About Us


Mission Statement:

The Lower East Side has changed quite a bit since 1988 when we first opened in the heyday of CBGB, Pyramid Club and Max Fish, but our commitment remains unchanged. Our mission is to provide Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, New Jersey and global touring musicians with the equipment and space they need to make their bands succeed, or at least just have a good time offering studio rental space in NYC at a price they can afford.

We take pride in ensuring the equipment we offer is well maintained and genuinely the type of gear we’d want to play and record on. Join bands like Snake Canyon, New York Junk, The Threads, Jane Lee Hooker, Animal Reporters & other national and locally renowned bands that have practiced here at Rivington Music. Whether you’re a rock band, a jazz trio or a 7-piece ska band, we've got the practice rooms and gear you need to make it happen.


Our History:

Our studios are owned and operated by lifelong music aficionado and professional audio engineer Fred Tenny.
