Carnivalesque is the second project we’ve done at BobDog, and we couldn’t be happier. BobDog is a very comfortable studio, with all the instruments and digital functions you need to make your project want you want it to be.  Best of all, Bill is a pleasure to work with.  He’s not just an engineer, he’s a musician.  He has great ears, a sensitivity for where the music and the musicians want to go, and the technological expertise to get you there.”
