STANDARD Motorcycle is home to, well, everyone that comes through the garage doors. We aim to unite all of these creative parties in a comfortable, safe and engaging atmosphere built on music, moto and a little bit of magic. Exit 86 is the brainchild of NJ riff witch Marguerite King and SMC Founder, Jason Paul Michaels.
Both were separate transplants to the city of Orlando, and both found sanctuary and freedom through the many, many music based events held here at SMC. King, being a full-time gigging musician, found it absolutely terrifying that there were virtually no shared practice spaces for bands in the Orlando area. The two decided to team up and build a studio for rehearsal and recording to foster the burgeoning live music scene, giving all musicians a place to play - and, sometimes, a place to stay.
Built by and for musicians, Exit 86 offers a private, exclusive rehearsal studio for any genre and any band as one of a few, resident STANDARD artist’s. The extensive backline features vintage tube amps, boutique effects pedals for experimentation, unlikely electric guitars and reliable studio standards. E86 is housed within the STANDARD complex in Orlando, FL and accessible through membership booking 24 hours, 7 days a week.
