After officially opening with a grand reopening in 2015 after moving downtown. Bad Racket originally formed a home in the Cleveland music community with founders James Kananen, Thomas Fox, and Adam Wagner. Many hands make light work. and as business developers we knew Bad Racket would have to evolve to survive. Built around the concept of a performance and studio space, our studios were designed and built to be world class recording studio. Our space continues to evolve, now featuring a brand new recording studio facility located downtown. Housing our corporate offices, video editing suites, and a state of the art recording studio, we officially opened our doors to the community in 2009. Working with various national and international entertainment businesses in a project management capacity for several years. Its exciting to bring so much talent under one roof, and I’m sure Henri, Hunter, and Evan will help bring Bad Racket into a new era of excellence.
Its an amazing space, with great music business potential. We have a lot of talented people working in and around Cleveland. Our goal was to bring something unique and original to the rust belt. and we owe a lot to everyone involved. We’ve succeeded to making our space one of Ohio’s top recording studios, and we look forward to making great records, and pushing them out into the world through some terrific performances in our recording studio downtown.
