This week it’s just me in the studio riffing on the state of affairs of Roadie Free Radio and friends.
Scott Adamson is a touring FOH audio engineer and the founder of The Production Academy, an online school dedicated to helping musicians and sound engineers get the technical knowledge they need to have successful shows.
A California native who has been working in the music industry since the late 1990’s, Scott moved to Iowa with his family in his early teens, and it was there that he started playing the drums. His musical ambitions led him to play in several bands and he slowly developed an interest in the live sound aspect of the shows as well.
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.
For the last eight years Bruce Reiter has been mixing Front of House for the hard-hitting band, Five Finger Death Punch. With a deep knowledge base of both the analog side and the digital side, Bruce has honed his skills and reputation with such artists as Megadeath, Social Distortion, Static-X, Fear Factory, Limp Bizkit, Rancid, and Powerman 5000.
