Rock Island, IL 61201
The Horseshack in downtown Rock Island is quite an unconventional platform for upcoming local and national independent bands. Adopted by the website Daytrotter.com as their recording studio in 2006, this state-of-the-art studio has hosted the recordings of more than 2000 sessions by various indie bands. During the sessions, each band records four songs which are then available for downloads and live streaming on the website on payment of a small fee. The list of artists/ bands who have recorded their songs here is endless and growing as the days go by. And if you want to witness these sessions in progress, then you can walk down to the studio and watch the bands record their songs. A unique concept, indeed!
