The Fallout Shelter Studios

The Fallout Shelter is a fully functioning television and recording studio with a built in cabaret style performance space. There is seating for 100, creating one of the most intimate and personal music experiences in all of New England. As part of the GRCPAC mission, performances in the Fallout Shelter, as hosts of The Extended Play Sessions, are both entertaining and educational . Each performance is followed by an extensive interview giving the artists an opportunity to tell their own story in their own words as well as give historic perspectives about their music, it's origins and influences.

Performances at the Fallout Shelter Studios are filmed, recorded and broadcast live with multiple camera angles. When a person attends a performance here, they are coming to watch the production of a television show called The Extended Play Sessions. They get to interact with the artists and view a 'behind the scenes look' at a recording session and live broadcast production.

There is an extensive library of music and film in the Fallout Shelter Greg Trooper Library that is available for the community to enjoy. There is also a beer and wine bar available during performances. A beautiful Green Room makes the artists feel comforted and cared for.

Use of The Fallout Shelter has been donated for performances by musicians of all ages The School of Rock in Norwood and is available for schools and programs in need of a 'real world' performance opportunity.

The Fallout Shelter has been used for many private and corporate events and is available for rental. Just contact us through the CONTACT page and we will get back to you within a day.
