THE RUMPROLLER ORGAN TRIO.
The newest and most distinguished record store to open up in Los Angeles, THE RECORD PARLOUR–in the heart of Hollywood–offers a unique live music experience. This coming weekend, August 15-16, THE RECORD PARLOUR will celebrate its two-year anniversary celebration. Starting Saturday, Aug.15 and Sunday, Aug. 16 at 10:30AM the “Tower Records Collection” will be unveiled. Attendees can rummage through decades of an eclectic collection featuring both rare Rock finds and thousands of Jazz and Blues albums from a former Tower Records employee’s carefully, curated collection.
On Saturday from 6:00-9:00pm The Rumproller Organ Trio will thrill the crowds. While many of today’s music performances incorporate laptops, digital keyboards and backing tracks, Rumproller insists on rolling out the 450-pound Hammond organ for their shows. The visual is mesmerizing: one person at the helm operates pedals with both feet; the hands flick knobs, push and pull levers, all while keeping the music swinging and the heads in the room bobbing up and down. It’s like watching someone operate an airplane, tractor or piece of heavy machinery from the past. B3 virtuoso, Ty Bailie, is at the controls of the organ when he is not on the road with Katy Perry. James Achor, founding member of 90’s swing revival kings, Royal Crown Review, is on guitar while groove master (and the group’s founder), Kevin Stevens, is on the drums.
THE RECORD PARLOUR provides a one-of-a-kind environment with an authentic vibe: as artists perform live, they’re surrounded by over 30,000 vinyl records, vintage stereo gear and music memorabilia. THE RECORD PARLOUR–a vintage vinyl shop and lifestyle store is–a unique place where artists and fans connect. With over 30,000 vinyl records under one roof, 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 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 the original Amoeba (San Francisco), sound and quality reign overall in performances and selection. 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, set to open this December around the corner from THE RECORD PARLOUR.
