Mike Muggli - Music Lessons & Recording


I have been playing piano and synthesizers for over 40 years, and have 25 years of experience in recording and music production. Studio A can handle bands and solo artists, and I have many instruments that could add to your project. And if you’re a synth or keyboard player like me, there are many toys to share! I also teach piano lessons, as well as more specific synthesizer lessons, music theory, and production lessons.


Marc Bulandr - Singer & Songwriter


I’m a singer/songwriter with a focus on vocal, guitar, piano, and perform meaningful songs that match the audience and venue. My goal is to leave the world in a better place than I found it.


Cathy Grochowski


A guitarist, vocalist and occasional recording artist, Cathy performs at fund-raising events for charity organizations, churches, and elsewhere. At the foundation of her art is the desire to provide joy to others via a unique musical style.  Working with many performers from all over the northwest suburbs, her goal is to create an engaged listening experience for a variety of audiences. Having a party? Cathy might be just the right addition to your event.

Music: Always Remember Us This Way (originally sung by Lady Gaga). I recorded this at Starbell Hatchery Recording Studio in Harvard, Illinois.


Joe Diamond


The “Joe Diamond Studio Series” features two intimate and unique one-hour shows that run Saturdays throughout each month! Seating is limited to 13 people per show! Joe Diamond is the Mystery Performer everyone is quietly talking about. Some call him a mind reader, others call him psychic, and still more call him a magician. You now have the chance to decide for yourself, up close and personal!
