Tony Braccio - President
Tony Braccio is the President of Crystal Sound, and has been involved in the disc jockey and night club industry for more than 25 years. In 1979 he and his partner had a vision to become Winnipeg's premier music service company.
Over the years, the company grew with several music company acquisitions. These acquisitions included Superior Sound, Play-All Music Services and several smaller companies. In 1990, Crystal Sound combined forces with Partie Sound. The acquisitions brought over many talented employees and added a new dimension in the operations. Through Tony's vision and direction, these individuals have become an integral part of the company. Although Tony oversees the company, the day-to-day in-house operations are left to the office team. His main focus is on the hotel, bar and night club industry. He has been able to put together a strong technical support team that is driven by Tony's vision of being Winnipeg's initiator, and not an imitator.
As a husband and father of two boys who are heavily involved in hockey, Tony believes that hard work and a dedication to your passion leads to the success of individuals, as well as companies.

Ron Baron - Operations Manager
As Crystal Sound's General Manager, Ron Baron brings more than 30 years of experience in the recorded music and disc jockey industries to the company, and in that time he has been involved in or managed almost every major area of our business.
Ron got his start in 1972 as a part-time, self-taught mobile DJ. His small operation was called Buzz's Music Service, and within 8 years he had 6-8 part-time employees. In 1980 Ron expanded his business, purchasing a company named Pro Sound, and under Ron's guidance Pro Sound became a major player in the field over the next several years. Then, in 1985, Ron merged Pro Sound with Partie Sound, part of a series of mergers and acquisitions that would lead, in 1989, to the acquisition of Crystal Sound.
After that major development, Ron played an integral role in the company's business development, policy issues, strategic planning and opportunities. Presently, Ron oversees corporate finance, financial accounting and reporting, human resources and business decisions support.
