Scott Rodgers was offered a whopping $5.00 an hour from his friend’s dad to help with the staging at a Deep Purple concert in 1973. It was the start of his career in the music industry and the beginning of a passion to provide the best staging and rigging services possible. That passion and desire to help others has been the inspiration for many who consider Scott a mentor. He has worked as a freelancer his entire career alongside some of the biggest names in music. Scott has also been a key team member of the TEC Award production, which brought him into the NAMM family back in 2004. His sprit and friendship is among the most meaningful attributes, along with his skill and knowledge. We were proud to sit down with Scott for his NAMM Oral History interview at the 2018 NAMM Show in Anaheim.
