About US

Building the future

Since 1963, DK Audio Video has specialized in installing, maintaining, and repairing audio, video, and lighting. We have seen the industry change drastically and we make it a priority to consistently create strategic partnerships that enable us to stay one step ahead.

Our level of expertise has primarily captured the attention of churches. Our team consists of individuals that have an array of experience in critical roles within the church. From worship leader, to pastor, and church sound engineer, our staff knows exactly what is needed to take the worship to a different level. We are highly knowledgeable in Christian Audio and Video, we install several different systems, and run them on a weekly basis.

We are dedicated to ensuring our clients get exactly what they want and need out of their systems. We are flexible and stay within a budget that is comfortable for your congregation. We also offer comprehensive training on the equipment that is purchased to make the system easy to operate.  

If you already have a system, but need an upgrade or a repair, we can help you with that too. Our skilled team members will be able to evaluate your existing system and advise you on the kind of repair or upgrade that may be needed. We will help keep your system looking and sounding its best. Even if you just need a system for a single event, we have rental options. Call us today to learn more.

In addition to our church clientele, we also serve restaurants, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, coffee houses, museums, conference centers, jazz lounges, and more.

We have offices in Colorado Springs and in Kansas, but we serve several other areas including Nebraska, Wyoming, Chicago, Baton Rouge, Las Vegas, San Diego, Florida, and more.

Dan Keller

Founder

My journey to audio and video began when I was a freshman in highschool. I was captivated with the Beatles and garage bands. Up until that point in time, I had a strong background in science. I was known as the science freak and math guy who helped the jocks with their tests. My love for music grew stronger than my love for science and I began teaching guitar lessons at a local store. Parents would come in and ask me advice on which guitar to buy for their children, and that experience brought out my salesman skills.  As I became older, I attended college, worked as a top salesman, and decided to be a guitar player at night. During the 70’s, I took my passion for music seriously and began recording. That journey led to engineering, where I started heavily recording for several bands until 2002. At that point, I integrated all my past experiences and started a business called Heavenly Sounds in Colorado Springs. In 2006, that journey came to an end as the recession hit, and I returned home to Kansas. I worked at the local Ford Dealership and began building DK Audio at night. In 2008, I began working full-time with DK Audio. In 2013, Lucas and I began to assist each other’s businesses, and then decided to merge the two together about 5 years ago.

My father raised me in the ways of an audio engineer since the age of seven. I spent most of my days running cables and working the soundboard with my dad for the bands he played in. From that point on, I began to grow within the industry as a tech, and then ventured off into the musician path. I fell in love with music and sounds in general, so I began to play several instruments such as drums, piano, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, violin, cello, and bass guitar.  In 2011, I decided to step out into the audio arena exclusively. I went through extensive training on digital consoles, and began to notice the difference in the levels of sound quality, which then led to me specializing in high-end systems. I have a passion for putting projects together and seeing them come to fruition the way clients picture them to be. I am currently a Worship Pastor in Canyon City. I have been happily married for 6 years, and we have been blessed with a 1.5 year-old child.
