Jamie Cohen – dad, DJ and sound guy – brings more than 40 years of live sound experience to the ZUMIX Z-TECH team. From a young age, Jamie has been fascinated with music and the effect it has on all of us. He got his start in the audio world interning at noted Boston studio Downtown Recorders, working with local and Boston-based national musicians. From there, Jamie was drawn to live sound and the immediacy of an in-person musical experience.
Over the last 40 years, Jamie has worked with many local, national and international bands, as well as spending three years as the house sound engineer for the Boston production of Blue Man Group. Jamie also spent 20 years in the corporate world, working at famed audio company Lexicon and later at Extech/FLIR, managing technical support, customer service and technical training. In 2019, Jamie started his own sound reinforcement company, at the same time becoming a mentor at ZUMIX. In 2022, he stepped into the A/V Coordinator position, where he has found his happy place.
