How We Got Here
Rocky Mountain Audio was founded in March 2017 by Chris Rae.
Chris began running live audio for concerts in the late 90's for house shows (living room concerts) he hosted or filling in for FOH at DIY Records in Orlando, FL. His love of this expanded into: producing, recording and promoting bands; owning and operating a venue; throwing music festivals and playing in bands himself.
In 2011 he relocated to Fort Collins, CO with his wife and dog to start a family. Since then he has expanded into providing live event production for audiences up to 3000 attendees.
*2005-2011 Chris was a Production Manager and FOH Engineer for The Social in downtown Orlando, FL
