Recording studio celebrates grand opening


 The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 7 celebrated the ribbon cutting in honor of the Grand Opening of The Hub’s music recording studio at 1825 Spring Arbor Rd.  Ribbon cutting attendees had the opportunity to tour the music studio and enjoy food and drink from Grand River Marketplace.

 The Hub is a not-for-profit community teen center that provides a safe, fun, and positive place for teenagers.  Founded in 2011, they provide a place for teenagers to go after school and on the weekends. The Hub is staffed with positive adult mentors who are building relationships and providing opportunities for the youth of Jackson. Since January 1st, the Hub has welcomed over 2500 teenagers from the Jackson area into their facility. Teens can do homework after school, participate in the volunteer staff program, and with the grand opening of the music studio, they can record music or create art.
 “So many teenagers never develop their musical gifts because they don’t have the money,” said Ben Redmond, Executive Director. “We believe this studio will provide an opportunity for teenagers to develop as musicians and as people.”  In the new studio, teens can record their own music, learn about the technical aspects of recording music, take music lessons, and practice the skills they are learning. The studio is available at no cost, so that every teenager in the Jackson community can have the opportunity to develop as a musician.
 The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit association of businesses and non-profits, committed to strengthening their businesses and the Jackson Community. With a  history reaching back to 1909, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce supports its members through promotion, advocacy, collaboration, networking events and education.
