The new site is finally here. We've made quite a few updates to the studio and now our website will reflect those new capabilities. We now have music available to purchase of bands that have worked with us over the years with links to provide you with more info about the artists. Also, we are now providing a mobile sound service which basically allows us to move our venue to you for on-location live sound and recording.

Take a look around and see what we have to offer.

For 2016, Studio Anatomy is introducing a new concept for our events to allow bands to have complete control over how they are run. Bands will have the ability to customize their show by selecting the bands they want, booking a date, setting a ticket price, gathering a crew and keeping all revenue made during the show minus a small venue rental fee. As the event host, we will design a flyer for the show, provide our sound and lighting equipment as well as a live sound engineer, sell snacks and drinks and assist with selling band merch throughout the event.

Our ALL-AGES and ORIGINAL MUSIC show philosophy will continue with all future music events which are advantageous to the growth of the local music scene. Whether you're a 52-year-old Deadhead or a 14-year-old aspiring drummer, you are entitled to enjoy a fun and safe event in downtown Traverse City.

We are now booking events for March and beyond. Give us a shout for more details.
