Robert "Bob" Lindquist: Broadcaster, publisher, Blogger and Internet Marketing Spirit Guide. Founded and published Mobile Beat: The DJ Magazine from 1990-2006. launched Singer&Musician Magazine (the print predecessor of Live2Play) in 2005. Pioneer in Internet radio to promote Indie Artists. While most publishers were busy trying to protect their outdated business and distribution models, he was looking to the future and giving away PDF versions of Singer&Musician long before any other publication in the MI or Pro Audio markets.
Bill Evans: AKA The Reverend. Guitar player. Singer. Sound guy. Pontificating pundit pain in the patoot. He was the editor of GIG magazine for bands and musicians from ’95 until ’02 and more recently the founding editor of Front of House magazine from ’02 until March of 2011. He has been pushing at the confines of the publishing envelope in ways that have both puzzled and pissed off publishers (including the ones he worked for) since ’94. He is the author of Live Sound Fundamentals and co-author with GIG founding editor/publisher Quint Randle of Making Money Making Music: The Musicians’ Guide To Cover Gigs. For some reason he can’t explain, some of the best audio engineers in the world actually welcome him at their shows.
Linda Evans: Photographer. Graphic designer. Artist. Solver of seemingly impossible situations. Social Network Queen. Quite often the voice of reason in a group of lunatics who come up with an idea a minute. She is known among the entertainment community of Las Vegas and in photo pits from Coachella to Roskilde as the Photo Diva. She has been a publishing pro since the tools of the trade included border tape, ruby lith and molten wax and has successfully made the transition to Photoshop, iPads and PHP. Award-winning copyeditor. She has guided the look and feel of Live2Play since it was still a magazine called Singer&Musician and was present at the birth of SoundProLive. And she does it all while putting up with The Rev. for going on 24 years.
Andrea Bensmiller: Wicked good singer. Guitar player. Bassist. Polished writer and purveyor of the progressive POV. Major league geek. Artist. One of the rare cases where the geek and the artist actually reside in the same body and mind and manage to not only co-exist but to feed each other. She has created and maintained big databases for “straight” businesses by day while evenings were spent as part of a groundbreaking all-female electronic quartet called Jariya. Berklee College of Music grad. Teacher. Full-time working player in the live entertainment capital of the world. She has unblocked the ears of stuck-in-the-‘70s musicians and widened the thought horizons of followers all over the Web. When the team gets tired she is usually the one still pushing them up the hill.
