"The Studio" opened
as an 8-track facility and quickly migrated to a
16-track facility when Dan acquired access to one of the
hand-built Stephens 16-track capstanless tape machines.
The Studio quickly earned a reputation as the place
to go for music production in Las Vegas.
The Studio became a popular
gathering spot for Vegas musicians and out-of-town players,
and hosted many nightly jam sessions and late night barbecues.
Studio remained in operation into 1982. While
negotiating plans to expand the facility, unfortunate
circumstances arose from irreconcilable differences
between the studio and the investor, resulting in Bob,
Dan, and Jim being removed from the project. Soon after,
the studio was closed.
