Alumni Update: Jeff Buchanan, Audio Production and Engineering

Jeff Buchanan graduated in 2009 from the Audio Production & Engineering program. After graduation, Jeff began to work at the Kool Haus as a Stagehand where he gained experience working in lighting. In the past few years, Jeff moved from doing lighting in the smaller rooms to the main room of the Guvernment for artists such as Afrojack, Axwell and Sebastien Ingrosso. He has also worked for corporate events and DJ events at the Kool Haus with Nicky Romero, Carl Cox, Wolfgang Gartner and more.

In January of 2010, Jeff also started working at Tattoo Rock Parlour (owned by Charles Khabouth who also owns Guvernment/Kool Haus) where he did the club night lighting Thursday through Sunday as well as corporate events.

In June of 2011, Jeff was offered the position of Lighting Director at The Mod Club. He started off this position with a major highlight – doing the lighting for The Weeknd’s debut sold out show. Now, over two years later, Jeff is still working at The Mod Club and has become a very successful Lighting Director. At The Mod Club, Jeff has worked with renowned artists such as Sam Roberts, Down With Webster, The Sheepdogs, Lights, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Machine Gun Kelly, Motion City Soundtrack, Fitz & The Tantrums, The Jezabels, Delta Rae & ZZ Ward, Rodriguez and more.

Even though Jeff has worked on many shows, he will never forget lighting Atom Willard of Danko Jones’ (Rocket from The Crypt, The Offspring, Angels & Airwaves) drum solo as he is one of Jeff’s all-time favourite drummers.

In addition to his full-time job at The Mod Club, Jeff keeps his audio production skills sharp by composing music in his home studio and DJing under the name Skugog. Jeff is currently looking forward to DJ a few shows in the fall, along with a very busy fall and winter season at The Mod Club.
