THE JAMBOX HISTORY
JAMBOX Entertainment Studios had its humble beginnings in the Sound View area of The South Bronx. The company was started by Lee Evans back in early 1980s as a 4 track recording studio in a small 1 bedroom basement apartment. He took his living room and made it his bedroom space, took his small bedroom and made it into his personal studio.
Due to Lee’s tenacious desire to experience different styles of music, his popularity from being in a very popular singing group, his reputation of being a devoted musician and music knowledge gained thru his attendance at NYC’s famed Music & Art HS and music colleges,
Lee attracted local talent and honed his musician and recording chops. He started with a 4 trk cassette, and eventually upgraded to 8 trk reel to reel
Says Evans about the origin of the studio’s name: “It was always tight and hot as heck down there. Guys would say it felt (and smelled) like a sweatbox but man… we used to jam!” Thus the name JAMBOX was born.
Lee Evans and JAMBOX was ready. JAMBOX The Beginnings In 1989, JAMBOX Recording Studios NYC relocated to the East Village and started to grow even more due to the new convenient location.
