Sausalito Art Festival 2008- current


Re: Past Services


Dear Mark,


I wanted to take a moment to write and let you know how much we at the Sausalito Art Festival appreciate and value Praetorian Event Services.


Not only your, but your staffs, attention to detail and ability to maintain a calm demeanor under pressure are assets that are hard to find.


The collaborative nature of your approach, which is never limited only to that which you have been contracted, is a valuable asset to not only your organization but to any with which you work.


I continually receive compliments from board members, volunteers, and our artists about the "expert" level of security and the "kind" and "efficient" way in which issues are addressed.


My deepest gratitude to Praetorian Event Services for ensuring our event is safe, and please know that I would highly recommend your company to any who would inquire.

Harmony Festival Santa Rosa 2007-Close


I am writing regarding Mark Solum and Praetorian Event Services (PES).  They have been the security contractor for the Harmony Festival since 2006.  During this time they have become a vital partner in the production of our event and have worked with us to continually upgrade the security experience for ourselves and for our attendees.


PES has been proactive in making the festival experience a safe and friendly one.  Mark and his staff have always been quick to respond to our needs.  Regardless of the difficulty of our request they have been very professional in fulfilling the request or in helping to find a better solution.  Our experience with them is that they have been a team player and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that the job is done well.  We have also benefited from their insights and suggestions on how to improve our events.


In closing, I want to reiterate and emphasize their flexibility in meeting our needs.  This has enabled us to build a solid long-term relationship with PES.  I recommend their services and would be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

HI Mark!


I have to say your crew was the most polite, professional and personable crew we have ever worked with.  They helped us try to keep a lid on the chaos, and helped us train all our contestants on what's expected of them access-wise!


DK was a prince[...] and had some really great ideas that we implemented to tighten things up in places.  Your whole crew went above and beyond and took a lot of worry out of the event for us!


Thanks very much for your professionalism and fine crew.  We'll definitely be calling you for our event in the fall!
