Vinyl Show turns Ore Dock Brewery into record shop

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The music-lover's marathon continues all day and all night Sunday in day four of the Ore Dock Vinyl Show.

Northern Michigan University's Vinyl Record Club is sponsoring the 21st semi-annual show which has been going on since Thursday afternoon.

Patrons can shop thousands upon thousands of records, cassette tapes, CDs, T-shirts, posters, stickers, memorabilia and more.

From Avant-Garde to Zydeco, whatever your taste, you're sure to find something worth the picking up. You might also score something for a friend.

Geoff Walker is one of the organizers of the show. He says it's a great way to socialize, talk about music over your favorite beverage. With a little luck, you might get your hands on that rare item you've been searching for for years.

“One of my favorite experiences is to have somebody pull out a record that makes them excited where they gasp and say ‘oh I can't believe you have this.’ It's really fun for us and yeah, we do turn the Ore Dock into a record store,” Walker declared.

Several live bands brought the music to life with live performances all Sunday evening.

The Vinyl Show is free and continues all day and all night Memorial Day at the Ore Dock Brewery in Marquette. Walker says that's your last chance to pick up your summer vinyl until the Show returns to the Ore Dock in August.
