He will be based at the distributor’s Farmingdale, NY office, providing national technical support for the digital console manufacturer in conjunction with DiGiCo U.S. technical manager Taidus Vallandi.
Prior to joining Group One, Sciacca most recently served as systems technician and audio engineer for the Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band, which tours with a pair of DiGiCo consoles (SD10 on front of house and SD8 for monitors). He also spent several years based in the metro New York area working as a freelance audio engineer for SK Systems, Eastern Stage Productions (ESP) and KM Productions.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Chip to both the Group One and DiGiCo families,” says Kelly. “His 20-year career as a top systems tech, audio engineer and repair technician for a variety of companies has given him a solid troubleshooting background and our customers will certainly benefit from his experienced insight and assistance.”
Sciacca adds, “DiGiCo has always been my first and favorite choice for digital consoles. They have fantastic audio quality, a feature set no other manufacturer can match and the flexibility to be easily configured to optimize workflow. I’m looking forward to delving even deeper into my DiGiCo knowledge.”
