The front of house engineer (aka FOH engineer) is a roadie who is employed to make the band sound acceptable to all parties. Part diplomat, part technician, part artist, the front of house engineer balances the needs and wants of the band management, the musicians, the record company reps, the local sound police and the audience in the hope that everybody goes home happy.

There are many types of front of house engineer. During the day they can be found in their particular nesting ground known as the mix position, with occasional raiding parties invading catering, whilst nocturnally they gravitate toward the back lounge.
