Scott Adamson

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.

Dani Seggewiss

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.

Steve Remote

Steve Remote

A dreamer, an innovator, and a self-proclaimed procrastinator, Steve Remote doubled-down on his career, and at the age of eighteen years old, knew his destiny lay in following his own path, and forging a career for himself in the audio industry. He reasoned that the money he would spend on school would serve him better if spent on recording equipment to capture some of New York’s most daring bands of the 1970’s.

Peter Shapiro

Peter Shapiro

It’s almost impossible to be a fan of music and not know the name Peter Shapiro. Chances are you’ve heard of places like Wetlands Preserve, The Capitol Theater, and Brooklyn Bowl. You may even be familiar with Relix Magazine, originally launched in 1974, which focuses on live music, festivals, artist interviews, etc. If the aforementioned still doesn’t ring a bell, I’m sure you know the names Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir. Peter Shapiro is at the center of all of those things and many more.
