Reggie Dozier

When I was working at Promise Productions in Glendale we had a 196 input console running playback through a Pioneer TAD high end with Augsberger bass bins. The sweetest sounds I ever heard coming out of those speakers were achieved at the fingertips of Reggie Dozier.

If you need production work done, Reggie knows how to make it work, make it sing, make it pop, and make it happen.
