Musicians toast Trackside’s big day
MUSICIANS helped celebrate the 21st birthday of a recording studio.
Ally Dickaty from The Virginmarys, Sophie Stock, Age against the Machine, Darragh Burke + friends and Apollo Dawn helped mark the anniversary of Trackside Studios in Macclesfied at MASH Guru.
Trackside started in 1994 when Alan Bailey set up a rehearsal space for his band at an old mill on Crompton Road.
Very soon other bands starting using the room, including his son Stuart.
The venue expanded and ran for 12 years until the building was sold and Trackside relocated to Elizabeth Street.
Trackside Music School was born and expanded to three rehearsal rooms.
It now boasts more than 200 students studying guitar, drums, bass and vocals. Stuart Bailey said: “Me and my father Alan would like to thank not only everybody for attending the celebration, which featured lots of Macclesfield’s finest musicians, but we also want to thank all our customers past and present for helping Trackside provide a service to the Macclesfield music scene.”
