A few turntables, some dusted off classic records, a bit of booze, and you have yourself a good old-fashioned party! This past May, we went to the Vauxhall Ballroom at Denver’s Ramble Hotel for a night of music, film, and luminous fun. Record club Vinyl Me, Please paired with the hotel for a musically inspired event called “The Spins: Classics at Vauxhall,” and we could not have been more thrilled to partake in an event of such class and tastefully artistic drive!
A Musical Membership
Vinyl Me, Please is, indeed, a vinyl record club with a member, magazine, and Record of the Month tradition! While the modern day person might be letting the thought of spinning records and gritty tunes drift far from their memory, these people at Vinyl Me, Please are keeping the life of records alive! Their mission is to remind the public of the power of vinyl records and its influence on cinema, art, and life in popular culture. They even are traveling the U.S. to “find the best record store in every state”!
A Night of Classical Culture
The record club brought the equipment while the Ramble Hotel provided a perfect space for this classically-themed event. Twisted wall bulbs and whiskey glasses and metal chairs made this venue a most customary, comfortable experience for the audience. The musical theme of the night was “classics,” so it’s no surprise that artists like Miles Davis and John Coltrane echoed off the walls.
In addition to tunes and turntables and old movies, many made speeches and shared comments about the art, the experience, and the club. The event hosted the perfect combination of laughter, emotion, passion, and honor, and we were humbled and excited to be a part of it! Thank you to Vinyl Me, Please and the Ramble Hotel for including us. The art of the vinyl record is not dead as many might assume. In fact, it is very much alive and thriving today!
