We love to see our Live Sound alums returning to life on the road! 

Spring 2016 grad Michael Rhodes is back out on tour with Thomas Rhett. Michael has worked as his guitar tech since June of 2017, and he started his career straight out of The Blackbird Academy on tour with Kelsea Ballerini working as a monitor engineer and backline tech. 

We wish good luck and safe travels to Michael on The Center Point Road tour, and we can’t wait for all of our graduates to be back at it and doing what they love! Want a career in touring? Check out our Live Sound Engineering program to learn the skills that will get you out on the road.
