It may be a while since the last time you bought some vinyl, but on Saturday nearly 100 people gathered at a local record store for a special concert.

English rock band, the Zombies, performed several songs for a packed crowd at the Plan9 Music store in the Seminole Square shopping center.

This was all for the national Record Store Day that raises awareness for small record stores in the area.

The owner Plan9 Music says he was happy to see so many people come out to hear good music.

"This is a celebration of independent record stores that have been a core part of the music community in their areas," says Jim Bland. "A lot of independent and major labels put out limited release vinyl for record store day."

This is the seventh year that plan nine has celebrated national record store day.
