What does being Approved by SAG Mean?

TravSonic Studios is currently an approved SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild) Audio House in St. Louis which is in compliance with safety protocols for audio recording and production. Our facility is Approved to host SAG members for in-studio recording sessions.

During the pandemic, many production studios for audio and film closed temporarily or had to implement strict restrictions for COVID procedures. TravSonic was the first and only few audio studios in Missouri to pass SAG’s approved audio house procedures.

TravSonic Studios has passed SAG’s health and safety standards which are thorough. We are proud to have met the high safety standards and to serve the St. Louis chapter of SAG for audio recording.

It was a jam-packed and collaborative evening at the Medici MediaSpace open house on March 12th in St. Louis, MO. All the studios, offices, and business professionals opened their doors to showcase the vast services the facility has to offer with abundant talent. 

The open house did not only showcase the staff and members, but it also contributed to showcasing great local businesses that catered to the event such as restaurants, beverage service, and much more. Bobbo’s Tocos offered a great fusion taste-bud treat for the event to launch the brand taste test.

A business card raffle was held to give away a one-month membership allowing individuals to experience all services and amenities.

TravSonic recorded the finals of the 2010 “Walk the Plank” competition. 95 comedians entered the year contest and 1st place tied close with Kevin Munroe & Tim Dufrisne, 2nd Place Sam Davidoff and 3rd Place Jules Posner.

Hosted by the Godfather of Bay Area Comedy Tony Sparks, this night was filled with great comics, laughs and food.



TravSonic recorded Robert Duchaine at the Punchline in San Francisco December 7th and 8th for his upcoming live CD ‘Offensive…And Not In A Good Way’.

Bio

Robert Duchaine is a surly misanthrope. His sarcastic social commentary pokes fun at a myriad of topics including race, religion, and relationships.

He’s been kicked out of every organization he was ever forced to join, from the Cub Scouts to the U.S. Army, and fired from every job he ever finagled. Robert finally found a refuge where he can make his own rules – the stand-up comedy stage.

Now an established national touring headliner, Robert performs regularly in Las Vegas show rooms, colleges, comedy clubs and concert venues. Duchaine is also involved in avant-garde theater and independent film. Robert’s unique perspective fuels an act that pushes the envelope. Duchaine is candid, entertaining, and always hilarious!

TravSonic recorded stand up comic Kevin Shea at the San Francisco Punchline Comedy Club August 30, 2010 for his new comedy CD.  It was a full house and laughs just kept coming.  Reggie Steele also opened the night for Kevin.

The CD is now out titled “I Like to Cuddle” which is now on itunes.  Click Here
