Huge Jazz Vinyl Sale @ Satellite Records! – 10/17/14


This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event!

You may have heard about the massive Jazz vinyl purchase we just did. 6000+ LPs from one collector! We’ve never seen this many good Jazz records in one place before and we probably never will again!

This Friday at 10am, we’re gonna have over 1000 of them priced and ready to fly. We’re setting up a temporary New Arrival space where all the goodies will be waiting.

This event is strictly first come, first served. We’re not cherry picking the collection at all! No one is allowed to hold records. Everyone gets a fair shot at this. Bring some dollars and be prepared to score some of the best vinyl you’ll ever see!

This collection is primarily all pre-1970. There are big names (Davis, Coltrane, Monk, Brubeck…), major labels (Blue Note, Riverside, Prestige, Columbia…) + smaller side men, obscurities and one offs. No Fusion!

After this Friday, you’ll continue to see some incredible Jazz new arrivals over the next few months as we continue to sort through the collection. Just don’t miss this first shot!

We couldn’t be more excited about tonight’s event! This has been in the works since before Satellite opened. The idea was partly inspired by watching the BBC Krautrock Documentary. In it they talked about how some of the major Krautrock were formed in a Coffee Shop / Club that hosted regular open jams and encouraged participants to go as “far out” as they wanted. We thought it would be cool to start a similar event in Kalamazoo. We want to see folks exploring, trying new things, meeting new people, starting new bands and breaking their pre-conceived musical limitations! If this event goes well, there are endless possibilities! If yr new to Kalamazoo, this could be a perfect way to get involved!

Here’s the basics:
Every 2nd and last Wednesday, local maverick Jarad “Saxsquatch” Selner will host an open jam. Each week he’ll put together a different house band ready to help steer the evening into uncharted territory. Anyone is welcome to join in regardless of instrument, age or skill level. No genre will be excluded, just stretched, warped and completely re-imagined!
Tonight will be inaugural Freakout. The house band consists of local heavyweights Jose Rincones (Anybody But The Cops, Surprise Attack, Rise Into Ruin) and Russell Wagner (The Reptilian, Forget The Times, Cape & Cowl)

Spectators are welcome too! There is no pressure to join the band if you just wanna watch.

Music starts at 8pm and ends at 10pm (or whenever the players stop)
This is a free event but there will be a donation box if yr feeling generous
Please, no alcohol / drugs / jerks (let’s keep it a safe space!)
Register will be open all night if you wanna buy some records
