About the Owner

Kyle Porter

Hi my name is Kyle Porter, owner of Paradise Audio Services.  I am a 1995 graduate of the Recording Arts Program at CSU Chico.  I have been mixing and recording music since 1988.  I currently am head engineer for KZFR and North Valley Productions shows locally.  I provide equipment and engineering for many local shows and festivals in Northern California. Presently I provide equipment and engineering for High Sierra Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, CA Worldfest, Sisters Folk Festival, Wildflower Music Festival, CA Nut Festival and Gold Nugget Days in Paradise, Lost Sierra Hoedown, Plumas Arts Council and many more.


I am the archivist for shows at the Sierra Nevada Big Room, and have worked on their PBS broadcast series "Sierra Center Stage."   I also do audio for another local PBS program "Banana Grape Stomp."


I work as a live FM radio simulcast engineer for KZFR, KVMR, Sierra Nevada Big Room, Grizzly Radio @ High Sierra, Hog Ranch Radio @ Strawberry, as well as other festivals in northern California.  I also participate as a programer on KZFR doing the "Creole Stomp" show on Wednesday nights.


I own an EAW LA Series sound system that can sufficiently cover an audience up to 1500 people.  With two 32 channel digital mixers front of house and monitors I can provide up to 12 separate monitor mixes on stage.  I own a nice variety of microphones and DI boxes along with top quality stands and cables.  Paradise Audio Services has plenty of gear and resources to handle most all event riders and performances.
