Auction Item: Studio Time at Sugar Hill

15 Dec

At the benefit on January 14th, we’ll be auctioning off some one-of-a-kind items and opportunities. As soon as they are donated, you’ll read about them here. Your chance to bid will be January 14, 2012.

OK, bands, you know you were already planning to do some recording. Now, here’s your chance to do it right.

The generous team at renowned Sugar Hill Studios is donating four hours of time with a sound engineer in Studio A.

Yep, that’s right. You can lay down tracks inside these storied walls:

SugarHill has entertained many stars of the music business from all over the world. Blues legend Lightnin’ Hopkins first recorded here in 1948.   The 1950’s rock ‘n roll classic “Chantilly Lace” by the Big Bopper and Freddy Fender’s platinum-selling album Before The Next Teardrop Falls were both recorded here. The Rolling Stones, Johnny Winters, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Johnny Rodriguez, B.J. Thomas, Ted Nugent, Johnny “Rabbit” Bundrick (Keyboard player for The Who), Todd Rundgren, The Bubble Puppy, Selena, Janis Joplin, Roy Head, Arnett Cobb, Christopher Cross, Red Krayola, 13th Floor Elevators and Asleep at the Wheel are just a few names out of the SugarHill history book. (For more history & name-checking, visit the Sugar Hill website.)

Many thanks to the whole Sugar Hill team for all they do—as an anchor to the local music community and a conduit to some of the best music in the world.
