John Stiernberg 1951-2017

In Audio, home_page, Industry News by admin

John Stiernberg, 66, President and Founder of Stiernberg Consulting, passed away November 11, 2017, after a months-long battle with cancer.

A Chicago area native, John was deeply committed to his college sweetheart and wife of 45 years, the former Jeanne Broughton. Together they founded Stiernberg Consulting in 1993, a seminal business development consultancy within the music, audio-video, and entertainment technology industry. Despite his influential role as a guiding force behind many of the industry’s success stories, John maintained an intentionally understated, behind the scenes profile to keep the spotlight on his clients.

An accomplished bluegrass and gospel musician, John was an ardent music lover and aficionado, with an encyclopedic knowledge that spanned multiple genres and eras. He embraced technology with equal fervor, cultivating a keen insight and understanding of consumer and professional technologies. But it was John’s business acumen that informed his work, guiding the CEOs and business trajectories of the industry’s dominant players and rising stars.

DiGiCo SD9s are “The Very Next Thing” for Casting Crowns on Tour

digico_casting_crowns_4Most artists tend to pursue excellence in either the spiritual or the secular realms. Casting Crowns, however, has managed to stay at the top of their game in both, winning a Grammy Award and a Dove Award for their Contemporary Christian rock music that has successfully crossed the divide since 1999, when the band formed as part of a youth group at First Baptist Church in downtown Daytona Beach, Florida.

Casting Crowns is out on the road again this fall with “The Very Next Thing Tour,” which takes the group to arenas and churches across the Midwest, South and East Coast. The songs may be familiar to millions of listeners—the band’s career sales have exceeded 10 million records—but the sound is now even better thanks to a pair of DiGiCo SD9 consoles the band is using at front of house and monitors for the first time. The consoles were provided by Blackhawk Audio, which is also providing the JBL VerTec PA system and Meyer subwoofers that the band is carrying on tour.
