Yes, Jukeboxes have changed a lot in recent years and this is down to the fact that technology has changed but that takes nothing away from what a Jukebox really is. It is a masterpiece, a timeless piece of equipment that becomes the focal point of any room, whether it is a bar, a club or even at home. They still have that charm but why are they still a popular choice?
Choose your playlist
Everyone has their own taste in music but often, we never get share our tastes with people but with a Jukebox that is completely possible. Even today, people can make their selection and sit back and enjoy that beautiful four minutes in time, where everyone else has to listen to your favourite track. You almost get to create your own mini disco, where only you are invited.
You get to listen to different music
Yes, we have our own taste in music but sometimes it is good to drop your guard and allow yourself to enjoy what others enjoy. In fact, a jukebox can open you up to other types of music that you might not even have considered and that is what makes a jukebox so great. As it flips from on track to the next, you find yourself humming, tapping and singing away to the songs. A jukebox just a way of grabbing your attention and holding it there for minute after minute.
They bring people together
There is no doubt that music brings people together but a jukebox brings people together in a unique way. In groups, it is common to discuss what song you are going to pick next or how someone should pick a song that you like. That excitement that a jukebox creates has never gone away.
It makes you feel like you are stepping back in time
We all know how jukeboxes became a thing of the 50’s and 60’s. We all have images in our heads of how that used to look and feel but because many of us weren’t there, we feel as though we are taking a step back in time when we make our music selection on a jukebox.
Even a digital jukebox works
There are those that believe that jukeboxes are for records or discs only but we live in a new world and there is room for digital jukeboxes. You can never step away from the true identity of a jukebox but you can embrace the way in which it has evolved. People now have thousands of songs at their fingertips and all it takes is to drop a coin into the machine and they can choose any song they want. That element of choice is what makes modern digital jukeboxes so appealing but make no mistake, they certainly do not replace traditional jukeboxes.
UK Jukeboxes sell a wide range of digital jukeboxes, including the Steepletone CD Rock Zero 50 which enables you to record vinyl to USB or to Steepletone CD Rock One enabling you to listen to music via MP3, CD and radio.
