
