About Duvateen Sound


Duvateen Sound is an audio services and equipment rentals studio that serves the greater San Francisco Bay Area, Lake County and Mendocino County. People from all over the region have rented our wide range of first-class sound and stage equipment or hired our experienced, on-location audio engineers for events such as conventions, festivals, concerts.


Started as a recording studio in 2003, Duvateen Sound has continued to provide songwriters, instrumentalists, bands and marketing talent a relaxing environment to record albums, songs, jingles or podcasts, in addition to providing the general public with equipment rentals and event audio services.

Our Crew


Rob Bayne is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist originally from Virginia, but currently living in Oakland, CA.  His playing and original music comprise an eclectic blend of folk, blues, country, swing, R&B and rock.


With extensive experience in the studio, both singing and playing various instruments including drums, bass and several styles of both electric and acoustic guitar, Rob helps up and coming artists develop and hone both their production soundscape and their song-writing and performance skills.


Gavin Jones founded Duvateen Sound in 2003. As a working musician himself, he saw a growing need to help bridge the gap between musicians and pristine stage sound. As his recording business and experience in event audio services grew, the company evolved into a full-service audio production company that serves events ranging from San Francisco concert halls, Silicon Valley tech conferences, East Bay clubs and North Bay weddings.


Jay Willis is a singer/songwriter, producer and frontman for the band Dead Lxve. Originally from Santa Rosa, CA but currently living in Lakeport, CA. His production style ranges anywhere from trap rap to hard hitting rock/metal.


With years of experience both behind the boards in the studio and inside the recording booth, Jay has ventured off to create a fun and trustworthy experience while working with not just experienced recording artists, but also new-to-the-scene singers, rappers and songwriters.

As of 2022, Jay has graduated from NYU with credentials in Music Management and has since began the process of planning classes for students to join in on learning the process of creating a brand for newer singers and songwriters.
