Hi I'm Kevin Koike, owner of Koike AV. First of all, welcome to my website! I hope you'll find it to be helpful and informative. But before you go any further, please allow me to introduce myself.
I was born on Groundhog's Day, February 2, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii. My father was a USDA Sugarcane scientist, whose job moved our family from Hawaii to Puerto Rico, and finally to settle here in southeast Louisiana in the summer of 1969.
At the age of 4, I taught myself to play the ukelele. In the years to come, my interest in rock and blues music turned my attention to the drums and eventually the six string guitar. In 1972, my older brother handed down to me, his now vintage 1971 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. His generous action eventually led me to an interesting career in performing and recording that would span over the following 35 years. Through those years, I was fortunate enough to see much of this beautiful country, perform on many coveted stages (and dives!), appear in a movie, and record and release 2 critically acclaimed albums.
The reason I'm sharing all of this with you is because through my years of playing and recording, I managed to develop a very keen and critical ear for sonic detail. Today, I'm able to apply this ability to the design of the audio/video systems you'll see showcased on this website.
Established in 1993 under the name Audio Visions, we continue to offer custom, top quality residential and commercial audio/video systems and installations. Our goal never was to compete with the "big box" stores, which concentrate on numbers and quotas, but to offer our clients superior products, personalized service and unmatched customer support. I will never understand how a salesperson can advise a customer on what's right for his home without ever stepping foot inside of it! Here at Koike AV, we believe in meeting with you in your environment first, studying structure, room size and ambiance before ever discussing equipment and numbers.
So whether you're considering a home theater, multi-room sound or upgrading an existing system, we'd like to help!
