On January 17 music fans gathered at the Denver Design Center to celebrate a historic recording studio. The occasion offered a first-look at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ exhibition for the upcoming Caribou Ranch and Recording Studio Memorabilia Auction. Guests were able to interact with the music, ranch property, instruments and artists that engrained Caribou into music history.

The exhibition is now open to the public, and property will be sold on January 24.

Over 350 guests were in attendance on opening night. Caribou’s founder and famed producer James Guercio celebrated with wife Lucy and their three children: Kate, Will and Peter. The family looks forward to carrying on the Caribou legacy as the ranch will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and commemorated in a Red Rocks Amphitheater exhibition.
