Sound Entertainment

There are times when second best is just not good enough.

About Us

Sound Entertainment was established in 1990 when founder, Chris Martin, established the Noughts and Crosses Underage Night Spot in Dunedin.  This project won national and international awards for its youth development achievements.  Chris managed the project and DJed at the venue.  He soon became in demand to DJ school dances and private functions.  Chris decided if he was going to establish a mobile disco it would have to be the best.  CoMotion mobile disco was born.  CoMotion's point of difference is its full money back guarantee that it is the best mobile disco. Demand for CoMotion mobile disco continued to grow.  

Since its inception Sound Entertainment has aimed to provide the best and most innovation service to clients as well as support community and youth development projects.  Sound Entertainment today includes sound and lighting equipment available for hire with and without operators, event resources including a covered stage, portable radio station, battery powered sound systems, R.T.s (radio telephones)...
