Music Mayhem

Studio

Recording has been a passion for many years, starting with old reel to reel valve decks in the late ’70s, four track tape decks in the ’80s, multi track reel to reel in the ’90s, digital recording in 2000. We have done many many recordings from live gigs to studio albums for BMG Sony. Our studio has a great basement jam room feel to put the artists at ease, while using excellent equipment to capture the true performance. Check the gallery for photos.
