Help us support Gramaphone Records

Gramaphone Records is a Chicago musical institution, a central hub of the city's dance music scene that's been in business more than 50 years. It's both a vital source of vinyl in Chicago and home to a community where so many of the city's DJs have paid their dues, whether as employees or just digging in the crates. Now Gramaphone needs our help.

Keeping the lights on at Gramaphone is costly, and with foot traffic eliminated during COVID-19 lockdown, the store is struggling to stay afloat.

In these challenging times, we need to band together with our community of friends, family, and fellow music lovers. Together, we can help ensure Gramaphone stays the home that we have all found it to be.

This GoFundMe was set up in Chicago by Garrett David, Adam Rowe, Colin Boardway, Alejandro Zarah, Glenna Fitch, Justin Mitchell, Sam Kern, Jacob Hopes, and Maddie Higgins; all of whom work for Gramaphone, with input from Michael Serafini, owner of Gramaphone. The money raised will be spent on the shop's rent and utility bills while Gramaphone is closed during the stay at home order. Once the money is raised we’ll be transferring all of it directly to the owner, Michael Serafini.

Thank you for your support!

In the meantime, you can still shop Gramaphone 24/7 at:
