Why pay for studio time when we can record your show live?

“It’s like the cheapest studio time you’ve ever had!”
            -- Unknown, somewhat tipsy Skylark musician

Did you know we’ve got toys at Skylark that let us do things that even the big clubs can’t do? With our Presonus StudioLive 16.4.2, we can offer multi-track recordings of every show.

Let me say that again slowly. Your whole performance. Recorded. Multi-track.

At the end of the night, you just give us $20 (we pay the sales tax) and get to take home a high-quality recording of your show to remix and tweak to your heart’s content using whatever software you want (ProTools, GarageBand, etc.). You can also give the files to your favorite engineer for mixing. You're not paying much more than you would for a board recording (which is usually all vocals and kick drum with the rest of the band at the bottom of a well--in my experience anyhow).

  • release your first double-live album
  • add a secret live track to your EP
  • supplement your facebook/myspace with live tracks
  • videotape your performance and sync it up later with our high-quality sound
  • fix a flubbed note, edit out embarrassing stage banter
  • add backing vocals or instrumentation
  • completely remove that bongo player you just fired*
Don't feel sorry for yourself if you love this idea, but don't have a show booked at Skylark in the near future. Every single Wednesday night is open mic, which is fully backlined for bands. Why not record your open mic set?

P.S. Come to open mic or purchase your show recording before the end of July and only pay the low introductory price of $15 + tax.

*Sorry Steve, we’ve been meaning to talk to you for a while.
