Welcome to The Sound Shop. I’m Patty Jakos, President of the The Sound Shop. I took over ownership from Larry Powers in May of 2012, and although he will no longer be responsible for daily operations, he will continue as my trusted advisor and consultant. I’ve worked for Larry forever, and that’s a really long time! I’m a home improvement addict, so I love the design aspect that has worked its way into audio and video over the last few years. Manufacturers have finally realized that style and substance can co-exist! I’m also a fan of universal remote controls that “ keep it simple” and really big TV’s for watching sports & movies!
I got started in the audio business in the mid 1980’s installing car stereos while studying electronics. After finishing school, I worked as a research tech for a while before joining the military, where I served in Germany, Korea and the Philippines. After leaving the army, I was lucky enough to return to the audio industry.
The best part of my job is being able to design systems using the latest technology, like keypad systems and music servers, and still keep it user-friendly. No two customers are alike, and since this industry is constantly changing, it’s always interesting. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
I’m Kelly Miles, and I have been in the music business since my family opened their first piano & organ store in Oklahoma, back in 1967. I moved to Colorado Springs with my wife for her job as a high school administrator and coach. I’m coming up on my 20th year with the Sound Shop. It’s been fun seeing the changes in our industry over the years.
I enjoy 2 channel stereo, but also enjoy home theater with my wife, daughter, and our Lab. I have always said that being at the Sound Shop is not really a job, but a hobby. Give me a call to come to your home for a free consultation on all of your audio and home theater needs.
I’m Scott Alamo. I was born in Colorado and have been here the majority of my life. I have been doing business with The Sound Shop for over 15 years. First I was a customer, and then became an employee.
My first love is my family, my second is music. There are a lot of different styles of music, but the one I prefer is metal. Yeah, like that’s music… but I LOVE IT! I like listening to vinyl, and also multi channel music.
My third love is sports, my favorite being football. Go Irish, Go Raiders!!! There is nothing like watching football in High Definition. Stop in and we can talk sports or music!
Control 4 Programmer
I’m David Tigue. My family and I have just recently moved to Colorado Springs from Alabama. I have been a musician (drummer) and a computer geek for as long as I can remember. I first started working with computers and networks in 1996 when I was 16 years old. I am a Control4 technician which allows me to combine my love for music, and computers into one category: home automation. I started working with Control4 home automation programming about 3 years ago in Alabama. Being able to use my knowledge to make a customer’s life better and the technology in their house less complicated to use is what keeps me going. My hobbies include computer programming, playing the drums, and listening to classic rock and jam bands.
RetiredCongratulations to Bob, who has retired after 40 years in the business, 17 of those right here at the Sound Shop. Bob’s expertise has made him a valued member of the team, and we will miss having him around. As many of you know, Bob has been an avid photographer in recent years and plans to spend his time on more shooting adventures. Bob’s client projects are being taken up by Scott Alamo, who promises to provide the same care and knowledge you’ve grown accustomed to.
