For the Record Vinyl Night Returns March 24th
Last year we debuted our For the Record Vinyl Nights as a little fun thing to do on Friday night tours. It started out with a lone record player and some vinyl and quickly transitioned into a team effort with my friend Tommy Easterling, and the collection of music grew exponentially.
I love it when things just happen organically. Tommy and Stephanie Easterling have been regulars at the brewery for a while but when vinyl night started they were there every Friday. Little did I know we had vinyl music in common. When I was forced to cancel playing records one Friday due to other obligations, Tommy stepped in and handled it like a boss. The next thing you know we’re setting up two players and trading off choices from each of our libraries. Stephanie also came on to work tours and it has been a great time. Our last vinyl night in 2016 was on December 30th and was a countdown theme. We decided to chill on the Friday nights for a bit because weather was cold and we needed a little break.
Now that it appears we are coming through the winter and warmer days are ahead we’re bringing back Vinyl Nights and hope you will plan to join in the fun. Fueled by beer and great music, vinyl night is your chance to be a part of the festivities. It seems everyone has a record or two lying around the house so we invite you to bring it to the tours and we’ll play it. There is one caveat. Since we theme each night your record needs to fit into that theme. Here are some examples of last years themes:
- Guitar Heroes
- #1 Hits
- Pink Floyd
- The Beatles
- Southern Rock
- Beach Music
- Gangsta Rap
- The Rolling Stones
- Hair Bands
So dust off those records and plan to spend Friday nights at Jailhouse with us enjoying old and new music on vinyl. Last year we gave out some beer to take home with you for participating. We’ll do that again this year but will be limiting it to one 12 oz bottle per person.
See you on the 24th!
