About Firehouse 12:
Firehouse 12 is an award-winning full-service bar, state-of-the-art recording studio and unusually intimate performance space located in New Haven’s historic Ninth Square District. Painstakingly renovated over the course of four years by owner/producer/engineer Nick Lloyd and Gray Organschi Architecture, this once-abandoned firehouse building has become a major part of New Haven’s cultural renaissance since opening its doors in April 2005. It has also quickly gained a reputation as one of the premier recording studios and creative music venues on the East Coast.
A 2006 Best Studio Design Project nominee for the prestigious Technical Excellence and Creativity (TEC) Awards (http://www.mixfoundation.org/tec.html), the recording studio features world-class acoustic design by renowned acoustician John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group. The striking 1200-square foot space features a Steinway concert grand piano, and doubles as an 80-seat public venue with unparalleled technical possibilities for some of the most respected names in creative music. Past performers include Han Bennink, Tim Berne, Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra, Joe McPhee, Joe Morris, William Parker and Mario Pavone among many others.
In a June 2005 feature, New Haven Independent’s Regina DeAngelo called Firehouse 12 “a north star in the jazz firmament that might well guide music lovers to New Haven from far away.” She went on to write, “fabric-covered walls are angled to urge music to flow, not bounce, through a womb-like space. It’s almost like sitting in the hull of an instrument. Luckily, the Firehouse attracts people who bring near-religious reverence to the music, producing an exchange of energy that often fires great performances.” James Keepnews of the New Haven Advocate echoed DeAngelo’s praise, calling the venue a “remarkable new cultural outpost” and “a resounding success.” Yale University’s Associate Vice President of New Haven and State Affairs Michael Morand recently called the space “a wonderful addition to New Haven’s role as the cultural capital of Connecticut.”
