What Is The Party Machine?

The Party Machine has performed for thousands of events throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region since 1984. The original concept was to bring concert quality sound and lighting systems to the mobile DJ market. At the time it was something that had never been done before. After 20 years in the industry, Gary Gauldin turned over the company to Russ Brown in order to expand his video production company.

Russ took the opportunity to own an established brand and ran with it. He wanted to see The Party Machine continue to grow and evolve with ever changing technology in the audio visual industry. Today The Party Machine offers its clients a one stop shop for mobile DJ entertainment, as well as event production services. After years of inventory expansion Russ decided to start Commonwealth Audio Visual which is a full service production company based in Richmond, Virginia. This unique relationship allows us to offer our clients the most talented entertainers, experienced event staff, and top of the line equipment catered to each clients specific needs.
