RED STAR MUSIC
Since 2004, Red Star Music's rehearsal studios have been the prefered choice for local and touring musicians. Situated in Bowen Hills (a stones throw from the musically abundant Fortitude Valley) we're easy to get to from any part of town and are open 7 days. Over the years Red Star Music has played host to many established Australian and international artists including Regurgitator, Laura Marling, Dead Letter Circus, Noiseworks, The Beautiful Girls, The Butterfly Effect, Resin Dogs, The Gin Club, Six Ft Hick, Lynchmada, The John Steele Singers, The Rocketsmiths, The Amity Affliction and a vast array of other local musicans covering most genres.
Red Star Music was manifested to fill a void Brisbane's music community was dealing with silently and begrudgingly. Here, you can rest assured that your studio will be clean, in good repair and sound great. In the unlikely event that anything should go wrong, one of our friendly team members will be around to help.
Organise a session and see why Red Star has quietly established itself as Brisbane's premier destination for music rehearsals of any sound or size!
