Showing Some Backbone

A local music store books local, national — and intergalactic — bands.

"There aren't many all-ages venues around here, especially ones that cater to certain styles of music," Nunzio said. "We can get into broader genres because it's not based on alcohol sales. There's not a lot of money in this anyway. It's definitely a labor of love."

And what Nunzio really loves is selling records — you know, those big slabs of vinyl that were once the format. But even CDs are becoming passé nowadays (damned iTunes). Nunzio's well are of that.

"Vinyl is big for us. It tends to draw folks who are into a wider range of music, not just what's on the radio," Nunzio said. "The cool thing is that since we're one of the few places that sells vinyl, it brings in music lovers from north Broward to West Palm."

Oh, and don't forget Backbone's newest market — Venus. It sure beats going to Disney World.
