Funkadelic Studios

Funkadelic Studios Funkadelic Studios. Serving NYC's musicians for over 20 years.
(163)

Funkadelic Studios runs on a simple philosophy: the musicians are the priority. Funkadelic Studios has provided musicians an affordable home to rehearse, record, and reinvent their music for over 20 years. Two musician friends in Brooklyn started the studio as a way to connect with the NYC music scene and provide a place where musicians can do what they do best - make music. No matter how rich, poor, established, or underground an artist might be, Funkadelic provides all the services musicians need under one roof. The six Rs are essential for any artist and Funkadelic has them all covered: rehearsal rooms, recording studio, repair shop, rentals, retail shop, and a rock & roll club. Multi-national touring artists have rehearsed at the same rehearsal rooms as young musicians writing their first few songs; first electric guitar owners take their guitars to be repaired by techs who repair professionals’ gear; acts recording their first demos record in the same studio used on popular recordings in various media outlets. This sense of community and artist support is what gravitates many artists towards Funkadelic Studios. Beyond rehearsal and recording, Funkadelic provides other great outlets for artists to showcase their work. Open mic nights, open jams, event showcases, EP/album release parties, and talent competitions are only a few of an extensive list of services we provide musicians to help network and promote their art. We take the extra step to help the music community keep in contact with their fans, other musicians, and industry professionals. Funkadelic Studios understands that music isn’t just about a group of songs or compositions, it is about people: people who write the music, people who help with the technical aspects, and people who listen to it. For a full list of services, please refer to our website: www.funkadelicstudios.com

Funkadelic Studio has been proudly serving the music community in New York for over 25 years, providing a safe place for local artists to convene and create together. A large part of our success over the years has come from the assistance of our intern team, who work tirelessly to make sure that not only each room in the studio is tailored to the artist's specifications, but that the artists who come through are helped with any number of needs they may have. We train our interns in everything, from general upkeep to social media outreach, to technical and gear repair and maintenance, in hope that they will take these skills and apply them to their future endeavors as well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Unfortunately, due to the outbreak, the studio has not been able to help the interns as much as we wish to. Some come from very financially difficult situations, and many are musicians and artists in the local scene. A few have had canceled gigs, ranging from local club dates to national festivals. ALL of them have been impacted though, and we would like to assist them in as we always have tried too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We understand that you have a variety of options to pick from when it comes to organizations to donate to, but we hope that you will consider helping the studio and its interns in the same way they may have helped you in the past. To make a contribution please use the following link:

Look what happens at the studio when two greats get together. Just goes to prove the only technology needed was the technology to document it. All Talent. Much love and respect... Genesis Briggs and Terry Lewis. #PeopleNotThings #BeFree #FunkLife
Repost from Genesis Briggs: Trigger Wrng: Lyrics contain accounts of sexual assault, mental health issues & suicide. This is my friend and beatboxing pioneer Terry Lewis "Kid Lucky". He recently found out that he has stage 2 Cancer and is fighting for his life. Through his pain, he joined me for an acapella rendition of "A Brownsville Tale", he told me this track is his favorite song of mine. I'm honored to have him bless the first episode of #BarsAndBlueCups Please consider donating to his medical & living costs at: https://tinyurl.com/y942d45z If you support... like, comment & share it... then DM me for a FREE DOWNLOAD of the official song "A Brownsville Tale".

Ryan, I love the way your mind works. This is a fantastic project. Including Stephen is brilliant. Couldn't have a better co-pilot. Choosing Serge as the Engineer is well, the best decision you ever made. (no bias here). I donated. You rock!!!!
