Audio Visual Installations

City Entertainment Systems and our NYC division Brooklyn Audio & Visual Systems have been installing high quality systems since the early 70’s. Our first visit is free of charge.

Houses of Worship & Schools

We have found that many churches or synagogues are sold “music store” equipment that is not designed to serve the special needs of a house
of worship or church services.

CUSTOM Lighting Design

City Entertainment Systems can provide you with a free estimate on installation of a new customized stage lighting system or renovation of an existing one.

Equipment Sales & Rentals

We sell, use and install only the highest quality brands of professional audio and lighting equipment available – and at reasonable prices to fit almost any budget!

LIVE MUSIC & CORPORATE Events

From Black Tie fund raisers, to trade shows and conventions, we have the right equipment and trained, experienced personnel for any special event.
