Bay Stage Live acquires AVSS

Bay Stage Live, a live-event production and audio/visual company, has acquired AVSS (Audio Visual Support Services), both based in Tampa.

The acquisition comes as new owners Danielle Justo Sherwin and Nicole Justo Idziak purchased the family-owned business from their parents, Brian and Yvonne Justo, in 2022, making them the third-generation owners since the company’s inception in 1957, according to a statement.

“We are all excited about our partnership with AVSS. We’ve worked with them for many years and look forward to continuing to provide top-of-the-line service to all our customers. The possibilities are unlimited,” said Danielle Justo Sherwin, in the statement.

Bay Stage Live provides services including production, rentals, equipment sales, design, supplies and repair in addition to audio and visual rentals, sales and custom services including 3D visualization software and advancing technologies.

“It’s truly been a privilege to partner with Bay Stage Live all these years collectively serving the families, businesses and communities of Tampa for over 30 years. I know the Bay Stage Live team well, and the customers we work with can expect the same dedication to this industry that they’ve known with us. I’m excited to see what Nicole and Danielle do,” said Bob Clements, previous owner of AVSS, and current director of audio-visual services.

Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
