The Clubhouse Studios Team.

The Clubhouse Studios Team.

It all started when...

Two friends from college wanted to use their expertise in sound and video production to help local performing arts organizations capture their performances at the highest quality and at a price point they could afford. 

Seven years, more than 100 clients, and countless performances later Clubhouse Studios has grown into Northern California's premiere Sound and Video recording Company.

It's been an incredible journey and we're excited to see where it goes.
