Raised in a castle overlooking Sydney Harbour, Bruce Jackson dropped out of university course in 1968 to build stroboscopes, amplifiers and colour-organs for the emerging psychedelic light show culture. Little did he know that in just three years he’d be on the road managing Elvis Presley’s sound and poised to change forever how live concert sound was presented. In six years with the Elvis Presley’show Bruce established a close professional and personal bond with Elvis who trusted him implicitly to deliver the best sound possible. Bruce’s inventions and technical advances were adopted by the entire live concert touring industry.
