What’s Your Story?

Short on People?

No need to hire a full-time employee for this ONE project. Our pool of contractors are happy to jump in and save the day one project at a time! They are used to new clients around every corner. They can adapt quickly to new environments and personalities and they can easily assimilate as one of your own!

No Time to Vet Freelancers?

We’ve done that for you. Every single Tempo team member has been vetted as a top tier event professional having either worked on a show with us or someone we trust. Most importantly, these team members are NICE (and more than likely fun!) They are only as good as their last gig and they keep getting gigs because they are GREAT!

Our Story:

Nancy Spooner
Founder and CEO

Event Producer, Stage and Deck Manager
30+ Years in Production

Tempo. The neighborhood I grew up in, located in the Southern California High Desert: A community rich in collaboration and cooperation. 

Kathy made delicious holiday Knefla (German dumplings). Karen taught us piano. Betty’s teenagers babysat all of us younger kids on the street.  Donna acted as the neighborhood-watch, sharp eyes from the only two-story house on the cul-de-sac. My mom and her green thumb shared the prolific harvest every summer. 

Kick-the-Can was played every summer night under the street lights.

From a young age I learned life is much more joyful and productive when people work together, support one another, and share unique talents and treasures. 

Tempo Live Events, Inc. was born in 2008. The name an obvious choice because the company I founded breathes the same philosophy as my childhood neighborhood. We are a collection of live event freelance professionals supporting production companies and most importantly each other. 

Welcome to the Tempo neighborhood!

We Work with Great Teams
