Sound Reinforcement, Lighting and Backline Testimonial:
"It is a pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Craig and Leah LiaBraaten of Living Water Music, Inc. ~ Sound & Lighting Division.
Our company recently hired Living Water Music to provide the backline, lighting, and sound reinforcement for the entertainment we hired to perform at a corporate dinner. Craig & Leah were the project coordinators and audio and lighting engineers and managed every detail flawlessly. They completely handled the project, coordinating details between our company, the band we hired (Gary Lewis & the Playboys) and the owner of the building where the show was held. They made numerous phone calls, sent emails and traveled quite a distance to get the precise bacline this band required.
The venue was a very difficult one, and Living Water Music showed outstanding flexibility and creativity to make the event a success, even providing sound proof backdrops and a generator to make sure there were no "surprises" that evening. They made sure all the bases were covered and all parties' needs were being met. Because the venue was not ideal for a band, they had to provide custom sound reinforcement including six separate monitor mixes.
Living Water Music is a first-rate, professional organization that I would recommend for any sound and lighting event you may have. They were absolutely instrumental in making our event a success, and I would hire them again without reservation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Sincerely, Jill Carruth, Office Manager, Dom-Ex, Inc." (February 20, 2006)
Sound Reinforcement Testimonial:
"I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to you and your Living Water Music staff for providing the sound reinforcement equipment and musical entertainment during the 2006 Minnesota Twins Caravan visit to Hibbing on January 14, 2006 hosted by our company.
Once again this year, as in the past several years, you graciously and very satisfactorily accommodated our sound equipment needs with your professional quality equipment.
You can be assured that we will not hesitate to utilize your wervices for sound reinforcement purposes for similar events in the future.
Sincerely, Robert J. Muhich, Assistant General Manager, Range Broadband" (February 10, 2006)
Sound Reinforcement Testimonial:
"I am writing a letter of recommendation for Craig LiaBraaten and Living Water Music.
I have had several opportunities with several charitable events in this community to work with Living Water Music. The working relationship we had was outstanding. Craig was in charge of the total sound system which was in an outdoor park setting. In addition to the sound for the total program they also provided some of the music for the program. Again, the quality and professionalism was of the highest caliber. As always with programs and events, there were may distractions and interruptions to the plans and Craig was extremely flexible and adaptable. He seemed to perform very well under pressure which is not an easy thing to do.
Craig seems to have a high degree of technical knowledge and his expertise was extremely valuable in these outdoor events. He appears to have the highest euality instrumentation and equipment and knows how to use them. Because of his professionalism much of the stress and strain of the events we were involved in were diminished by Craig's professionalism.
I believe there are also factors of importance in his background beyond technical knowledge and high quality instrumentation. Some of these intangibles would be his sincere caring about people and helping them to the best of his ability. He does care about people and his actions and behavior testify to that fact. I would have absolutely no hesitation calling Craig for his service on our next event. If I can be of service to anyone, please feel free to call me and I can share additional insights that I have surrounding a working relationship with Living Water Music.
Sincerely, Donald B. Maki, Financial Advisor, Ameriprise Financial" (February 17, 2006)
Sound Reinforcement and Lighting Testimonial:
"I have been asked to write a letter of recommendation / testimonial for Living Water Music, Inc. / Craig & Leah LiaBraaten regarding my experience working with them as Sound Reinforcement Contractors. I am honored and delighted to do so.
I have known the LiaBraatens and worked with them professionally for over seven years now. Each of these past seven years, Living Water Music has provided state-of-the-art sound reinforcement and lighting for our annual summer Jubilee celebration and many other professional events in Hibbing, MN. They have assisted our Chamber on numerous occasions with sound reinforcement for Business After Hours events, for special speakers we bring in, and in providing musical entertainment and sound equipment for our annual fundraising dinners and Christmas parties.
Whether attendance for our event is 100 or 20,000 we have been consistently pleased with the professional quality of the equipment, expertise and customer service we have received from Living Water Music, Inc. I have been impressed with their professionalism, and with the tremendous quality of their huge, outdoor sound systems. The sound quality is fantastic, and it can heard more than a mile away.
The LiaBraatens are good people to work with, very hard working and knowledgeable individuals you can count on. We highly recommend Living Water Music, Inc. / Craig & Leah LiaBraaten for any Sound Reinforcement Contractor positions / needs without any reservation.
Sincerely, Lory Fedo, President, CEO, Hibbing Area Chamber of Commerce" (January 7, 2006)

"To Whom It May Concern: We hired Living Water Music, Inc. to provide sound reinforcement services for our summer music festival which included the following groups: Caleigh, Trampled by Turtles, Conga Se Menne, and Paul Thorn.
There are many facets to address in this recommendation as this was an event with many changing parameters as the show date approached. In short, Living Water Music provided a "turn key" level of services.

Sound Reinforcement And Lighting Testimonial:
"Friends: It is my pleasure to describe to you the professional artistic relationship that our organization and community has had with Craig LiaBraaten and Living Water Music (LWM), Inc. over many years. The Edge of the Wilderness Community Center, a 501.c.3, corporation in Minnesota, has built a $2.2 million dollar art center, and Living Water Music, Inc. was of great support to us by producing and performing benefit concerts and by consulting with us on sound and lighting engineering and design.
For the benefit concerts Craig and LWM donated performance fees, as well as the transportation and use of all the sound equipment and lighting needed to produce these events in the commons area, where no sound or lighting exists.
During the design development of the Center for the Arts, LWM provided professional services as an Audio Engineer / Consultant, a Lighting Engineer / Consultant, and a Project Research Specialist free of charge.
At the Ground Breaking Ceremony, the LiaBraatens were recognized for their considerable help, especially the benefit concerts and the consultations. Craig spent a great deal of time, effort, and money to bring us specifications for several options for lighting and sound equipment that would suit our building and our finances. His research for our project was extensive and greatly appreciated.
Our organization and our community are very grateful to Craig and Leah LiaBraaten and Living Water Music, Inc. for directing their considerable knowledge and expertise so generously to the Center for the Arts, and being dedicated to it for so many years.
If there is anything else I can help you to understand about this company or its generous owners, do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours, Patricia L. Feld, B.A, M.A, M.F.A, B.S, President EOWCC Board of Directors" (November 29, 2005)
