"Professionalism and a very high level of knowledge are critical to everything we’re involved in and Tony has them in abundance.  Moreover, he arrives with a “can do” attitude and positive spirit that keeps everyone around him fresh and excited about the work at hand.  And finally, he has a fantastic ear for sound and ability to get the best out of the environment it’s being performed in.  Give yourself an opportunity to hear him work….you’ll be impressed!"​
Dan Hays - Executive Director, Franklin Theatre

"After having worked closely with Tony for several years, what impresses me most is his passion for everything he does. When you combine his vast knowledge of audio with his work ethic, you have something rare and formidable. I've greatly benefitted from my association with Tony."

"One of my favorite venues to see a live concert is the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, TN. What an audio treat it was to hear Exile perform there last year! Not only is the venue fabulous...and not only is Exile singing as great as ever...but the sound was ideal throughout the evening! Tony Cottrill is the sound master! The mix was perfect, and the volume was ideal! I know when Tony is behind the board, I will be hearing a wonderfully mixed show by a talented, experienced sound engineer --Tony Cottrill!"
Lisa Harless - Senior Vice President, Regions Bank Music Row

"We were privileged to have Tony Cottrill at our church and had a great experience! He not only helped give our sound guys a better foundation and understanding of their role in the service, he also helped diagnose and solve some system issues we had been dealing with for some time. In the weeks since our time with Tony, our sound has continued to improve and our volunteers have been energized and encouraged to continue learning on their own."

"Tony Cottrill is the consummate professional. A rare blend of old school, and new school. Whenever I need 1st class live production, I totally trust Tony."
