We were able to set up sessions easily and Tynz made sure he always had time for me. We were able to get the recording done as efficiently and perfect as possible. Tynz did great making sure I gave my all in every song and explored different creative areas that I hadn't even thought of. The mixing and mastering of the project was better than I could've ever expected, I was so happy with the final product! This was my first professional project, and I couldn't of asked for anyone better to guide me towards making a masterpiece. District Entertainment is the go-to place for all your recording needs in Virginia! Thank you for such an amazing experience!"

"When you're building a brand, you want to know that the team you assemble can execute the vision. District Entertainment is that team. I've used their recording, production, event video, and photography services and can attest to the outstanding quality and commitment to excellence. In the past I used them to record my original music for RedSoul and produce limited recording. It was a wonderful experience working on that album project. Most recently I hired the District Entertainment team to video and photograph my Brewington Events | The Elevated Lifestyle poetry ( and beauty events ( I have repeatedly received compliments on the video quality and moments captured in photos. District Entertainment takes the time to not only listen to your project ideas, but also provide recommendations that can add value to your vision and enhance the final product. I plan on using them in the future!"

- Michelle (Aug 29, 2015)

"I received a Living Social voucher for time in the recording studio at District Entertainment as a gift last year.  Not only did they graciously work around my crazy retail work schedule and my racing schedule, but I had the most amazing experience possible.  I was a little nervous going in but Tynz was extremely personable and his calm, professional, and fun demeanor put me at ease and allowed me to have a lot of fun. Simply put, I had a blast! What made it an even better experience was that he puts the effort into knowing his craft and he is passionate about it. When somebody feels that strongly about what they do, it's not only contagious but you know that they will always be great at what they do. Thanks for a great experience!"

We brought in instrumentals and just sang over them...kind of like karaoke, but recorded. It was soooo much fun! Our engineer was Brian and our experience was just as great as the first when my son recorded his demo. Well worth the money. Well worth the time.”

– Gloria (March 24, 2013)


"I just took my 15-year old son here to record his first demo. They made him feel comfortable and really know how to work with first time artists. I've personally been to other studios and this is the most professional I've seen. Don't let the outside fool you as noted in another review. It's what is behind the door that matters, especially if you're the one who's putting out the album (you might want to tell your loved ones that if they're going to buy studio time as a gift). The sound quality is fantastic! The engineer, Tynz, was great! The studios were spacious and clean! We will DEFINITELY recommend others to work with District Entertainment"

- Trina (March 23, 2013)


“Everything about this experience was truly a blessing from beginning to end. True professionalism at it's best. My engineer Tynz was more than patient & polite while delivering us one of the proficient & productive studio sessions. I highly recommend DC Entertainment Studios for whatever your studio need are.”

– Byron (March 17, 2013)


“Thumbs up!”

– LivingSocial Customer (February 27, 2013)


"I thought this would be a great idea for a gift for a friend. I emailed the company and asked them if it was possible to purchase a gift card and they responded that it would not be a problem.  There were no special instructions in the email on how to purchase a gift card or any guidance and I thought nothing of it.
I called the number on their website on monday around two pm to make sure that they were open.  There was no answer, but I figured they were busy, so I headed to the address that is posted on their website to buy the gift card. I got to the building and there was assigned parking for all of the other businesses around, but them.  I ended up having to park on the street.  I walked into this old run down school building and was very scared for my safety.  The building was disgusting, smelled like urine, and was full of classrooms.  I finally found the tiny door -leading to god knows what, that had a cheap sign that said district entertainment.  It looked like a joke, nothing like a professional business, but more so like it was a grade school project. I tried to open the door and it was locked... There was no one in this sad little building for me to ask what the deal was with district entertainment.  I tried calling again with no answer so I left with no gift card.  I went home and emailed the company and they emailed me back and told me in this second email that I can simply purchase a gift card online through PayPal and they were very confused as to how I found out their location. I was very upset that this information was not conveyed to me in the first email when i could have saved so much time and gas.  I was offered a discount and given an apology but after seeing what a beat up, run down, rickety building this is located in, I wouldn't have my friend try to record his music there if they let him do it for free.  I can't imagine how anyone can have a great recording session with tons of students populating the building.  The decision is yours, but I would recommend finding a different venue with customer service reps who are competent and value your time."

“I have recorded with "engineers" all over the area. These guys are actual engineers, not just ProTools owners. If you want your sound to be accurate and clean, record here. Clean environment, no interuptions, professional. I'm impressed.”

“Nice guys. Small operation but very very professional and pleasant. Would definitely refer folks.”

- Marlene (January 21, 2013)


“If you are considering recording some music, DE might be the best option in the DMV. I have recorded in Bethesda, DC, and Reston, but the highest quality tracks came from Gizzmo at District Entertainment. Tynz and the crew are smooth and professional, and I really recommend that you pay their studio a visit.”

– David (January 20, 2013)


“It has been such a pleasure working with Tynz of District Entertainment on recording my second album. They provide nothing but quality work. They are professional, accommodating, affordable and authentic. Thank you so much for an amazing project.”

– Nisha (October 11, 2012)


“My niece...had so much fun! The people at District Entertainment were very patient with the girls and made my niece's birthday memorable by helping them feel comfortable in the studio setting. I thought it would be a cheesy kareoke set up, but it's a real recording studio."

– Niki (August 5, 2012)


“I recorded my demo at District Entertainment a few months ago. By far Tynz and his group are the best around, in every aspect of music and business. They actually care about making my music sound good and have done a fantastic job with the mix. I've gotten more compliments on my one song I recorded here than I have on any other of my songs I recorded elsewhere. I had an excellent experience and will absolutely go back. They are professional, down to earth and very easy to work with....and their rates are very reasonable. I highly recommend District Entertainment. It's no wonder why they were voted Best Recording Studio in DC by the readers of Washington City Paper.  They don't do much advertising and have stayed in business for about 7 years because their clients all have come through word-of-mouth and I decided to write this review.”

– Celeste (August 4, 2012)
