In 2017 siblings David Tarvin and Kate Tarvin-Winsor realized a life-long dream and combined their expertise in their individual fields into a new company, Cadence Studios.
Cadence Studios is your event production partner for all things live. From corporate events and benefits, to concerts of all shapes and size we make sure to set you up with the best audio, visual and lighting for a memorable event. We will help you imagine the possibility and push the limits of what our technology can do. We will help you design to ultimate audience experience.
And because we’re a locally-owned and operated by a private company, we have the ability to make anything happen – big or small.
Our Vision & Mission
Cadence Studios will produce memorable experiences for our clients through unmatched service, value, and integrity.
In June 2010, DB Music opened its doors. Situated on the corner of Rusk and Lamar, just off downtown Sherman, our retail footprint focused on selling high quality music gear and offering great customer service. We sold everything a guitarist could need- straps, strings, picks, and beyond!
Over time we evolved to offer consignments on music instruments and electronic repairs. We partnered with other local businesses to be able to offer other types of instrument repairs and lessons referrals. We definitely miss the day-to-day interactions with our customers, and being on a first-name basis with the UPS driver. But the demand for our event production services grew to the point where it was becoming more and more obvious the direction the business needed to go in.
So after 7 years of being in the retail business, we closed the doors to our music store on July 1, 2017. It was scary and a little bittersweet, but we remember our time in those four walls fondly. We had many family gatherings there, including Thanksgiving dinner one year!
Cadence Studios' Leadership
David began working in the music industry before he even left high school, playing in bands and then eventually learning to run the sound for those bands. This experience led him to start his own company. It was through running this business that David really focused on his passion and niche within the music industry and starting Cadence Studios. David and his company are a well-known presence, providing the audio/visual support for major community events.
David and his wife Whitney have two children, Raylee and Andrew.

We truly are a family owned and run business. You may see some of our other members of our family helping out at events, hauling equipment or running around watching the kids. We think these pictures make us look like we run a funeral home. What do you think?
We Give Back
Cadence Studios is dedicated to supporting organizations committed to making a positive impact in our greater community. Since our doors opened in 2009, we have made giving back a core part of who we are. It is our pleasure to work with non-profit organizations to help them continue to serve.
