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.
"Rob is, without a doubt, by far one of the best in his profession. He has proven himself to be excellent at this job whilst maintaining a friendly working relationship with other departments."
"Rob's experience and passion allows him to deliver only the very best on every project he works on. I can not recommend Rob highly enough for all things theatre sound related."
"On a personal level, Rob has shown a great deal of integrity and has been a delight to work alongside. Amiable and honest, he has never lost his passion for keeping the show at it’s absolute best."
"Rob was always concerned with the detail of the design, working hard to balance the clarity and quality of the vocals and music whilst serving the wishes of the director and producers and led the sound team well."
"Rob 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 would be a valuable asset to any production."
