Tone Tubby Appoints Alfredo Jayme As Artist Relations Manager
Frank Doris / Public Relations
Haight Ashbury, California, August 4, 2014 – Tone Tubby, manufacturers of premium-quality hempcone speakers for electric guitar and bass amplification announced it has appointed Alfredo Jayme as Artist Relations Manager. Jayme works closely with artists in ensuring they are equipped with the Tone Tubby speakers and speaker cabinets that best meet their musical requirements on stage and in the studio.
“Alfredo can do everything from advising artists on what speakers will best suit their needs to actually hand-building the speakers for them,” said Thom Brown, CEO of Tone Tubby. “He’s been involved in the California and national music scene for most of his life and knows more top musicians than either of us can keep track of. Many of them already use Tone Tubby speakers and it was a logical progression to bring him aboard to manage our artist relations.”
Jayme has been professionally involved in rock music since he was a teenager in the 1970s, lived across the street from Grace Slick and Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship and started working for Bill Graham Presents, where he was introduced to the Grateful Dead. “I was a stagehand, roadie, truck loader and jack of all trades with the Dead,” Jayme noted, “and worked on their famous ’70s Wall of Sound – talk about getting an introduction to speaker technology!” Jayme toured with the Dead until 1988. He has worked as an audio tech, roadie, stagehand, and in other capacities for The Santana Band, U2, Metallica, The Rolling Stones, Los Lonely Boys, Cirque du Soleil and many others and on films and TV shows including Titanic, Batman, Independence Day, Volcano, MTV Rock N’ Jock and more.
“The artists I work with have had numerous occasions to hear Tone Tubby speakers under every type of recording and performance situation imaginable and I think the speakers sell themselves,” Jayme said. “I learned early on how important speakers are as the last link in the musical chain and I’m proud to be working with a company that’s as dedicated as I am to helping artists achieve their sonic and musical goals.”
In addition to his musical involvement, Jayme worked as the in-house assistant to Richard Gentschel at San Francisco’s Masonic Auditorium for several special events and concerts. He received degrees in music law from the College for Recording Arts. Jayme is also a long-time guitarist.
