The latest issue of Town Center News revolves around the theme of music. It highlights how musical events, such as community concerts and festivals, bring people to our towns and county. It also focuses on how Montgomery County is a home to a unique musical partnership between two forward-thinking companies: RetroLinear, Inc. and the Electronic Music Education and Preservation Project (EMEAPP). RetroLinear, located in North Wales, fixes old electronic musical instruments and has done work on equipment for artists as varied as Norah Jones, Harry Connick Jr., Elvis Costello, and Philadelphia’s own D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the War on Drugs. RetroLinear has an affiliation with EMEAPP, which is located not too far from the Kulpsville interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. EMEAPP has assembled a vast collection of amplifiers, effects pedals, guitars, synthesizers, and much more. Many of the items in this collection are rare, prototypes, or literally one-of-a-kind. If you’d like to see some of these instruments up close, check out the current exhibition, Play it Loud, at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
