We bought a rehearsal studio! Oh my frickin god! What are we doing?! This is ridiculous!
very atmosphere. The first thing we did was to open up the reception space. Previously the reception desk had been covered up so that no one could access it. The reason for this was that the previous owners had been taking overnight bookings where the band could access the studio 24 hours a day. With that in mind it made sense to make the reception impregnable. You don’t want anyone wandering places they shouldn’t.
As we won’t be offering that service (sorry guys) we thought it’d make a lot of sense to take the extra cladding down and open up the space again.
We had some help from Terry and Kevin, good friends of ours who had popped by to have a look around the space. Terry’s band Jilk have already been in the studio and made very positive noises about the space and what we could do with it. It’s great to have people around you who are so supportive of what you’re trying to do.
