James started Entertec after several years as a freelance sound engineer, when an opporunity arose to acquire a small EAW inventory. After branching sideways in 2009 to start JT EventTruck, 2015 sees a significant re-investment in the PA inventory with L’Acoustics. Although work is a major part of day to day life, James occasionally ventures onto the ski slope, tinkles the ivories, and listens to Absolute 80’s on repeat.
Jamie takes great pride in delivering a calm, naturally dependable persona in even the most pressing of situations. Since joining Entertec in 2010 his extensive musical background has proved invaluable on site, and also back in the office environment working with customers to create solutions suiting any space and any budget. When not at work, Jamie can often be found playing bass, working on his own band projects, and shopping for long coats.
Mike joined the Entertec team in June 2016, bringing with him a weath of experience in audio, video, and event production – as well as introducing into the fold his own freelance contacts and ongoing client relationships. Mike’s relaxed approach to providing technical solutions is the perfect compliment to all the day to day operations… although working with RentalPoint does provoke the occasional frown! Away from the office, Mike is an avid fan of cider, shopping for small useful gadgets, and enjoys taking his Honda Goldwing out for a spin in the sun.

Freelancer Dan spends so much time at the office between tours he has his own desk! Working with our lighting partner Lightsmiths, Dan co-ordinates any lighting elements needed on an event, and now and again ventures over to the dark side when he is around long enough to come out on a sound job. Away from the office, Dan tours lights for Status Quo, plays with GoPro cameras, and walks his dog Winston.

When he’s not on the road, Fraser can usually be found drinking tea, listening to Planet Rock and mending things…
