About FK Studios
FK Studios was founded by Chicago musician, John Detjen. John spent time touring the US and South America -- with residencies in Chicago, New York City, Argentina, and Los Angeles where he worked with the esteemed Joey Waronker to further develop his rhythmic regiments, various compositions, and production capabilities.
I highly recommend this experience if you’re thinking about it! I booked very last minute and he replied and squeezed me on short notice. I am a trained classical musician and was on a short trip to Chicago (without my instrument on me) and wanted to try something different or out of my typically zone musically before dinner. Went in as a novice and learned quite a bit in such a short time because John was GREAT at answering any and all questions. Multiple times that I had no idea what I was doing (lol) and he carried the session and helped me find easy ways to jump back in musically. Your only limit here your creativity and willingness to experiment! Have fun!
john is welcoming, knowledgeable and experienced. he helped me to feel at home and walked me through the options and possibilities for our session. would certainly go back!
John is an awesome dude and super talented/knowledgeable. I have some experience playing guitar and drums, but even if you didn't have any, I imagine he'd make it an easy and comfortable experience. Highly recommend!
John was great! I asked if he would be willing to work with my 15 year old son who has a passion for music but is just getting started. John was friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and complimentary. My son thanked me profusely for this experience; he got so much out of it and a song to take with him as well. I highly recommend this experience!
You will leave relaxed and inspired.
I really enjoyed jamming with John. Once you arrive at his studio, it's go time. We get right to it. I play guitar, but even a non-musician would be in good hands. He guides the session and has his hand on the wheel, so to speak. I didn't come prepared with a song or anything, but in just a few minutes, we were making new songs! Hard to explain in words, you'll just have to experience it yourself.
John is a very fun musician to jam with and really enjoys working with you. Definitely recommend!
John is a very humble and easy-going musician, I had a blast. He’ll walk you through the process of a making a song, take your idea and turn it up to 11. No matter if you ever had a musical experience or not. Definitely coming back and recommend it to everyone!
Great experience! John has a great set up and it's a fantastic time.
It was an incredible experience, I highly recommend the jam session. It isn't every day you get to roll into a recording studio, especially if you don't have any bandmates in the city you're visiting. We were so lucky and got a vocalist jump in on our session, and it made the experience all that much more fun. Even if you don't play any instrument, there are electronic boards in the studio and other percussion instruments that can still keep you involved. Good vibes abide.
