Who we are ?

Al's Audio was founded in 1999 by Al Arbez, starting the business out of his garage in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Having decades of experience in the professional audio industry, it wasn't long before his company outgrew his home. Al's Audio continued to grow, and so did the need to hire experienced, knowledgeable people. In 2002, Dave Thome became a member of the Al's Audio team. Soon after, Troy Johnson joined the company as well. In August 2012, Dave and Troy were pleased to welcome Garret Johnson to Al's Audio.

After more than 10 years in business in Medicine Hat, the company remains committed to Al's philosophy of providing professional audio services by knowledgeable personel to Medicine Hat and surrounding area.

I just wanted to say thank you for a great job. We had a lot of compliments on the DJ's and you kept the dance floor going. So again thanks for doing a good job and everything ran smoothly and no complications. Music volume was at perfect level, and a good mix of music that catered to all. So thanks!

Thank you so very much for the amazing sound, and lights, and everything that made this year's Tongue on the Post Festival such a great success! Thank you for your continuing support of the Folk Music Club. We really appreciate all you do.

Thanks again! Lots of great compliments on the sound quality! Lounge Pistol was very pleased as well! I even got a call from their manager to thank us for a great venue. You definitely have a lot to do with that compliment! Cheers!

Would you please pass on my thanks to Jack, Garret and Dave for their calming presence during my technology glitching freak-out! As usual the Al’s Audio team goes above and beyond to make this event go off without a hitch. I look forward to future collaborations.

Barbara Mitchell, Medicine Hat College

Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with the install. Your guys did an outstanding job and were great to work with. They represent your company very well. We did have a bit of a glitch, but they came up with a creative solution – probably better than otherwise.

Fred Monk, St. Michael's Church

I want to send a huge thanks to you, your team, and especially Garret. It was so nice to deal with a team of people I knew I could fully trust with our event. Garret was so helpful and was great working with our Executive and speakers. I just wanted to pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation.

Just a quick note of thanks to you guys for the supply of the PA at Cravestock this weekend. It was great working with Jack. It's always easier when you have a good system tech assisting with set-up, mixing, etc. Makes our job easy!!!
