| Jimmy Markovich has worked in the concert business for almost 30 years as a stage manager, road manager, and sound technician. Jimmy has worked with Donnie Iris and the Cruisers since 1981, when Jimmy mixed the band’s monitors for the infamous 1981 Blossom Music concerts. Jimmy has mixed the front of the house for the band for over 20 years.
Besides regularly touring with Donnie Iris and the Cruisers, Jimmy also mixed monitors for The Ramones for 18 years (mixing the front of the house during the final year). In addition, Jimmy has worked with Quiet Riot, Chubby Checker, and Benny Mardones, and many other artists.
Besides being the Cruisers’ house engineer, Jimmy has also served as the band’s road manager for the last 15 years. Jimmy Markovich is a valued friend and a key part of what makes a “Donnie” show work. Give him a 'high five' the next time you see him.
We also want to acknowledge Jimmy’s team, including, but not limited to, Steve’s and Ted’s excellent adventure.
