Coffeehouse Studio Celebrates 20 Years on Main Street
You might never have noticed that there's a professional audio recording studio on Main Street in Middletown, but just down an alley at 510 Main Street, Michael Arafeh has been recording music and voice for two decades. Here's a note from Michael:
Just a quick note to mention that this Saturday, August 1st, marks twenty one years to the day that I have been in business as a music recording studio here in Middletown. Nineteen of those years have been at my present North End location.
As I enter my twentieth year on Main Street, I would like to say that I am very proud to be a part of our Middletown community and especially our arts community. To mark the occasion, I will be having an open-house celebration at my studio on Sunday, September 13th, from Noon to 8pm. Please make a note to stop by and say hi, meet some great music artists, and share a few stories and toasts. It will also be a good opportunity to see the studio if you have never visited before. I will be sending out a note the week before the open house as a reminder.
I have been preparing a complete list of all the groups and artists that have recorded at The Coffeehouse over the years, as well as a “101 fun facts about The Coffeehouse” fact sheet. I have also been scanning an assortment of album covers of many of the published projects to emerge from the studio. It has brought back a lot of memories, and it will be fun to share with everyone. I hope to see you there.
