Have an amazing Pop Star Party with your friends at Born in a Barn Recording Studio, Warwickshire. Choose your favourite songs to record just like a real Pop Star.
First it's rehearsals to get the hang of it then a short break taking photos for the CD. You feast on a buffet whilst your single is produced then straight back in to make your Pop Video, try a solo then finish off in Club BB using lasers, smoke machine, strobes & spotlights.
The parties are designed for kids/youths aged around 8 - 18 really, although we have had older groups.
So what do we do?
When the Pop Star Party pals arrive then everyone gets to take a look around the premises and get used to the funky environment - and learn where the loo's are!!
Then as quickly as possible we either split the group or get everyone together, to sing the first song. This gets the nerves running on overdrive and usually gets the giggles pouring out of everyone.
Everyone grabs a set of headphones and stands in a circle around our special mic and we run the track.
After a couple of goes there is usually a good take and decisions get made as to what we do next depending on the plan as determined before hand with the planner/s.
At some point half way through the session the groups break from singing, put on silly hats(age not remotely dependent - everyone loves the hats) and the buffet is brought out and cake if that was ordered.
After filling everyone with even more excitement there's another shorter recording session and then the finished products are mixed and transferred to CD for the party leader/s.
Photos are taken throughout the day as a group, or in front of the main vocal mic and these are available afterwards.
Most importantly everyone has a great time and eats lots of fun food!!
Hope to see you and our party here soon.
All Born in a Barn recording studio Pop Star Party Pals will now receive a certificate for their successes behind the mic and the 'party' leader will receive a CD of the recording with their picture on - or a group picture if they like.
With 6 booked out this year already the experience has been improved yet again.
Last weekend on Saturday afternoon the studio was host to another Pop Star Party in Coventry but this time for a group of girls, from Solihull.
It was Ellie's 10th birthday and she was being treated by her wonderful parents to a studio experience with her friends. We had a small group of just 9 but they worked well and put 3 tracks down as planned and named themselves 'Popsicles'.
They quickly discovered the almost famous BB hat box so we had some fancy dress for a while also. A buffet was provided by BB whilst her Mum brought along a cake so everyone was well fed, which kept the mood high through to the end.

So Halloween came and went, but surprisingly even at the barn in Coventry we were 'trick or treated' (by the farmers son & his mates!) which was a surprise to the band Audio Narcotix from Rugby who were recording with me at the time and having their own party!
Next came Bonfire Night and most of my town turned out for the fire at the castle. Now that's an organised party if ever I saw one - fireworks, local radio station and countless stewards from the local round tables etc.
So whats next? - Christmas!!
Many of you in Coventry may want to organise a party for the festive fun season, so why not get your friends to have a Xmas Pop Star Party at the barn. Over recent weeks I have held them for a 21st birthday, 2 sisters having a reunion, some 11 year olds and have a group of 10 year olds in this saturday.
The Recording Experience is something a lot of people enjoy and you could turn an office party into a team building exercise by all learning the words and singing together. The possibilities (and indeed the laughs) are endless!
Gifts are priceless too and I have had a few older folk come along on the Gift package to record their favourite songs bought for them by relatives; mostly singing but often playing piano or guitar. This is the time of year to treat your friends and family to a Christmas gift they could perhaps only dream of, and let them have a day in our Coventry studio for free for Christmas!
"My son had his 11th birthday party here and they all (18 kids) said it was amazing. They had so much fun and could record whichever track they chose. Real pop stars in the making!" Nikki C - LeamSpa. www.borninabarnstudio.co.uk
