Mike Guzzo

Mike Guzzo is the man behind the “Angry Sound Guy” column. Though he got his start as a musician playing horns in school and then in dive bars, he soon became a respected event DJ and sound guy. When he took over as the head sound engineer for several venues and events, he began to nurture his anger toward the incompetency he saw in both his own profession and the bands who were too “diva” to listen. Heed his words of wisdom and you could be spared errant beer bottles and extended profanity, as well as make more money through better performances.
