Established in 2015, Vinyl Envy is an independent, vinyl record store as well as an all-ages live music venue with a capacity of 80.
In our store we stock both new and used vinyl records (10,000+Lps) in addition to a good selection of local vinyl/CD & cassette releases. Our musical tastes include indie rock, folk/blues, funk/soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae and electronic.
As a live music venue, we have hosted over 300 in-store events with music from across the globe, including Tasmania, London U.K. Portland, Baltimore, L.A. as well as every province/territory in Canada. For musicians who are looking to do “Release Parties”, we are a great option. As a band or solo artist etc, what better place to perform your new music than in front of a small crowd of friends and followers in a record store.
Since June of 2018, we have been co-curating "Blender Night" at Lucky Bar in Victoria as well as promoting larger events outside of our store under the umbrella Vinyl Envy Presents.
Every year we host a 2 day musical showcase known as “Psych and Soul Weekend” at The Roxy Theatre, a charming 200+ seat authentic movie house erected in the 1950’s. Friday night features four psych/rock acts, Saturday night is Soul night, with the influences of funk/soul/hiphop included in the lineup.
Our mission is to celebrate local talent whenever possible, but we also love playing host to touring bands passing through town. If you have a project or a private event that you'd like to talk to us about, please get in touch, we’d be happy to host you.
