About Us

SDE Lighting was created as the Sound Defying Entertainment lighting brand in 2009, but we’ve been lighting up events since Sound Defying Entertainment started in 2001. We started because we saw an increase demand from clients looking for only uplighting, due to their DJ or Band not providing it. We decided a new division was needed to market and highlight our services for event lighting.

Since then, we were quickly recognized as experts in the industry, by implementing new and unique techniques to install temporary lighting for events, small to large, across the NY Tri-State area.

Out lighting services has been featured on 4 episodes on Season 1 of Dina’s Party (Dina Manzo from Real Housewives of NJ) which aired on HGTV in 2012 as well as a 2014 Episode of Four Weddings on TLC.

We’ve worked on many corporate events from companies such as Bayer, Celgene, and RB to events with public figures and celebrities in attendance, such as NY Giants players, Cory Booker, Tamara Tunie (Law & Order:SVU), Grammy winner Chrisette Michele, Grammy Nominee Luke James.
