Cindy Engler

Cindy Engler has been by husband, Rich Engler’ s side for more than 50 years as a spouse and partner, but also partner in building his highly successful concert promotion business that redefined the promotions industry in the 1970s. When they met, Rich was playing drums for Pittsburgh’s Grains of Sand and Cindy was a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Following a whirlwind romance and her successful career launch as a Kaufman’s girl and model, Cindy and Rich quickly embarked on a lifetime full of adventure. As Cindy built a modeling career, Rich built his promotion business and together they started a family. They were able to lean on one another as it wasn’t too far out of the ordinary that you’d find Cindy picking and driving KISS, or another rock band, from the airport to the gig that Rich was promoting. Through all of the incarnations of Go Attractions, Command Performance, Rich Engler Productions, DiCesare-Engler Productions or whatever, Cindy could be seen side-by-side with Rich posing for photos with bands and acts that Rich featured. But, as their children grew older, Cindy started to reach back to her passion for art. Modeling was replaced with art as she quickly became an extremely talented mosaic artist and eventually took up oil color painting, to which she mastered as well. Cindy remains active in the art community with occasional shows at local galleries featuring her mosaic animal skulls as well as her inspiring oil color paintings.
