Studio OTB | From Dream to Reality

Recently, On The Bus Productions has been blessed in having the opportunity to book several different regional bands. The amount of feedback we have received has also been overwhelming! The Bus Riders have been such a great support in coming to support the many bands that are coming from Sacramento, Grass Valley and even further away! The whole experience has been absolutely amazing!

Last week’s showcase completely blew the doors off of Studio OTB when we had “Dream In Red” come out and play. The band was cut short to only three of it’s members, but they rose to the occasion putting off a show that OTB Bus Riders will not soon forget! The band brought T-Shirts and sold one to almost every person in the crowd! The night’s showcase also featured long time friend and performing artist, “Brandy Robinson” This lady can bring any room to a true appreciation for the blues. With guttural vocals and guitar licks that keep moving, Brandy is one of OTB’s favorite local indie artists! We were extremely blessed to have her back!

The Underground Event is becoming quite the scene offering great indie music and a positive atmosphere that just about anyone finds refreshing. With old school ways and new school sounds, it’s bound to become one of Northern California’s hot spots for new artists to find exposure. Catering to the young and the old, this venue’s bringing on the heat like the music scene hasn’t seen in quite some time. Taking the indie artist out of the “bar scene” and placing them in an intimate environment to play for listeners who have full intention of hearing something new is how it used to be and what OTB is trying to re-create. This will be the next wave in the indie industry.

Hoping for a Christmas Miracle

OTB NEEDS YOUR HELP and SUPPORT!

For the past two years Garrett and I have done our very best to continue to provide a unique Indie Experience for the Bands and Musicians of our surrounding communities and venues. We strive to inspire Hopes and Dreams for musicians as well as small business owners. As most of you know, we charge small fees for VIP membership and Cover for Showcases and Events.

Unfortunately, we simply do not charge enough to cover our monthly expenses but we usually are able to cover those expenses out of pocket. We regret to say, the past few months have taken a financial toll on us and we need the communities support to help us keep the doors open!

We know how very important Studio OTB is to our members, our followers and to the Music Industry. We truly want to continue providing this studio experience to the community thru 2016 and hopefully for many more years to come. Our mission is to raise $1000 to cover our December Rent and our Past due Power Bills.

We have several items including gently used gear and studio equipment that we are putting up for Silent Auction due to our needs for funds to cover our expenses. We hope that you will find it in your heart to help us thru this season of hardship and help us keep our dream alive.

Join us and check out the gear! Maybe find a Christmas gift for yourself or a loved one! Supply your band with equipment or spare instruments.

Auction will commenced from 6pm to 8pm. Announcements of winning Bids will be announced at 830pm.

BYOB AND CHEER!

Thank you in advance for your support.

Bands Showcase | Studio Opens Doors

Studio OTB has become the newest and hottest hub in Auburn for small Indie musicians to find a limelight and course of action for promoting themselves. The dream was to bring the true passion of the indie artist to center stage and give hope that there is still a true “Music Industry” to take part in. Through the past year, On the Bus Productions has substantially grown. It now hosts a total of Four Annual Events a year as well as many small weekly and monthly events. Their passion and motto still ring true. “Present the Passion for the Music and the Dream will Never Die.”

One of the business’s main focuses has been for the weekly Friday night event purposely named “OTB Underground“. The ultimate goal was to build an environment where both musicians and listeners alike could come and gather in an intimate setting. The attention for this weekly occasion has caught the surrounding community’s eye immensily and is showing true progress in the audience. The untold mission was to cultivate an open and positive experience where all kinds of people could come and gather to encourage happiness, vitality and explore all the possibilities of music together. And that is exactly what is happening. “I like to think of this place as a sanctuary, a life church of some sorts. It’s just a place where you can really get away and feel good about yourself, your community and hear some really great music.” says Corrie Vallance, President of OTB. “I wanted to create a place where people can go just to feel good.”

Each Friday Night from 6pm to 11pm, On the Bus Productions’ studio staff equip the main floor with Guitar Amps, Bass Rigs, Drum Kits, Microphones, and even Keyboards. They furnish a comfy seating area for listeners to relax and enjoy the intimate show along with a full stage experience. The studio thumps with a full sound system that is clear and promotes dance fever and the stage lighting set-up makes you feel like your at the biggest rock show you’ve ever seen. And all this happens in their very quaint little studio comprised of about six-hundred square feet. The back porch of the studio offers outdoor seating for enjoying beautiful nor-cal evening weather. It is back set by a fenced field that offers a feeling of remote privacy right off of Highway 49 near Dry Creek Road. The music is always good and the people are always happy. The Studio encourages their followers to purchase memberships that allow them to pay a smaller cover for attending OTB Events. An Annual VIP Membership is only $25 and provides a 20% Discount on OTB Services, OTB Merchandise and gives right to a $2 Cover Charge instead of $5 Cover Charge for the weekly OTB Underground Events.

Recently the Friday night event has featured some new local bands that brought the attention of new followers. They have now decided to make this a regular thing by Showcasing bands every first and third Friday of every month. They are attentive to their small space but know that the more musicians they can gather, the happier the listeners will be. Some people come for the music, some for the energy, and some come to simply support small business. Either way they always have a good time. They will be offering Showcase Slots on a First Come, First Serve basis. They will also be offering the stage to many different types of artists, including spoken word, comedians, musicians, and others. They encourage the community to take a closer look at what’s happening here. Especially venue owners who are looking to book different acts for their venues. On the Bus Productions is a resource for finding good quality acts and enjoys setting the stage for anyone who is looking for exposure or some side money. “It’s a hard act to follow when you host the best acts in town” stated candidly by Corrie Vallance. “We want to share the wealth with our community.”
