Our History:

Bergsten Music

40 Years of Productions

Bergsten Music started in the mid-1960’s when Andy Bergsten began to acquire both backline and sound equipment for his own bands and those that played around the Worcester area. In 1968, Van Morrison used Bergsten’s equipment for a show that Andy’s band also played as the opening act. That was his first professional rental. Bergsten continued to provide gear and technical support for his band throughout the 1960’s and 70’s.

Later, in 1977, after graduating Berklee College of Music, Andy Bergsten held a job as a rep for Syndrum Electronic Drums, which quickly became a key part of his growing backline experience. With the addition of the Syndrum, Bergsten Music officially became a backline rental company. This led the way to working with local Boston bands like The Cars who utilized the Syndrum on the intro of “My Best Friend’s Girl.”

Through the 1980’s, the venues surrounding Boston such as the South Shore Music Circus, The Cape Cod Melody Tent, and Great Woods (now the Comcast Center) had an increasing demand for backline. As a result, the need for additional help lead Bergsten to hire the company’s current Vice President and General Manager: Greg Borsari, a dependable and knowledgeable audio engineer who Andy had known since 1975.

As the 1980’s drew to a close, Bergsten Music was afforded the opportunity to provide services for the KISS 108 annual radio show. This concert, one of the largest annual concert events in the world, had almost thirty acts. With this client, Bergsten Music became a major player in the Northeastern market for backline and is now the premier company for service and inventory.

Throughout the 1990’s Bergsten Music grew in reputation and size while working with some of the world’s favorite artists like Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, Aerosmith, Don Henley, Elton John, Sting, and a host of others. The client list quickly became a who’s who of the worldwide music industry.

Recently there have been two key changes to Bergsten Music Inc. which have evolved the face and aim of the company. One was the acquisition of Showmix, a well-respected, Boston-based sound company; the second was the move to a much larger warehouse facility in Hingham that could support the orchestration of a company that now does hundreds of shows per month.

We would like to thank all of the clients and artists for their support and trust. Through them we have built a company that is the standard for conveying backline and pro-sound services.
