"I have had the distinct pleasure of working with JC Lara as my sound engineer on many projects. What an incredible talent JC is. His knowledge as an engineer is outstanding. He has the uncanny ability to enhance any ensembles' performance regardless of how dead the room is. His work ethic is exemplary. Our big productions at Shepherd Church with a full professional orchestra and 80 voice choir were amazing because of JC's expertise and collaborative skills with the shepherd team. I would not even consider doing these massive events without JC Lara. Thank you JC for all of the great shows we have had the opportunity to produce together. You are an incredible blessing!"

As chairman of the Band and Sound & Lighting committee of the Altadena Rotary
Charities Summer Concert Series, I can highly recommend Juan Lara and JCL
Productions for any of your sound and lighting requirements. Altadena Rotary has a
four-year relation with JCL and we have enjoyed outstanding service for the entire
period. Juan and his production crew have been constantly improving audio and
lighting equipment and techniques to provide the best possible audio experience for our
growing concert audience. Our audience feedback regarding JCL and the sound quality
has been overwhelmingly positive and we have received many requests for JCL contact
information from similar organizations.
JCL and the entire hard-working crew handle all of our sound and lighting tasks in a
professional, dependable and independent manner, including complete coordination
with our bands and stage set-up and tear-down. Juan is a pleasure to work with and
completely responsive to all of the many new requirements and changes that we
experience during each concert season.
I am happy to discuss our JCL experience with anyone thinking of the best solutions to
their sound and lighting needs - I believe JCL can provide the best possible results for
JC handled lighting, arranged staging, and set up and ran sound for our church's various musical events and really took things up a few notches production wise, on so many levels. Absolutely no question. JC takes supreme pride in his team, his gear, and he also excels at FOH (front of house) and YouTube broadcast mixing. Not only that, but he has state-of -the-art visual media down also, with great camera coverage. Whatever we threw at him, whether it was guitarists, keyboardists, pianists, vocalists, soloists, several small combo ensembles, JC handled it all smoothly and in stride and was thoroughly competent and professional, every step of the way. He's great to work with
We are incredibly pleased with the JCL Productions. JC Lara was in charge of the sound production and stage set up for a large fundraiser concert with a string orchestra and soloists for our son. He went far and beyond his responsibilities. He is passionate about his work and exudes enthusiasm for what he does. He is professional and detail oriented. The fundraiser concert was a great success in large part because of the exceptional work that JC did. He even surprised us with a large projected sign with our son's name, all because of the generosity with which he approaches every project. He puts a lot of effort and heart into everything he does. He is also extremely experienced, honest and well respected in the music world

JC Lara is a true professional who is highly skilled, and for our mini-concert event, went above, and beyond what was asked. He is on time, prepared, friendly, and committed to making whatever the event is great. The lighting, sound and visuals he provided elevated the whole evening. We loved working with him.
JC Lara and his team provided the sound and lighting for two singer-songwriter nights I played in 2022, and both looked and sounded amazing! We got so many positive comments about the concerts on how great it looked and sounded. He transformed the space into an intimate performance venue which made for a memorable experience for both the audience and the performers. I can't wait to do another show with JC running the sound and lights.
