FRANCISCO STUDIOS

OUR STORY

Francisco Studios began as a one room experiment in Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco in 1976. Although we have expanded considerably since the early days, it’s still run the same way – as an unconventional family business catering to the needs of musicians. Musicians from all different walks of life practice in our spaces – young kids that have just gotten a band together for fun, experienced bands that are still trying to make it in the music business, established bands that just need a place to practice and store their stuff in between tours, drummers who are interested in woodshedding, and middle-aged professionals who have a passion for rocking out on the weekends.  Bands come and go (individual members lose jobs or relocate; bands break up), but fortunes turn, new bands are formed, and when they do, they often come back to practice with us.
