Rumble Productions is an award winning production company that was founded in Albuquerque and has recently expanded to Key West, Florida. Rumble was founded in 2015 by Jessica Wachs after years of workshopping new musical improv styles with her a cappella choir. Merging those experimental musical ideas with improv and sketch comedy, this fun, new performance style was created and presented in the Southwest, drawing in great minds and great talent.
Due to demand, Rumble eventually expanded its entertainment offerings to a wide array of talent, providing unique, quality shows for private and corporate events. Rumble's live acts have performed at such places as The Historic Lensic Theatre Santa Fe, the Ruidoso Convention Center, the Albuquerque Theatre Guild Gala, The Alibi's "Best of Burque" Awards, The New Mexico Film Foundation Soiree, The Rampart Casino-Las Vegas, for Fortune 500 companies such as Keybank and the Motor Ford Company, on ABC's America's Funniest People, at The Second City, and on NBC's America's Got Talent.
Rumble has since expanded into film production, branching into the Hollywood scene where it began collaborating with high caliber clients and colleagues. This lead to TV development, show pitching, and music production amidst high end talent such as Herzog Studios, IPC Studios, and Netflix, as well as BAFTA, Emmy and Grammy award winning artists. Thanks to such connections, Rumble was able to complete filming Out of the Woods, a worldwide reality-docu-series, which is now in post production. Rumble is currently developing its first musical travel show, producing a Key West inspired musical comedy album, and expanding its film production services to be able to support more clients.
Rumble has also provided workshops and consultation across the nation, where its introspective uses of music, communication, and emotional intelligence have satisfied clients in ways ranging from providing innovation consultation that contributed to a 40% profit increase for multimillion dollar company "The Improve Group", to impacting lives with confidence building, mental block breaking, transformational workshops such as "The Vocal Lab" and "The Yes, And" workshops. Rumble is currently facilitating personalized team building and performance workshops for clients in Key West, which will soon be available worldwide.
A Wisconsin native with New Mexican roots and a Los Angeles history, Jessica is a Key West based singer/songwriter, personality, and content creator with a spontaneous, authentic flare. Jess grew up immersed in jazz, musical theatre, and choral music before a love for film, comedy, and a cappella evolved, igniting her innovation and eclectic creativity full time.
After performing internationally during her college years, Jessica formed the award-winning Rumble Productions, an Albuquerque entertainment company that produced for clients original and experimental content that ranged from personalized flash mobs and choose-your-own-adventure musicals to a cappella sketch comedy and improv.
Simultaneously, Jessica worked in film both behind and in front of the camera, taking part in such shows as Better Call Saul, Longmire, Jane Got a Gun, and most recently Rachel Bloom’s Mother Mary. Shortly after the Covid pandemic hit, she produced Out of the Woods, a worldwide docu-series where a cast and crew of over 50 documented the multicultural experience of the pandemic from diverse perspectives.
Currently, Jesica is creating musical comedy acts, developing television shows, and writing and releasing her first album and singles, which are designed to empower and give a voice to marginalized and otherwise overlooked or silenced groups.
