STORAGE LOCKUPS

Lockable sheds are available so you don't have to haul your stuff to/from practice each week.

Individual metal 4'x5'x6' sheds with lockable sliding doors.  Secure and convenient.  Gear is located a few feet from your rehearsal room and the load-in door.  Locks provided, and carts to move gear between shed and studio.

STORAGE RATES

FREE with your active Band Membership  

$50/month payable in advance without a membership,

$5/overnight, and if paid in arrears,

$25/month with SOLO Membership

Storage is only free while your band membership is active, so if you let the membership lapse, please come get your stuff and return the lock to the front desk. If you don't, you will be charged $5/night until membership is renewed or your items are picked up.

Storage left unpaid after 90 days is considered abandoned, and will be disposed of.

PRIVATE STUDIOS

We also rent private studios where you leave your stuff set up 24/7 in a room that only you access. Private renters have a key to their floor of the building, and to their own studio. See rooms for details.

INSURANCE

Its always a good idea to keep an up-to-date list of gear for your insurance agent. Serial numbers, photo and video documentation are great. Because we are a licensed rehearsal hall, your existing homeowner's or renter's policy should easily cover your gear kept at this location without an additional premium.  It is your responsibility to discuss it with your agent, but all you have to do is give your current insurer our address, and a list of items that you plan to store here. Then you're covered!  

We take every precaution to run a tight joint and have not had an incident result in a claim since day one when we opened  Utopia or even Berzerker Studios in 1/02.  Regardless, as a pro musician you ought to have your own coverage.

Every main hall studio comes equipped with a vocal PA & 2 mics/cables. Anything else you need? Just ask!
