Jess Ford

Co-Founder, Executive Producer

Jess has wasted his entire adult life working in and around the music and entertainment biz.

Born a Minneapolitan he was educated and hardened by life on the east coast playing in bands and working countless nights in the legendary discos, live music, and comedy clubs of New York and Boston. Eventually he dragged his experience, his common sense, and his surly demeanor back to his birthplace to make new friends and influence people.

Jess can talk the talk but will always veer into irreverence to prove his point. He can walk the walk but prefers riding a bike. He values humor, honesty, humility, and coaching youth sports. Working at Rumble with incredibly talented people creating new things is his dream come true, sad as that might seem.


Dorene Manchi

Executive Producer

Dorene grew up in the Twin Cities, and despite her actual musical ability being limited to a weekly organ lesson as a kid, she loves music and surrounds herself with it at all times.  After producing radio spots for Craig Wiese in the early 90s, Dorene decided to bail on MN and head to the Big Apple.

In NYC, she worked in audio post for several years, Live Television, DVD production, then shortly after 9/11, moved to Hollywood to produce high-end DVD feature and episodic releases; The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Sex and the City to name a few of her favs.

She moved her family back to the East Coast once again for a brief stint running a video production company, before deciding…. screw it, better to raise her kiddo back in good ‘ole Minnesota– “I mean, heck… look how I turned out!”
