The day before Thanksgiving is traditionally the busiest bar night of the year as families and friends gather to reconnect over drinks and load up the jukebox with their favorite songs. Coincidentally, the inaugural celebration of National Jukebox Day lands on November 23, the anniversary of the date the first coin-operated phonograph was installed by Louis Glass in the Palais Royal Saloon bar in San Francisco back in 1889.
TouchTunes founded National Jukebox Day to celebrate the iconic jukebox and the powerful memories it evokes in people. TouchTunes is the largest interactive music, and entertainment network in over 65,000 bars and restaurants nationwide. The Registrar at National Day Calendar has officially declared the day before Thanksgiving to be National Jukebox Day.
