The new Blackout Beat recording studio will be in Denver’s new Drive building in the Taxi development.

In late January The Blackout Beat will open the doors to their brand new upgraded recording space located in Denver’s Taxi development in the rapidly expanding RiNo Arts District.  The studio can be found on the first floor of the newly completed Drive building.  This new storefront space is by far the largest creative space The Blackout Beat has occupied and it includes some great new amenities such as neighboring  ReFuel Sandwich shop and Boxcar Coffee — two new Taxi additions that are located right outside the door of the new studio.  The new space will also function as dance/rehearsal studio and mini shop that will carry Blackout Beat music, clothing, art & books such as the A is for Authentic comic book by Marcos Garibay.  The dance studio will offer Zumba, Hip Hop, and latin dance classes with more to follow in the future.  “The dance studio aspect of Blackout is something I’ve been wanting to do for years.  It kind of takes our whole journey full circle and ties it back to our roots as dancers in our mother’s dance group.  In fact, 5 years ago before I left Pueblo for Denver it was my dream to open a recording studio that included a dance studio, store and coffee shop.  We are less than a month away from living that dream.  Its a very exciting time for us and I’m rising to the occasion like never before.  The future is now.”  Said Marcos Garibay.


Expect to see this item in the studio’s new mini shop.


Official Blackout Beat gear and AsteroidM clothing designed by Marcos will be available at the new studio.

Work on the studio’s new vocal booth and other studio workstations in order to have the new space up and running by the end of January.  Grand opening party info to come soon..
