the Photos and Videos pages for some of our latest photos and videos,
or if you take some at the studio, share them.
RMS Quick History & Summary:
Red Monkee Studio became active in early May, 2011. We set up and began production Recording,
Jam sessions, Practices, as well as Recording and Editing Music. Evolution of the studio itself, its design,
and its contents is a constant, even into 2013.
Near the end of 2011 we began Livestreaming our Jam Sessions in real time on LiveStream.com.
That account is no longer in use, but we still have the videos and the memories.
Early 2012 brought about some major changes. The recording equipment was moved to the band room.
The Sound booth became a recording booth. The studio was completely reorganized for simplicity
and for internal use only.
At the end of 2012, in mid December, we lost our founder and greatest visionary, Billy Johnson.
Again major changes in the studio. Reconfiguration of the Studio and its contents, and a
change of direction is currently in progress, but the last page has still not been written.
In 2013 we'll again be open for business, and production is expected to continue.
A return to a professional setup and return to our roots and original vision is in progress.
Digital drums are in place of the original drum set played by Billy Johnson as
Gizmo is getting in some practice on both the digital drums and using Rock Band.
Johnathan Cross has a mini drum set (or 3) and the Control Room is returning to its
original Purpose. Production, mixing, and mastering. To include video production.
We have a powerful new Intel Core i5 laptop, new carpet in the control room,
and new Plans for the future.

Billy Johnson always wanted to have a recording studio. One day while looking at one of his wife Kathy's family keepsakes, a small red monkey, it came to him. That'a great name for the studio! But why be normal & boring. Red Monkee was much more original and dIstinctive. So it stuck.
So building started, and well over a year later after a lot of expense & hard work, the Red Monkee Studios became active in early May 2011 after getting power hooked up and the first AC unit hooked up.
Since then there has been lots of activity, great music and lots of good memories & good times.
