Sebastian Jaymes - Biography

Sebastian Jaymes grew up on the “North Coast" of America near Lake Erie.
As a live show producer he has put together shows on exotic islands, Castles, Archaeological ruins, and exotic some-times dangerous locales in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Japan, Russia, the Caribbean, and around the world. Over the years he has worked with countless celebrity entertainers in Hollywood and in venues worldwide.

At a very early age, Jaymes decided he wanted to see the world. At the age of nineteen he began to realize that goal first as a roadie, then tour manager for two hit rock n roll bands. (One from Cleveland.) In the latter 1960's, Jaymes worked with an up and coming North Coast horn band that took him on a wild ride through the 60's counter culture. Settling in California in the early 1970's, he found himself in the mainstream of the Los Angeles entertainment industry, at first as a roadie, or a PA on network TV variety shows. He moved on to tour management of various celebrity artists, touring the world over and realizing his childhood dream to see the world on someone else's dime.

For the next fifteen years, he hired out as a Freelance producer of large corporate events in many exotic locales around the world. ("I wanted to continue traveling internationally, so in between producing assignments I took on freelance projects as a live show technical director for corporate, TV, and live shows all over the world.")

As freelance opportunities all but dried up in the economic slowdown of 2008, he furthered his previously established involvement with USO on celebrity entertainment events at military bases and in combat zones around the world.

He has a passion for Archaeology and American Civil War history and has visited Civil War battlefields, ancient ruins, and museums around the world on his own dime. Jaymes currently lives in Southern California, writes books and screenplays, and is often part of a USO team that puts together entertainment events for military families around the world.

His first Book: Memoirs From The Road To Everywhere Vol. I The Road To Rock n Roll is part of a trilogy. Part II of his memoirs should be released in spring of 2018. Part III to follow later in the year.
