A-Town AV History

Matt Gaughan started in the Audio Video Industry as Stage Designer and Technical Director for a touring performing arts multimedia show that was, at the time, using cutting edge technology. At nearly every tour stop, the event hosts would ask him about the products and technology he was using because they had an interest in acquiring similar equipment. In 1996, Matt founded Gaughan’s Computer and Stage Equipment and began consulting with clients on how to further their audio, video, and lighting presentations. As time progressed, he recognized that his clients not only needed consulting, but they also needed installation services as well. After relocating back to his hometown of Atascadero, California, he began operating under the name A-Town AV. He then expanded the services of the company to include full system design and installation. In 2014, the company transferred to Jason Allen. Since then, Jason has grown the business with the goal to provide customers quality solutions and service.

Today, A-Town AV services clients along California’s central coast, Los Angeles/Anaheim area, Sacramento area, and even as far as Texas. Locally, our clients include: Cal Poly University, The City of Arroyo Grande, The City of Paso Robles, The City of Morro Bay, Grace Bible Church of Arroyo Grande, Lucia Mar Unified School District, Atascadero High School, Fort Hunter Liggett, Paso Youth Arts, and many others. As with any technology based industry, products and methodologies change constantly. A-Town AV continues to maintain its position on the cutting edge of this technology curve. We are committed not only to continued education, but to being on the forefront of new methods, technologies and products. We continually challenge the “norm” in order to keep ahead of the game and are proactive in developing new, more efficient and more cost effective audio, video, lighting and control systems.

What others say about A-Town AV

Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing... you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world.

Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.
