On June 17, 2004, Chicago's music elite gathered at newly opened Pressure Point Recording for its grand opening party to welcome this hot new studio into the local pro audio community. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley stopped by early on for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, received a private tour and chatted about the Windy City's arts and entertainment communities.

Major label heads, hip hop/electronica artists and other invited guests were treated to a sushi dinner and other hors d' oeuvres while mingling away to the sounds of Howard Levy Band and DJ Maurice Joshua, who entertained the late-night crowd until 4 a.m.

“The grand-opening party to celebrate the opening of our A room was a smashing success,” enthused studio manager Chris Schneider. “With friends and artists from Chicago, as well as around the country in attendance including the mayor, made it a great night. We look forward to hits coming from Chicago and Pressure Point for years to come.”
