Turning a Vision into Reality

After spending a dozen years in the corporate community, it was time for Sally to venture out into her own company and 

Rider Productions was formed.

 Now delivering over 25 years of logistics and travel experience to her clients, friends and family, she is passionate about the newest ship, the redesigned ballroom, the resort of choice, or destination for you, your group, your company or your organization.

Bringing ideas to fruition in a memorable way!

A Perfectionist on Every Detail 

John's roots are grounded in the band Max Creek that he formed with his compatriots at Hartt College of Music 46 years ago. The band continues to entertain music enthusiasts today. His audio/visual, lighting & set design, and creative video skills have encompassed the hundreds of events the company has supported.  His unique perspective, audio precision and inspired outlook on what performances are and should be are invaluable.

Let his vision become yours.
