Thomas Edison National Historical Park welcomes the award-winning male acapella quartet, Gimme Four, from West Caldwell, New Jersey.  Attendees will witness a live recording session, as Gimme Four sings into an antique, spring-motor Edison wax cylinder phonograph. With no microphones or electricity, a large acoustical horn is used to focus sound vibrations onto a diaphragm and small knife, which cuts an audio groove into the wax record.
