"I had the honor and privilege to go meet with a friend yesterday to rehearse some beloved songs with a fellow Beatle fanatic. Music has been such a big part of my life. The love of the Beatles, their music, their talent, impact, coolness, etc., etc, (you could rave forever), have been with me from day one. It is fair to say that John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Star were my vocal coaches in life. Though I can't claim to their level of greatness, I always aspired to it and never ceased to appreciate it, or them, as the years rolled by. My Friend Eric Tunison shares this sentiment times 10!
Eric is a record producer and accomplished guitarist. His knowledge of music, and talent, is immense. He is also a Beatles expert. When he asked me over to his studio, I did not know what to expect. I knew he ran in a circle of multi talented individuals, many of which I have met through him, and the open mics at Abbotts Bar and Grille, sponsored by Groove Tunes Studios (http://groovetunesstudios.com). I figured it would be nice, but was not ready for what I walked into. I am not ass kissing. This is like admiring an awesome car, motorcycle, gun, guitar, or building. Giving props!
I am, admittedly, not a professional musician, so my exposure to recording studios is somewhat is limited, but I have some degree of talent and have been to a few. I also have an eye for beauty and an ear for music. I have seen photos and videos of pro studios. I have been involved in music my whole life. I can honestly say, I was blown away when I walked in Groove Tunes Studios. This is a first class business, elegantly established and decorated, with state of the art sound equipment. The play back room (not pictured) looks like something out of star wars. The environment is both professional and relaxing. I have never seen anything like it and did not even know what I was looking at half the time. The photos don't come close to doing the place justice. It was both posh and elegant. The equipment was futuristic. I felt like I was at Apple, Capricorn, Capital, or some other famous company. I felt special just being there and felt kind of rock starrish. Haha!!. I felt like a Beatle or Rolling Stone! It was truly an inspirational event. The experience was awesome, so is Eric!!!!
I could not recommend Eric or his studio highly enough. If you want to invest into professional recording, I think you could get more bang for your buck at Groove Tunes Studios than anywhere in town. I encourage all my music peeps to give it a look! If you ever want to meet Eric, he is up at Abbotts on Wednesday nights. He is very approachable and easy to talk to. Very cool man!!! I'm still Day Trippin on yesterday.
