Welcome to The Bunker Music Studios - 200 years in the making! We are situated in the grounds of Fort Regent, an impressive early 19th century fortress built on 22 acres of hilltop high above St.Helier in Jersey.
The space we occupy was designed to house cannon. Three granite chambers with solid walls of 5 feet sit 8 foot below ground. The cannon are no longer here, but the noise we make is equally impressive and vastly more pleasing to the ear!
The studios are jointly operated by an audio engineer and a professional drummer, which means we offer a variety of services. They include audio and music recording & production, music entertainment management, drum tuition, and studio hire for songwriting and band rehearsals. Whatever your music needs, get in touch, we're sure we can help.

The Live Room is fully equipped with Drum Kit, Bass Amp, Guitar Amps, PA and 12 channel mixer - A great space for songwriting and rehearsal sessions. The room is also used for teaching drums and for recording.
Rehearsal sessions are available to book in slots of two hours.

Sessions may be booked for most evenings of the week, day/night weekends, and on occasion daytime Mon-Fri. Please enquire.
