The Voice Tank opens in Farragut

Youngsters line up to the microphone to record a song as part of a birthday celebration at The Voice Tank at Concord Square shopping center off Kingston Pike, Farragut. The Farragut community has a new way to hold a party.

Darren Ellis and Scott Brantley have partnered to open The Voice Tank, a recording studio that focuses on parties.

The business, located in Suite 5 of Concord Square shopping center at 11000 Kingston Pike, where Pittsburgh Paints is situated, held its first party March 26.

“We looked around. We wanted a warehouse, industrial feel, and Kingston Pike and Farragut are a great place for this.” Ellis said.

The Voice Tank holds birthday, retirement and bachelorette parties, charitable and corporate events, weddings and other occasions. While it does not serve alcohol, event attendees can bring their own beverages, he said.

“We throw amazing, memorable birthday parties for children and adults,” Ellis said.
