Marquee Records

13 Main St, Fl 2, Tarrytown; 914.631.3390

Marquee Records was founded amid the pandemic by Tarrytown Music Hall volunteer Greg Jacquin. It started when he was inclined to drive around Westchester and collect records from over 50 donors. Jacquin and his volunteers then put together two record sales, raising over $8,000 for the nonprofit Tarrytown Music Hall. Now, the record store, which is run completely by volunteers, sits above the music hall’s marquee.
