Inside Look at Studio A @ Slam Academy

, , , , , ,

Classroom by Day… Performance Hall by Night

Slam Academy is a multimedia art and music studio located in Minneapolis, and Studio A – Performance Hall gets a lot of use for various different events and training.  The space hosts events in many disciplines, including live music by national and international talents, classes, lessons, and open studio time every week. The space includes a generous four-corner sound system and plenty of space to experiment with light, sound and images. When it isn’t being used as a classroom or a venue, you will often find our faculty hanging out there, working on their own music.

     

Studio A is our newly renovated space. It has a full range 3-way PA with custom 21″ bass bins stacked high, video projection, and seats about 45 people. The main room is used to host our larger classes, workshops, and special events. Studio A is a full-fledged performance venue, complete with a 4 channel, 3 way sound system, full DJ booth, and accommodations for an entire band.

One of the favorite features of Studio A is the recurring event every Friday from 4-6pm called OPEN DECKS.  This is an opportunity for prospective and current students to play on the 3-way PA system, whether it’s for practice or just a chance to show off some new skills, and get a sense of what it would be like at a real club venue.

Open Decks March 9 @ 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Open Decks March 16 @ 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Also every Friday in Studio A, from 6-10pm, is a recurring event called Slam Jam.  This is an opportunity for featured guest artists to perform for a live streaming event.  If you would like to request a booking for a Slam Jam set, please send an email to [email protected]om.  Check out a recent Slam Jam set by Tanya Leigh.
