Employment History.

 Ben Jumper has owned Soundcheck Nashville since 2004.  Soundcheck is recognized as one of the largest, full production rehearsal facilities in the world.  Since purchasing Soundcheck, Mr. Jumper has also expanded the Soundcheck brand into the Austin, TX market when Soundcheck Austin was opened in April 2010.  He was also responsible for buying Centerstaging in Burbank, CA out of bankruptcy in October of 2009, along side partners Mitch Clark and Scott Scovill.  Mr. Jumper was the managing partner of Centerstaging until May 2010 when flooding devastated Nashville, TN and he needed to focus his attention on Soundcheck.  In recent months, Mr. Jumper has taken steps to build Tennessee’s first Film/Video Soundstage.  Construction is expected to start this fall.

Mr. Jumper first got his start in the entertainment industry in 1972 as a sixteen-year-old working as a local runner for Sound Seventy Productions in Chattanooga.  In 1976, he went on the road with Charlie Daniels to head Security and provide production assistance until 1980 when he came back to Chattanooga to start Chatta/Tik.
