Band/Solo Rehearsal Room Cancellation Policy

Mystery Street Recording Company has a 48 hour cancellation / rescheduling policy for rehearsal spaces. This means that if you miss your appointment, need to cancel or change your appointment with less than 48 hours notice, you will be charged the full amount of your rehearsal.

With greater than 48 hours notice, you receive a credit memo and are welcome to reschedule that rehearsal one time within 30 days of your originally cancelled rehearsal date.

If only one person in the band is able to attend, you will be given the “Solo Rehearsal” rate of $15/hr and a credit will be issued on the balance, and useable within 30 days of the rehearsal date.

The Reason For It

This policy has been put in place because as a small, boutique studio, we only have 3 available rooms available, so schedule changes have a big impact on our day-to-day operations and last minute cancellations prevent another band from having place to rehearse or record at a time they might have needed. Plus, as a personalized appointment based business, our staff is scheduled specifically for you when you book. And while we understand that last minute problems occur which will result in occasional cancellations, we encourage the band members that can make it to come rehearse anyway! All of us here play in bands and know that sometimes the most productive and focused songwriting sessions happen with a smaller number of bandmates, so take advantage of those moments for music’s sake! Even if it is one member alone, it never hurts to brush up on your instrument (especially if your band members keep canceling on you!).

Freelance Studio Rental Policy

Freelance rates at Mystery Street are as follows:

$45/hr recording- 7 PM to Midnight Monday-Friday
$35/hr recording- All other times
$25 if you only require use of the control room (note: total silence is not guaranteed at this rate. All other rates above include the use of Studio A, Studio B, Vocal Booth, and Control Room)

With notice, assistant engineers are available for $20 per hour during your sessions. We typically recommend adding an assistant engineer for at least the start of your first session here, to help you get accustomed to the studio. 

While subject to changes, our gear list can be found here: If there is  something specific that you need for your session, please let us know in advance to ensure its availability.

Payment for freelance sessions is due in full at the time of scheduling. We cannot offer rescheduling or credited cancellations on freelance sessions. Any cancellations are subject to forfeit of payment.
