NOW: The South Bend Record Show returns for its first event of 2024

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The South Bend Record Show returns for its first event of 2024.

Owner and event organizer Jeremy Bonfiglio says it’ll be a new wave of nostalgia.

“It'll rekindle some memories; it'll just be a treasure piece in their collection and you're able to help provide that for them. That's one of the things I love about running the show,” Bonfiglio said.

Nearly 40 vendors from all over the Midwest will be spread across 94 booths offering a wide range of products such as CDs, vinyl releases, vintage stereo equipment, cassettes, t-shirts, record supplies, and more.

According to Bonfiglio, all music genres will be represented like classic rock, pop, metal, jazz, blues, R &B and country.

“It's one of those events that is just for people who just love music, and who have always loved a physical media, whether that's vinyl record, or CD, or cassettes, or whatever. It’s a place where you can kind of gather with likeminded folks, you know, hunt down some music that maybe you missed in your collection,” Bonfiglio said.

The general admission fee is $2, and it starts at 11 a.m. at the Gillespie Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Inn, early entry is at 9 a.m. and costs $7.

Bonfiglio says this is the first show of six as the next show will take place in April.

“It's an experience to come. There's a lot of camaraderie there. Many people are there to tell stories and swap stories about music, talk music, dig into the crates and find music they've been looking for a long time or if they're getting into it for the first time. It's a great place to start your collection. It's really a spot to come. Celebrate music, bring some music home with you to listen and are able to get us through winter,” Bonfiglio said.
