Houston’s music community came out in force to celebrate the grand opening of Wire Road Studios on July 31. After sipping on drinks and snacking on Texas-style appetizers, guests took a tour of the new Russ Berger Group–designed facility, which features two recording studios and a video editing suite. During the tour, three bands—Hazy Ray, Trucker’s Choice and Mantis—recorded in the live room. Evesborough Films, which works out of the Wire Road video editing suite, showcased its video production talent with a montage of its latest work, including music videos for hip-hop artists in the Wire Road family. The studio is now officially open and booking recording projects
