It’s really sad that this place is closing it’s doors. This was the first place I ever recorded music with Far and years down the road the first place I started to learn how to engineer and record music. I most likely would not be doing what I do for a living if it were not for John Baccigaluppi & The Hangar. When Far broke up (for the first time), I considered going to school for audio engineering. After speaking with John about this, he was quick to say, “you don’t need school, you already know what you’re doing, but you don’t realize it yet”. After a couple scary sessions where I had to figure out problems on my own, I started to get the hang of it (with John on speed dial of course). A couple years later I started engineering & producing an album for my band The Revolution Smile. We started tracking on 24 track 2” tape. It was amazing. That record eventually led me to a record deal with Geffen. Since then I’ve gone on to have the time of my life writing, engineering, & producing with so many amazing bands and artists. I think to this day, I’ve thanked John Baccigaluppi on almost every record, even if nothing was done at The Hangar. This place is just as important as any musical thing that has ever come out of Sacramento. Thanks John.
