Long Strange Trip at Film on the Rocks

This year, CEAVCO Audio Visual is once again a sponsor of Film on the Rocks at Colorado’s historic Red Rocks Amphitheater. The Denver Film Society is a valued partner of CEAVCO’s, and Red Rocks is one of the ultimate Colorado experiences.

The 18th season of Film on the Rocks includes nine events throughout the summer. Each film is preceded by a live concert and local comedian. The CEAVCO team is especially looking forward to the May 25th showing of the long-awaited Grateful Dead documentary Long Strange Trip.

Jared Richardson – The CEAVCO Chef

Jared Richardson is the warehouse manager at CEAVCO Audio Visual. It’s his job to oversee all outgoing and incoming gear and the team who take care of that gear every day.

Jared and his team take great pride in making sure that CEAVCO’s clients get exactly what they need so each show runs like clockwork. The way he puts it, he’s like a chef. He makes the meal exactly the way the client likes. Extra onions, no asparagus? Coming right up.

CEAVCO’s clients want to entertain, engage, or educate their audience, and Jared’s biggest source of satisfaction is knowing that his team has given them the support they need.
