Chez Stock is a experienced Tour Manager and Front of House engineer currently on tour with Amanda Palmer. She has toured extensively since 2012, building steadily on her no-nonsense work ethic, and a desire to continuously improve and grow as an engineer.
It’s an honor to be celebrating my 105th episode this week with our guest, Monitor Engineer Bruce Danz.
For the last 25 years Bruce has mixed monitors for some of Rock’s hardest hitting artists including Anthrax, Testament, Alice Cooper, Death Angel, and Buckcherry. He endured a sixteen-year run with Marilyn Manson while simultaneously mixing for Avenge Sevenfold, a gig that has lasted almost eighteen years.
After fifty years as a working and dedicated FOH engineer, Dansir McCullough still believes in the power of music, and the thrill it gives him night after night to stand at the center of it all, and push the faders up on over a hundred microphones.
Dansir’s big break came with Ted Nugent, who he would mix for from 1976-1984. Prior to that he had been with Bob Seger, the Rockets, and the Tea.
Music journalist Katherine Turman has certainly earned her stripes in the industry, documenting and sharing the stories and profiles of countless artists, in a long list of magazines, newspapers, and radio shows, such as Rockline, and Nights with Alice Cooper.
