There is a massive resurgence in the popularity of analog music, and in particular vinyl records and the turntables to play them. Sales of vinyl records are sharply increasing every year, and pressing plants are opening all over the world to keep up with the demand.
The Mahwah Museum is celebrating these events by hosting a Vinyl Listening Party
event on Thursday, October 25, starting at 6:30pm.
This is your chance to see and hear for yourself what this resurgence is all about – to enjoy great-sounding music while relaxing and socializing with your neighbors in the unique environment of the museum.
The October 25 event will focus on Music Of New Jersey. Les Paul, The Four Seasons, Frank Sinatra, and a certain fellow from Asbury Park are just part of the program. There will be old and new music, spanning across multiple music genres. All the selections are coming from carefully selected vinyl pressings that are notable for their vintage and their outstanding sound quality.
This is a truly unique happening that will be a lot of fun and shouldn’t be missed! The museum is well chosen to co-host this event with Ray since it has on display, among other important artifacts, Les Paul lathe and his sound on sound machine. Participants in this event will be able to visit this exhibit and hear more about this amazing collection of artifacts.
Ray Ullmer, who will host this event, amid an amazing collection of Les Paul artifacts, has always been a huge music fan, and has been collecting albums in various formats since he was a teen. Throughout all that time, though, vinyl has always occupied a special place in his heart. When he recently upgraded his home system with a new turntable and speakers, he started the Cragmere Vinyl Club for like-minded music fans to play their favorite albums for each other.
