Eric Nam There And Back Again Tour
- PCE kicked off the year by providing lighting for K-Pop star Eric Nam's North American tour. Eric Nam performances feature precise dance choreography. That means the lighting design has to be incredibly nimble to keep up!

Rockharbor Church Easter Services
- This Easter, many of our church clients conducted special worship services, using PCE staging, rigging, audio, video walls, lighting, and backline to accommodate bigger crowds and create a more powerful experience. Some, like Rockharbor Church (above), even rented out special venues to make the proceedings even more impactful.

Brian Cox Horizons Tour
- For the North American leg of his Horizons world tour, celebrity physicist Brian Cox enlisted PCE to provide the video wall, lighting, and audio crucial to the show. One of the major thrills on the tour was playing the world famous Beacon Theatre on Broadway in New York City. The video above provides a glimpse of the show, as well as an interview with executive producer Arnold Engelman.

- Perhaps our biggest event of the year, the annual CHOC Gala doubles as one of the biggest private fundraisers anywhere in the world. PCE provided staging, rigging, lighting, audio, video, power, and more for the dinner, charity auction, and night-capping Lionel Richie concert.

CSUF Spring Concert
- On the same evening as the CHOC Gala, PCE put on another major show: California State University Fullerton's Spring Concert, featuring performances by musicians Miguel and MAX. This festival-like event featured a PCE stage, rigging, audio, lighting, and a totally hyped college crowd.

- PCE provides production gear and services for dozens of commencement ceremonies every year. Our contributions at each of these range from some simple audio to full-scale productions with stages, audio, and video walls. The above video features a supercut of PCE graduations from 2022. Check it our for a full picture of our graduation services.

State and County Fairs
- After acquiring Speeda Sound early on in 2022, the PCE team started tackling more fairs and festivals all over California. At many of these fairs, we provided staging, rigging, audio, lighting, and video—often for numerous stages simultaneously!

Rodeo Drive Corporate Event
- In September, PCE shut down Rodeo Drive for a corporate event, transforming the famous street (in just an hour and a half!) with lighting and audio for a private party. We always get a kick out of working at a landmark location like this one.

Night at the Fights
- The black tie NAIOP Night at the Fights event had a little bit of everything: drinks, dinner, dancing, and, of course, the titular boxing match. PCE provided lighting, audio, video, rigging, and more for this dazzling event.

Winterfest OC
- This year, the drive-through event previously known as Night of Lights OC (featured in the video above) will expand into an all-out, family-friendly holiday extravaganza called Winter Fest OC. Winter Fest OC will feature holiday decor, over a million lights, ice tubing, carnival attractions, and a ton of production by PCE. For more info on the event (and for tickets), visit the official Winter Fest OC website.
