With over 20 years of concert production experience, Mike Bangs has spent most of his career as a Touring Monitor Engineer and Production Manager. On tour with acts such as Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Katy Perry, Tom Petty, Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Nick Jonas, Bangs has developed extensive real-world experience and has mixed well over 1000 shows across the globe. As an early adopter of live digital mixing, Bangs provided training and support for engineers switching from analog to many of the first large format digital consoles starting in 2004. In 2011, he adopted Allen & Heath as his console of choice for consistent touring, leading to a close relationship with the manufacturer. At the end of 2015, Bangs was added to the team as the Allen & Heath USA Live Sound/Touring Manager to support the unique needs of touring professionals on the groundbreaking new dLive mix system. In addition to his role at A&H, Bangs works as Monitor Engineer for George Strait and as an industry educator.
