Walking into Revival Records for the first time, one gets an overwhelming sense of community. It is a community of seekers, not only in the sense of finding the next great piece of nostalgia or favorite hit song, but seekers of ideas, movements and emotions, of like-minded ears and close friends. Old 45s hang from the ceiling as if to say those who enter have a common goal in preserving music and sharing it with others. The staff will share their favorite recent albums with you as if you are family, and the old phonograph player, displayed prominently on one shelf, is a reminder that what this store is selling goes beyond just goods. Revival Records is in the business of sharing the experience. Sifting through record crates and shelves, bringing a favorite album to the counter, and bringing it home to play for oneself and others is a timeless act that allows others to share their ideas within the Chippewa Valley community and beyond. Revival Records has created an atmosphere that promotes the sharing of the listening experience and feels like a lot more than a business— it feels like an extension of home.

Revival Records is the place to go in Eau Claire, Wisconsin for vintage vinyl, record players, music memorabilia, record supplies and much more.  New and used vinyl of every shape and color! (Although mostly round and black.) Located in downtown on Barstow Street along with many other great businesses.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
