But as with any new business it takes time to build up a consistent clientele, and it take a consistent clientele to keep the lights on and the music going! After Only a short period of time having the keys to the building Mike and Tricia did a soft opening of the Studio but were made aware shortly after that there were some back utility bills and other issues including fire code laws that would soon possibly force them to close up shop, not to mention dealing with personal life issues including Losing there home, Mike losing his Father and Tricia more recently suffering with heart issues.
