Tom and I opened the first store in the Spring of 2018 and the second location in the Fall of 2020. Here is a little history!
TOM LOUNGES' RECORD BIN is a unique record shop located in Northwest Indiana. We have two locations - Hobart & Michigan City, IN -- which carry new and pre-loved vinyl, Audio-Technica turntables, crystals, t-shirts, CD's, Cassettes, coffee mugs, and other pop culture items, Black Squirrel Crossing Guitar pick Jewlery, and collectibles.
The store was founded in 2018 in Hobart, Indiana by Tom Lounges, who brings to the business over 40 years experience in various aspects of the music business -- as a radio and television broadcaster, print journalist, artist agent and manager, record label annotator, publicist, and event producer.
He also brings many years of knowledge in running vinyl record stores, having spent years working in such popular Midwest record retail chains as Hegewsich Records and Woodmar Records, along with his debut in the vinyl retail world managing the fledgling single store location of Highland Records in 1977.
Both stores feature a great atmosphere that reflects Tom's career. The Michigan City location features a stage and house sound where "open mic" performances, concerts and other special "After Hours" events are held. The Hobart location features many personal artifacts from Tom 's career that each carry some sort of story behind them. Sorry, those are not for sale!
Tom Lounges Record Bin has been the site of the taping/making of live music videos by various artists, a national documentary taping done by the Hard Rock Cafe & Casino organization, and it has been the topic of feature articles in both local and national publications.
The store's slogan is "Where the cool kids go!" because one never knows what celebrity might pop in on any given day. See this site's "Gallery" page for some of those celeb images! You can be a "cool kid" too... just shop at The Bin where we are always happy to help and to talk about music with our patrons.
Drop us a line and let us know what your musical needs are and we will get back to you within 24 hours. We appreciate your interest in our business. Tom has over forty years in the music world. He will be happy to pair the perfect artist or artists with your event!
