Childhood friends Tom Augusta (l) and Kevin Braga recently opened Whatever Studios, a recording/rehearsal facility on Kelly Hill in Hayward, Calif. Equipment includes Pro Tools MIX|24; Allen & Heath GS3V mixer; Event Electronics, NHT Pro and Renkus Heinz monitors (with sub and floor wedges for live rehearsal); MIDI network with Korg and Roland synths; Mesa Boogie, Ampeg and Gallien Krueger bass and guitar amps; and an assortment of mics. In between working with outside clients, the duo is recording their self-titled album, Weird.

“We’ve always liked new and unusual music and have always wanted our own studio,” says Augusta. Sure, whatever. For details on their official launch event, visit www.whateverstudios.com.
