The following sessions at Chicago Recording Company were in support of Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation. Director Steven Soderbergh and producer Jerry Weintraub transformed Studio 4 to shoot scenes for the upcoming film Ocean's Twelve. Actors Don Cheadle and Andy Garcia starred in the scene, while engineers Dennis Tousana and Mat Lejeune had their 30 seconds of fame as extras in the scene.

Engineer Chris Shepard and assistant Davey Rieley packed up the mobile rig and headed to Mississippi for 3 weeks to record a new record with Elvis Costello and producer Dennis Herring. Costello's recorded is slated for release later this year. Chris Steinmetz has been producing and recording songs with the Chicago rock band the Musical Outfits in Studio 5; Todd Brodie assisted. Britney Spears and her band were in Studio 4 for a long weekend, working on some new songs with engineer Jeff Lane and assistants Derek Downing and Azuolas Sinkevicius. Chris Sabold recorded an album with trumpeter Rob Parton and his 18-piece Big Band; Mike Pierce assisted. Steve Weeder and Stuart Holverson loaded the mobile rig into the Legendary Chess Records to record Styx, featuring various Chicago blues legends.
