John Brown has shared a stage with the likes of Elton John, Garth Brooks and Billy Graham, but he's not an evangelist or a professional musician. Nevertheless, those celebrities and many others have stood on stages designed and maintained by his company, Brown United.
Brown got his start at the age of 14 when he went to work for his father’s scaffolding business. It was this, along with his touring experience with Rolling Stones and the Eagles in 1977, that he was sold on making a career of the temporary structure industry.
