About Us

Seriously Good Audio Since 2003

GAP_8917R_webYou want proof? We Got Proof. A Grammy, for work we did with the late, great George Carlin. An Emmy for our work with HBO. And so many Addys, Gladdys and Gee-That’s-Not-Baddys that we’ve resorted to using them as doorstops, paperweights and blunt instruments of personal defense. Take one from the box on your way out. Kids love ‘em.

James Von Boldt

Mixer – Composer – Sound Designer

JamesMusician and sound designer James Von Boldt has a close relationship with all things audio. He’s proficient at almost any instrument including some you’ve never heard of. And his synthesizer, beat programming and production skills are world class. His breadth of knowledge applies to any genre and covers acoustic, analog, and synthetic.

James has composed custom tracks for The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, Pandora Radio, Kia, and Intel among others and has written and recorded a variety of parodies mimicking popular music.

But all work and no play makes James a dull boy. Outside of Dog and Pony, James has won the award for Best Las Vegas Break-Beat DJ, and placed in the Iron Chef DJ competition. He was also recently awarded Best Sound Design for his experimental work on the play Bug which was performed at Cockroach Theater in Las Vegas.

Chong Kim

Zookeeper

ChongChong originally hails from Indianapolis, but she’s been a Vegas native since 2003. Prior to moving here, she studied the art of filmmaking in Orlando. Shortly after finishing school, she was driven out of the state of Florida by an overpopulation of ridiculously sized mosquitoes, amphibians and spiders. Her life in the desert began with working in the hospitality industry until she was hired to do work in video production for MGM Resorts. After half a decade at MGM, she jumped into the real estate industry just to see “what it was like”. It wasn’t until later that she discovered her true calling was to work with a bunch of wildly creative whackos at a place called Dog and Pony, where she’s known as the Zookeeper.
