Downtown New London’s newest hot spot was hoppin’, spinnin’ and jammin’ on Thursday night as Daphne and Rich Martin hosted the Grand Opening of The Telegraph music store. Sean Murray spinned the tunes, local musicians performed, and LOTS of people drooled over the vinyl eye candy. While some marveled and reminisced over old Eagles and Styx albums, some sought out rarer finds like jazz fusion and extinct punk band offerings. Local CDs from the best of the area’s musicians were also on display.
Musical performance highlights included an acoustic rendition of the 1979 Robert John hit “Sad Eyes,” sung beautifully, while sitting on the floor, by Matt Potter. Sean Spellman from Quiet Life and Raquel Nasser performed Quiet Life's catchy "Big Green" to an attentive crowd. Ben Parent, John Fries, Matt Gouette, and two-thirds of the Red Hot Stove Tops also performed.
Downtown Investment/Development Coordinator Frank McLaughlin complimented the Martins on turning the space into a wonderful addition to New London, as he picked the last raffle winner of free vinyl goodies.
When asked how the opening was going, owner Daphne said, “It’s wonderful. I have a store full of happy rock-n-rollers!”
