With the proliferation of home studios and the decimation of recording budgets, the challenges of the businesses have grown exponentially. Entrepreneur Jimmy Giglio of Mates, the North Hollywood Cartage, rental, storage and rehearsal studio company can definitely vouch for this. The company was founded by his partner, entrepreneur Bob Brunner. It all began back in the early 1980s when Brunner who had grown up in New York, opened his first rehearsal studio. The beginning was tough with hardly any investors. It was only later, that he was able to diversify and started the cartage division.
