Mu­si­cians toast Track­side’s big day

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
