​Brian Buchanan - Sound Designer


I provide this as a reference and recommendation for Rob Summers, with whom I have worked closely over the past three years.

Rob Summers has been No.1 sound engineer on Mamma Mia! – International Touring Production for the past three years and has worked tirelessly and consistently for the benefit of the show. He has succeeded in meeting all the considerable challenges of replicating this show in many varied venues around the world.

Rob Summers has very good technical skills combined with a natural flair for mixing music and a solid, practical approach to problem solving. He also shows good skills as a strong team-leader and Head of Department and would be a valuable asset to any production.

I thoroughly recommend and endorse Rob Summers to any prospective employer.
