Cincy Lighting Services is owned by Cincinnati native Braden Hasselbeck and is now part of Cincy Entertainment Services. CLS is the product over 16 years of hard work and devotion. Cincy Lighting Services began as part of DJcincy.com a company that specialized in unique entertainment offerings. As the lighting portion of DJcincy.com continued to grow we separated the services and created Cincy Lighting Services to create a greater focus on lighting and more partnerships with other services in the Cincinnati area. At CLS we pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality lighting service in the area. We understand that anybody can offer lighting, but our experience and equipment is why our customers continue to choose us. Over the last decade, we have devoted our resources to acquiring the best equipment in the industry and delivering a unique experience no matter what kind of event. Our customers range from brides to Fortune 500 companies. It’s those experiences that make Cincy Lighting Services one of the most unique businesses in the industry. We offer everything from light designers to electricians to entertainment to ensure the highest quality event.
Professional Light Designer / President

I am a graduate of Miami University specialized in production in mass communications. Throughout high school and college I developed the skills needed to run a small production business. I continue to develop the necessary skills needed for the many services my businesses offer.
I work as a full time entrepreneur and light designer. I also continue to DJ as what I call a professional hobby! I have been a DJ for over 16 years and performed for thousands of events. DJcincy.com branched out and created Cincy Lighting Services a specialty lighting service serving Cincinnati's top events and weddings in 2011. The unique abilities offered by both of my businesses offer customers a one-stop shop to make their special event one they will never forget. In 2015 I further expanded our capabilities with the addition of Cincy Entertainment Service, a full service production company. Cincy Entertainment Services allowed me to incorporate the services already offered by CLS and DJcincy.com and continue to expand those abilities to better serve my growing customer needs. Visit www.Djcincy.com for more information on our DJ capability. In my spare time I work freelance for network TV (ESPN, ABC, CBS, FOX and more) I love the field of entertainment whether it’s a wedding, concert or major sporting event. I've been fortunate enough to work events like NFL Football, College Football and Bowl Games, Tennis Grand Slams, ESPN Winter x-games, Breeders Cup, MLB and MLB's All-Star Game and Home Run Derby.
I have been working hard since a young teenager. I began work at a young age starting a lawn care service at 13 mowing neighbors yards and expanded to nearly 40 properties by college. In slow months I carried jobs at McDonald's, Mike's Car Wash and BW's over the years. I began to DJ at age 15 with simple house parties and quickly began weddings and school dances, and eventually grew that business into its current status. Since college I have rebuilt my business with today's top equipment and created Cincy Lighting Services and Cincy Entertainment Services. I now specialize in a total production (sound, lighting, video and more). When I am not working (which is not often) I enjoy traveling with my family, often to the lake to wakeboard. I spend much of my spare time with my wife, daughter and son. My greatest accomplishment is being a husband and father. I love sports, music, movies and time with friends.
