Robert "Bobby" Allen has had an extensive career that has covered many aspects of the live event/live entertainment world. He started his career at an early age, starting out as a rigger and carpenter at the New York Metropolitan Opera.
From there, Bobby worked the circuit of theatres and stages of New York City and honed specialized skills working on television shows like Saturday Night Live, All My Children, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and ABC and NBC News shows, all the while still working performances and theatres like New York City Center Theatre's dance companies including Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, and Paul Taylor and Broadway shows including Lion King, Aida, and Phantom of the Opera.
The next rung on the career ladder landed Bobby at the mecca of live entertainment, Madison Square Garden. He started there in 1994, and worked regularly at MSG until 2009, making lasting friendships and many relationships that stand to this day. During his tenure in NYC, Bobby became a member of IATSE Local One and still holds his card to this day.
In 1995, Bobby took his first touring position with Luther Vandross as Head Rigger. This experience inspired him to open two of his own companies, RDA Entertainment Rigging Inc. and JAX Logistics Inc. In a very short time, Bobby moved up and assumed the roles of Staging Supervisor and Production Manager on international record-setting tours featuring artists like Andrea Bocelli, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Usher, Maroon 5, Beck, and many more.
In the past 10 years, Bobby has successfully transitioned between the worlds of touring, live events, festivals, sporting events, multi-act and multi-camera variety television shows, promotional marketing, large scale corporate activations and has even stepped into the political arena, as Staging Supervisor of Barack Obama’s Presidential Nomination Acceptance Speech in Denver.
Bobby joined PRG in June of 2011 as an Account Executive for the concert touring division, and now operates out of the PRG San Fernando, CA office.
In his spare time, Bobby enjoys spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and four children; cooking for friends and family using his secret BBQ recipes; a round of golf; or a refreshing hike in the Agoura foothills. Bobby is a trusted and seasoned entertainment professional.

Senior Vice President, PRG Music Group
John began his career in live event production in 1979 as the Concert chairman at California State University, Sacramento. He also managed local bands in the area and owned a small production company. RCA Records signed Steel Breeze to a recording contract with John as their manager and executive producer of the self-titled debut album which launched two top 10 singles. This was the big break that opened the door to the concert touring industry for John as Steel Breeze supported national tours for Kansas, Hall & Oates, and The Who.
When the band broke up in 1985, John began renting sound and lighting gear to local and national shows. During this time, John was drawn to the technology sector of the production world and joined Vari-Lite as Vice President. John stayed in the manufacturing and sales of automated lighting and control products. He helped usher in Coemar automated lighting products to the US. In 1996, he joined High End Systems and Flying Pig Systems as executive vice president, running their worldwide sales force and was also a member of their Board of Directors until 2006.
During this time, John saw lighting and video merge becoming one. He was instrumental in launching Catalyst, the first computer based media server and a forerunner of many to come. Although it was a valuable learning experience, the manufacturing and sales end of the business was not on the front lines of delivering the actual shows. John began to look for an avenue back to where he began his career.
This passion brought John to XL Touring Video in Los Angeles. After four years of unprecedented success there, he felt the need to create his own team and Chaos Visual Productions was conceived in December of 2008. Chaos was acquired by PRG in January 2015 becoming a part of PRG Nocturne.
