Oral History Information
Jim Mingo learned much more than he can put into words from his experience in his school's marching band. Jim developed many skills he uses to this day including how to work within a team and how to listen to others. While playing in college he worked for a sound company and later would provide equipment for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. After touring for the sound company and working in the Pro Audio Division of Guitar Center, Jim had the opportunity to work for The Music People in Connecticut. He started in 2004 and since that time has worked his way up to Director of Pro Audio. Meanwhile, his love for marching band has come full circle with his children participating and him getting to be the band dad!
