Thunder Studios is a full service rehearsal, recording, and mastering facility located in the heart of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, in the beautiful state of Hawaii, USA. The facility features five fully equipped rehearsal studios with backline equipment and PA system as well as capability to record rehearsals “live”. The recording studio is based around a 16 track Universal Audio Apollo Pro Tools system with Solid State Logic and Audient preamps.
Thunder Studios staff are all musicians in the local scene. In addition our house engineer/studio owner Brian has many years as a professional musician, tour manager, production manager, live sound “dude” and studio guru. He has worked with many top artists to include Wayne Newton where he was hand selected to be Wayne’s production manager on two USO tours. In addition he worked FOH engineer at several casinos in the Biloxi/Gulfport MS area from 2000-2004. The first incarnation of Thunder Studios was opened in Ocean Springs, MS where he worked alongside several groups that eventually garnered major record deals. His breadth of experience on the road as a tour/production manager and engineer coupled with his studio experience has made Thunder Studios the go to facility for discerning musicians and artists who expect great customer along with excellent gear and great sounding rooms.
Brian is also retired from the US Air Force and currently works as a meteorologist during the day where he keeps a vigilant eye on developing tropical cyclones in the Pacific. Ask him first before you board your windows and spend $$$ stocking up on bottled water. He has not been wrong in 7 years.
