General Manager

John moved to Wilmington from Cleveland a decade ago and considers it one of his best decisions yet. He loves being serenaded by Motown, classic rock, and classical music—BB King, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Escala, Jennifer Thomas. John loves the violin for its powerful and sultry sound. When he isn't providing our clients with a world-class viewing and listening experience, you can find John catching the sunrise, cooking, visiting museums, or volunteering around the community.



Originally from California, Pat has been a Wilmington local for 23 years. He hears the beauty in every genre of music and especially enjoys the musical stylings of Eric Wooten and Carlos Santana. As a bass player, Pat's passion for music goes beyond just listening. He used to play professionally and now plays in a band here in Wilmington (check out Billy Electritx!). His favorite part of working at The Audio Lab is being able to put his creativity and imagination to use. When not working, Pat is almost always doing something with music or taking on new house projects.



A 13-year Marine Corps veteran with Native American roots, Smokey moved from a small town in Oklahoma to Wilmington 10 years ago. He listens to a wide range of music, and some of his favorite concerts include Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, and Chevelle. If he could travel anywhere, it would be a quiet, tropical island. Working at The Audio Lab allows him to share his passion with others and gives him great fulfillment. Outside of music, Smokey enjoys spending time with his son/daughter, PC gaming, and motorcycles.
