About Us

Otis and Trudy

As a musician growing up in the Bay Area, the diversity of the music scene inspired me.

At the age of 17, I began developing my stage experience and my interest in sound, lighting, and live-event production.

Later as a working keyboard player, I recorded with many musicians and bands, but my curiosity always drove me to learn the techniques and procedures that produced high-quality albums for radio airplay.

I founded Hear the Call Music in 2001 as a music recording and publishing company, in affiliation with BMI. But, as my experience grew and technology changed, I focused on my real passion — live event production.

My music background combined with my experience in live event AV in the SF Bay area found a new purpose with the 2020 Covid 19 outbreak and closures.

Live events (conferences, board meetings, fun-raisers, music) now all needed a new home. Streaming services like YouTube, Facebook, Zoom, Google Meets and WebEx, all became business necessities to assist in live streaming events.

With our dependable team, high-end equipment, and experience in tow, we now help companies bring professional sound, video and direction to their streaming event needs, with complete pre and post-production.

At Hear The Call AV we can produce any kind of small or medium-size video live streaming event. We are passionate about what we do and we would love the opportunity to learn more about your event AV needs. Located in Santa Cruz, we serve clientele throughout the greater SF Bay Area.
