Live at Lagond Music: Peeking Behind the Curtain: Rock 'n' Roll Life On the Road

Live at Lagond Music: Peeking Behind the Curtain: Rock 'n' Roll Life On the Road

Join me as I take the stage with legendary Audio Engineer, Robert “Nite Bob” Czaykowski, and veteran Tour Manager Rich Nesin, as we take a look at two extraordinary careers in the music business spanning the last fifty years. 

Both Rich and Nite Bob have deep roots in the industry that start against the backdrop of the late ‘60’s, early ‘70’s, and include such artists as Bob Dylan, Aerosmith, Steely Dan, Iggy Pop, Steel Pulse, New York Dolls, Rich Robinson, Kiss, Ace Frehley, and Blue Oyster Cult.

Dani Seggewiss is a Monitor Engineer originally from Cologne, Germany, who currently resides in Leeds, in the U.K.

At nine years old Dani went with her mom to see a concert, and upon seeing the monitor and FOH engineers in action, she knew that that was what she wanted to pursue. Not that she had any idea of how to do it or how to start, or even what they were doing, but she knew that whatever it was struck a chord with her, and that she had to follow her instincts.
