How It All Began

Lee Volkov was a student at a Revere High School when the opportunity came to take over the school's internal radio station (WRHS) due the graduation of the station's primary DJ. As soon as football season started, Lee was asked by the Revere Football Boosters to disc jockey a dance after a football game as a fundraiser for the club. Having no equipment of his own at the time, Lee borrowed anything he could from the bandroom and auditorium. This first event (see picture below) took place in the fall of 1988.

In the coming months, Revere Middle School needed a disc jockey for their dance, and then word spread out to other schools about the student from Revere who had his own DJ business. By the time Lee graduated in 1990, he had performed for many events and was branching out into weddings, parties, festivals, and sound systems. What started out as a one time dance to help out the football boosters, turned into a business that has performed at hundreds of special events all over Ohio and beyond.

LV Sound "Fun Facts"

The first LV Sound event was in 1988. It was a dance for Revere High School in Richfield.

(photos from these early years can be found in the LV Sound History section of the online Media Gallery)

LV Sound was the first Akron, Ohio based DJ to utilize giant screen music video systems starting in 1992.

LV Sound did not start using CD's until 1994. The first music library consisted of albums and 45's. The first music videos were not made available on DVD until 1999. From 1992-1999 all music videos were on videotape. The first DVD player purchased for LV Sound was at a cost of over $500.00.

LV Sound's first PA system was rated at 50 watts. We now run systems anywhere from 14000-5000 watts based on the venue size.

DJ Lee first met his wife, Kim, in 1990 when he was the house DJ for Photon, a teen club in Copley.

The first laptop computer ever owned by LV Sound was purchased in 1992 at a cost of over $2500.00

The first DJ vehicle was a Chevy Chevette, a very small compact car of it's time. Today, the wheels of LV Sound consist of a household moving van with a 14 foot cargo box and ramp.

In 2007, Lee and Kim traveled to Clear Lake, Iowa to perform at a wedding on the stage of the world famous Surf Ballroom.

The Surf has played host to some of the biggest names in music through the years. It was also the location of the last concert of Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, and Buddy Holly on February 2, 1959. They all died later that night in a plane crash that changed music history and provided the inspiration for the Don McLean's hit song "American Pie."

3 generations of Volkov family have now worked for LV Sound. In 1988, the business was started by Lee Volkov and his father Leonid (1941-2003), Lee's son Adam is now helping out and performed his first solo DJ event in 2015.
