Robert T. Goldstein
Bob Goldstein is a Baltimore boy, whose office today is just a mile from the first house he lived in. His grandmother bought him a Fender bass and a Silvertone amp in the early 1960s, and he was quickly playing with local bands. He was at the local Hi-Fi store so much he got a job there, and by 16, he was sales manager. There he started working on P.A. speakers and amps.
Soon his talent as a sound engineer became well known and he went out the road with Frankie Valli, which was the start of relationship that continues to this day. He worked for the Clair Bros. for a short time before focusing on his own company. Through the years, he grew MSI nationally and internationally, and today in addition to supporting touring acts, they do installation, TV/Broadcasting, and even some highly specialized sensitive government work.
Beginning with a childhood interest in amplified audio, Matt Snyder has been building a diverse catalog of professional production skills from freelance touring engineer to staff arena rigger to project management and design (and everything in between) for over 40 years.
Working around the country and in the Washington DC area before coming to MSI. At Maryland Sound since 2005, Matt brings a diverse and ever expanding knowledge set. From mechanical drawing and engineering, to project management and show sales Matt helps to oversee the effectiveness of the company as a whole. Even with all this Matt has not given up on his passion for Audio Engineering. You can find him every summer mixing at the Wolf Trap Filene Center in Vienna Virginia. Matt continues to apply and expand his expertise in the always exciting world of live events, and enjoys helping create memorable experiences at any scale.
