Fascinating Rhythm

Our Story
Fascinating Rhythm has been Nanaimo’s premier independent music shop since 1988, and we were proudly selected as one of the late, great Stuart McLean’s (host of the CBC’s Vinyl Cafe) top five record stores in all of Canada.

We buy, sell, and trade new and used records, CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays; video games and consoles; books, posters, stereo equipment and memorabilia.

In addition to the new stock we put on sale daily, we are also able to place customer orders individually. So, should be there be an item your heart desires that you’ve had no luck tracking down, if our suppliers carry it or can obtain it for us, we can get it for you upon receipt of a deposit.

We are able to sell local bands’ and artists’ albums on consignment, so if you’ve made a record (or CD, of course) that you’d like to have on our shelves, let us know. We also serve as a ticket vendor, should there be an event you’re putting on and need a ticket outlet.

We are open to feedback, so please let us know if there’s something you’d like to see in our shop, or anything at all you’d like to suggest!
