Ivy Arch Studios


The JBBH project are in need of a female backing vocalist. If you're familiar with Joe Bonamassa & Beth Hart then you'll know just how good this music is. We're currently rehearsing regularly in worthing with a full line up including a brass section. We need someone who can sing the upper harmonies so prefferably someone in the Alto/Soprano range. Previous experience in a band is not neccessary as long as you can stay in tune and harmonise. For more information please either drop me a message or reply to this post.

Ivy Arch Studios has been Derech’s life since it opened in 2005 but today he’s taking the Time Machine back to his many previous musical incarnations.

Matter of fact I learned about you from a new friend Bassist Nigel Ball whom I just met the other night in Cleveland while he's touring with one of my dear friends Bex Marshall.
Here's a news story about an amazing program transforming the lives of young musicians that I helped establish in my hometown connecting local High School band & choir students with people living with Dementia.
We're spreading this around the world.

We are now taking bookings for rehearsal and recording sessions from 3rd May for professional or semi-pro bands and artists that have gigs lined up.


Hello everyone. As some of you may know already, we are now currently doing solo and single household bookings only at this time until May 17th where restrictions should be hopefully lifted by then. Feel free to book your slot, and see you soon!


We tried to find a way, but now have our answer from the Council. Unfortunately, there can be no mixed household sessions until permitted, which we hope will be in May. Apologies to all; we tried our best.


As it stands at the moment, we have permission to allow people alone and those of the same household, but are endeavouring to get a solution for mixed. Fingers crossed.


It's good news week! The Environment Agency has confirmed we can open 12 April !!!


Fingers crossed we'll be opening on 12 April. We're waiting for Council permission to re-open. If not then it'll be 17 May alas. We should know sometime next week. One thing we'll need for your session is verification (verbal at least) of your forming the necessary bubble with those in your group beforehand. Looking forward to once more hearing those heavenly noises you call music 😁


We've had many queries about re-opening; obviously we wish we could open. Apparently there may be an exception if we can obtain permission to do so. That is for Musician Union members only, i.e. only those with current membership cards can come in for a session, and that must be for an upcoming event. We don't make the rules, but have to abide by them or get fined Β£10,000. But don't lose hope - we'll open as soon as we're allowed to.


Happy to announce we will be back open on Wednesday 2nd December. Please call to confirm bookings.
