In the heart of Memphis resides a world-class recording facility. Just minutes from Beale St. and The Peabody, House of Blues Recording Studios' spacious quarters house two complete studios outfitted to capture the spirit of all styles of music amidst the Delta's rich local heritage. Originally named "The Sounds of Memphis Studio" House of Blues carries on an over 25-year tradition of music-making history. Before taking on the moniker House of Blues, this historic location was established as Kiva Studios by Gary Belz and Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh. Belz is no stranger to creating memorable and lasting establishments. He is part owner of The Peabody Hotel and was in charge of its management and acclaimed restoration. The success of joint-ventured studio, Ocean Way Nashville was also due in large part to Gary's vision and expertise. As with all of Belz's endeavors, the imprint of quality, style and detail flourishes at HOB Memphis providing an outstanding creative environment.
