BRAVAS Nashville (formerly Imagine Audio Video) has been in the business of bringing the latest and most advanced technology into your home for over 20 years. We do all the heavy lifting and advanced calculations to make sure you can use, and enjoy, your home’s technology. Let us help you save time, and potential baldness.

General Manager
Meet JOHN SHAFER
The first major defining moment in John’s life was watching the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 at the age of 11. Television and music have been major players in his life ever since. After high school and then 4 years in the Navy, he attended Indiana University, majoring in Telecommunications. After college, he worked at the Indianapolis ABC affiliate for 12 years, and then in an inspired entrepreneurial move, he left television production and moved to Music City to design and install Home Theaters. Top Gun, Indiana Jones… you remember. He has been in Music City for 20 years doing what he loves.
