About The Record Parlour:
THE RECORD PARLOUR–a vintage vinyl shop and lifestyle store is–a unique place where artists and fans connect. THE RECORD PARLOUR provides a one-of-a-kind environment with an authentic vibe: as artists perform live, they’re surrounded by over 50,000 vinyl records, vintage stereo gear and music memorabilia. THE RECORD PARLOUR is owned and operated by founder Chris Honetschlaeger and manager/partner Chadwick Hemus. With Chris’ background in vintage equipment and Chadwick’s pedigree as a vinyl curator for Amoeba (Hollywood), sound and quality reign overall in performances and selection. They host performances and showcases with proper staging, an incredible sound system and HD video projection for music video premieres. By having only one artist perform per night, THE RECORD PARLOUR creates real connections giving artists time to hang out, visit with their fans and sell their music. This past month, THE RECORD PARLOUR added a third layer and equipped their control room with an Analog Record Lathe to capture and “cut” a band’s Live Performance to vinyl onsite to be distributed at a later date. Literally, artists can come down and play, cut a record on the record lathe, perform it that day to their fans and sell their records. THE RECORD PARLOUR showcases the entire vinyl experience from purchase, performances and production. THE RECORD PARLOUR’s vintage gear offerings–jukeboxes, amps, microphones, ’70s turn-tables and speakers– are refurbished to pristine condition alongside its vinyl collection which focuses on original releases verses new releases. By combining records and vintage equipment as well as creating a new home to music collecting and live music experiences, all in the heart of Hollywood, THE RECORD PARLOUR is more than a vinyl shop–it is ushering in the Hollywood renaissance. THE RECORD PARLOUR has a new music and cultural venue for Hollywood: THE AMERICANA LOUNGE, is set to open Spring 2016 around the corner from THE RECORD PARLOUR.

About Adopt the Arts:
Adopt the Arts was founded in 2013 by legendary drummer, Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, the Cult etc.), and mother-of-two, Abby Berman. The mission of the organization is to bring together well-known artists, public figures, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and the general public to save the Arts in America’s public schools. Numerous case studies indicate a critical developmental relationship between art and music education and academic achievement. Adopt the Arts believes that we all share a responsibility to invest in our future and ensure that our children are prepared to thrive in the demanding global environment of the 21st century, which is why the organization has been highly focused on bringing arts and music education to children at the elementary school level. Over the last 10 years, due to budget issues and leadership decisions, the LAUSD has systematically cut funding from its Arts Education Branch. For this past school year the district estimated that only 50% of elementary school students participated in some sort of arts or music instruction at school. The district also estimates that 80% of its student body lives at or below the poverty line. It is therefore a safe assumption that the vast majority of these children will not receive any art or music instruction outside of school. For two years, Adopt the Arts has been fostering a close working relationship with the Arts Education Branch of LAUSD and Superintendent, John Deasy, to find solutions to the current situation. ATA is also establishing strategic relationships with other not-for-profit organizations whose missions align closely and strategically in support of Arts education for children.
