Paul Hackbarth started Sound By Design in 1996 doing middle school dances. Over the years, Paul and his team have worked hard to grow Sound By Design into company you see today. Our capabilities allow us to now execute over 750 events a year.

In 2012 Paul and his wife opened up Camp Bar. The bar quickly became a neighborhood favorite later resulting in two more locations. It was only a matter of time before Paul combined his experience in the entertainment and bar industry to open up two event spaces - The Atrium and Birch. All together the brands form the Hackbarth Hospitality Group.
