  • "I'd like to say that we (DEVO) had a great experience at FORT KNOX & ICON STUDIOS. The facility is very impressive, the ability to do everything we needed in a pro setting, the access to everything, and an incredibly helpful staff made the entire experience fantastic for us, and I look forward to getting back there again. After touring the extent of the facility and seeing the expansion that is currently going on, I'm very psyched to see what the future holds for them!"

  • "Why would I recommend Fort Knox? They have put in the time to do things right. The facility is quality, the rooms are treated properly, gear repair is on site, and they are continuing to push the standards of quality higher. If you're a garage band, touring band, producer, engineer, film crew, you name it! They have something for everyone. This is an extremely qualified and professional group."

  • "I have had the pleasure of rehearsing and also doing a video at Fort Knox Studios in Chicago. I have rehearsed and visited rehearsal facilities all over the world and Fort Knox is at the top. Besides the sheer size of the facility, the quality of the facility and the equipment they provide is unparalleled. The most important part to me is their attitude to be extremely helpful and provide whatever is necessary to have your session meet your expectations. You need to see this place!!!!"
