Barbie Shearer- President Upstage Productions

Barbie Shearer

I am the President of Upstage Productions. I’m doing something I’ve always wanted to do: lighting, staging, and sound. I love going to watch local bands. I purchased Upstage as my way of supporting the local music scene. I’m excited to bring the big stage to Northern California!

Jake Lake
Technical Director

I have been with the company since the beginning! I am a lifetime musician playing for multiple bands, and a DJ for 15 years. I am also the 1st person to fall off of our mobile stage! The 2014 Silver Medal winner at Bill Sobrantes Whiskerino Beard & Moustache Competition!

Sean Willcox
Sales & Client Relations

I have worked in event productions for over a decade. Small gatherings or a huge concert, I’ll be with you every step of the way. In college I majored in architecture/drafting and minored in business management. I’m a photographer, DJ, and have close ties with many local bands. All these assets combined make me a Sean-of-all-trades!

Michael Glenn

Art in any medium, the capacity to create is what has captures my imagination and passion. Professional Arts has been the staple of my existence for 25 years in all forms imaginable. I am very much looking forward to showing you the world through a very different set of eyes.
