ARMADILLO SOUND AND DESIGN was established in 1980 by Doug Lohman to provide quality production (sound & lights) for acoustic music events across the Upper Midwest.  

All Armadillo technicians are committed to delivering sound that is as natural as possible, allowing the audience to fully appreciate performers' vocal and instrumental skills. This love for the music and attention to detail are what sets Armadillo apart.

Doug also brings many years' experience as a musician. Having performed many different styles of music - hootenanny, acoustic rock, country rock, blues, bluegrass, folk, swing and Cajun - Doug brings to your event a love of music of all genres and has the ear to make musicians sound their best.

Don’t let Armadillo’s specialization in acoustic music mislead you; we can provide great sound and lights for your event no matter what style of music or entertainment you are presenting.

From a small concert for 50 people to a large multi-day event with multiple stages, Armadillo can fulfill all of your sound reinforcement and lighting needs.
