Wayne has been active in the music industry for over 30 years and has undertaken a broad range of projects and roles in Live Performance and Touring from early days mixing sound and handling lighting in local venues, to booking and managing/tour managing acts of all genres, to acting as the CARAS rep on Canada’s east coast, through to his maturation into a world-class production and tour manager for international acts.
