Bands often have a space they rehearse in and this can be a good place to record in too. Saving the need to uproot all the gear and cart it off to the studio!
I have made a number of recordings this way including the Peppermint Men, The Fields Beneath, The Rum Brothers and several jazz and piano recordings. (see recordings)
I can sometimes hire suitable venues myself, particularly for quieter ensembles i.e. little or no drums (jazz drums can be ok!) for a good price, including a nice piano!
Some spaces are a lot better than others acoustically, so if you’re thinking of doing a recording this way then get in touch and we can talk about it.
