What is DUANE?
It starts with our founder and leader, Duane Tabinski. Over 25 years in the live event production business, Duane has staged events for the biggest names in music (Toby Keith, Old Crow Live, ZZ Top, Boston, Bob Dylan, Katy Perry) along with many large and small corporate events.
“There are four beliefs we bring to every event partner,” explains Duane.
“There are no problems, just solutions.
Make things work when they don’t want to.
Bring the ‘wow’ in on budget.
And the show will go on.”
Duane’s way of doing things is now also the DUANE Way of event production. The DUANE team personifies expertise in combining structures, lighting, video and the highest quality audio to provide the most impact for an event attendee — guaranteed to leave an impression and keep them coming back.
“Everyone at DUANE operates on the same commitment:
everything done is a reflection of personal responsibility.”

The DUANE Way
“We’ve seen too many companies treat clients as commodities,” relates Duane. “The conversation is one-sided. They focus on what’s not their responsibility, on avoiding liability, they only deliver on the basics — and nothing more. At DUANE, conversations are two-way and clients are partners. We’re all vested in the success of the event.”
“We have all the disciplines under one roof,” says Duane. “We can set more production resources into action, faster and at a better price than most any competitor.”
Educate where needed. Understand at every step. Elevate the professionalism Exceed expectations. That’s the DUANE Way.
Every DUANE engagement starts with defining the type of energy a client is looking for at their event. With that goal in mind, the team brings together the unique combination of sound, visuals and lighting to grab people’s attention — and truly engage the audience. That extends from the world’s largest stages and the biggest names in business — to our decades of partnering with emerging artists, venues and promoters, even under the tightest budgets.
