Geoff Chown is a sound engineer of over 15 years, working as house tech in several local venues, many area festivals, and on tour with several local bands, most notably three years with The Glorious Sons spanning three continents. Prior to working in live sound, Geoff was an avid “taper” who would record most shows he attended. It was from the frustration of getting bad recordings that he took up live sound engineering. With the benefit of his taping experience and expertise with modern equipment, he will be teaching a simple, reliable, and realistic live recording technique. It is an invaluable tool for performer development and promotions, a potential foot-in-the-door of the music industry, and of course a unique source of entertainment.
