You may have heard the phrase “you get what you pay for”. Hysteria Sound takes pride in providing excellent service, using the highest quality equipment, for a reasonable cost. We began 30 years ago with one mobile unit and have expanded to become one of the largest DJ companies in the state of Missouri. We provide sound reinforcement for area bands, corporate events, and individual events such as parties, weddings and school dances. With nearly $400,000.00 in sound equipment we are here to stay, not a fly-by-night company. Regarding our service, we can honestly say that you get MORE than what you pay for!

Because we pride ourselves on our customer service, we welcome any requests for referrals of our previous clients. We have been members of the Sullivan Chamber of Commerce for 30 years and have been called upon by the Chamber, the Meramec Community fair, the Crawford County Fair and numerous other organizations, as well as individuals, to provide our service. Our seasoned disc jockeys do everything they can to make each event a success. Most years our company has provided sound for more than 270 event’s each year and thirty years of service with performances to over 1,000,000 people have put our company on the map.

All of the equipment that is used is of the highest quality on the market: EV, JBL, Mackie, QSC, Yamaha, American DJ, Chavet, and Shure, just to name a few. All of the music provided remains the same for all of our packages. The over 100,000 songs on demand, and access to numerous streaming services, our collection covers from the Big Band Era to Country to today’s Top Hits. We also subscribe to a professional Disc Jockey service, Promo Only, and each month receive the newest hits that you are hearing on your favorite radio station.
