The Sound In Motion Family

The Sound In Motion Family

by Adrian Cavlan

You know, lots of companies talk about wanting to create a “family atmosphere” at work. Here at Sound In Motion, we dreamt about it from the very day we started this business and are proud to say we are living that very dream today!

With the number of weddings we are lucky enough to provide services for, isn’t it nice to know that a company that is built on family and treats everyone in it like family can be the ones you entrust to treat your family the very same way?

So let’s do a family tree!

It starts with co-founder Adrian’s family. His wife Shawn is one of the friendly voices you might encounter when you call in to plan your event with us. His mother Nancy was our bookkeeper for many years and still handles aspects of our contracting department in her retirement. His daughter Ella is currently an Assistant DJ and Photo Booth Hostess here at SIM and his brother Illya and brother-in-law Brian both spent good time with the company in past years!

Then you have co-founder Raffi’s side, which includes his wife Karen (who took over Nancy’s bookkeeping duties when she retired) and his son Henry who is a whiz with all of our higher-level DMX lighting!

Oh – and it should be noted that both Adrian’s & Raffi’s fathers, with backgrounds in engineering and precision machining, have both contributed unique and innovative technical designs and manufacturing for us over the years.

Then you go to our Operations Manager Andrew, whose father Jim began with us as a DJ many years back and worked here for several years over two stints. And Team Rivas doesn’t stop there because cousin Chris has been a part of SIM as well, lending special support in the Santa Cruz Warriors basketball music arena.

Then you could talk about Nick, who has been a DJ here now since his college days and is still with us when he is not otherwise engaged serving our country in the U.S. National Guard. And we have been luck enough to have his fiance Cassie as another DJ & General Production Assistant too.


That’s why we are proud to say –

Sound In Motion: Our family serving your family, since 1999!
