Dani Seggewiss

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.

Hank Fury

Hank Fury

Today's guest is Systems Tech Hank Fury, no stranger to the road and the perils that exist out there. This episode has all the elements of a great story; love, passion, sacrifice, and of course, redemption. 

A New York native and current Brooklyn resident, Hank's baptism into the world of Rock 'n Roll started at one of the most famous clubs in Manhattan's lower east side; the famed CBGB's. It was here that Hank first learned how to make do with the equipment he had, functioning or not. The road soon beckoned, and Hank went willingly, criss-crossing his way around the country, honing his skills and soaking up knowledge night after night.
