AA&A Live & Installed Sound Alumni Run Sound at the 2015 NFL Draft in Chicago

Most everyone knows that Chicago recently hosted the 2015 NFL Draft festivities (April 30 – May 2, 2015). Only few know that eight AA&A alumni and one current student from our Live & Installed Sound degree major led or held key positions on most stages set up for the event. Under ECTO Productions, an alumni-owned A/V Production company based in Elmhurst, IL, they worked on state of the art equipment (including Meyer Sound’s LYON line array loudspeakers) to deliver professional audio throughout the three days of events. We are excited to introduce these accomplished graduates to you:

Site Audio Lead:
    Alex Sostarich (2008)
Music Stage:
    Robert Jones (2007) – Crew Chief / Monitors
    Joe King (2003*) – Patch Master
    David Martinez (2015) – Front-of-House Engineer
“Draft Town” (large tent structure):
    Aaron Davis (2004) – Systems Tech
“Combine” (fan activity zone):
    Elliott Little (2010) – Systems Tech
“Play 60” (kids activity zone):
    Trevor Roberts (2016) – Systems Tech
Visa Fan Experience Booth:
    Richard Schroeder (2013) – Systems Tech
Logistical Support:

Congratulations, Team! This project was a major challenge, watched by thousands live and broadcast to millions. You make us proud!
