Marquee Records

13 Main St, Floor 2, Tarrytown

Marquee Records was founded amid the pandemic by Tarrytown Music Hall volunteer Greg Jacquin. It started when he had the idea to drive around Westchester and collect records form over 50 donors. Jacquin and his volunteers then put together two record sales, raising over $8000 for the nonprofit Tarrytown Music Hall. Now, the record store, which is run completely by volunteers, sits above the music hall’s marquee.
