“The only truth is music” –Jack Kerouac
There was a whole lot of truth being shared Saturday, as musicians, fans, and organizers, all came together to make music at The Spot on Kirk in support of Community High School and the upcoming National Record Store Day. It was inspiring and humbling to be a part of an event in which so many people donated their time and craft.
The bands were at the very heart of making this event such a joyful experience! The Community High School Performance Band, Groova Scape, GOTE, Blue Mule, and M.C.Broom & the Jam all gave incredible performances which kept the whole place grooving throughout the day.
Photographer Meagan Reynolds was there to capture some of the musical truth and joy being shared so freely. These photos are just a sample of her great work. You can find more photos from the event on her Facebook page.
While the proceeds from the event and raffle will be donated to the CHS band program, the ultimate intent of the event was to generate some exposure and enthusiasm for this year’s National Record Store Day. Record Store Day is for those who love vinyl records and the independent record store. There are special vinyl and CD releases as well as various promotional products available exclusively for the day and includes artists from every genre and price point.
So, we hope you’ll come out this Saturday, April 22nd to The Vintage Vault Records & Pop Culture Collectibles to support our local event. If you are outside our area, you can find a list of participating shops at the RSD website.
Thank you again to all the participants and sponsors without whom this event would not have been possible!
Peace, Love, and MUSIC!
