The Aries Story
Since the spring of 1974, Fred and Chris Barrera have been working in the event industry, starting out as a part-time DJ service – one of the first mobile services in the St. Louis area. By the fall of 1974, Fred and Chris had several DJs working for them. They knew that they had to expand and created Aries Audio Enterprises.
For years they specialized in lighting and sound for small concerts, growing the business one client at a time. By the mid 1980s Aries was well known in St. Louis, working such impressive venues as Six Flags, the Arena, and even the old Kiel Auditorium.
In 1993 the name changed to The Aries Company. As they grew, they saw the need to add services – including staging, drapes, seating, tables, and linens. Today the inventory consists of anything you could ever need for an event and is constantly being added to and updated.
Needless to say, the services at The Aries Company speak for themselves. Aries is proud to be a leader in St. Louis’ party rental and technical services scene. After three decades of business, the “one client at a time” mantra still stands true. Each client is our best client.
