Lou Bottone: Co-Owner/Operations Manager

Lou Bottone has dedicated his entire life to music. While in high school, Lou began studying the guitar in addition to taking on an after-school job as a sales associate at a local, family owned music store. During his music-shop tenure, Lou worked his way up the managerial ladder, while earning a B.S. degree in Marketing from St. Thomas Aquinas College and maintaining an active touring schedule as guitarist for The Finals, which culminated with the international release of 2006’s “Plan Your Getaway” by Immortal Records. Now Lou, along with his long-time friend and co-worker, looks forward to assuming the responsibility of bringing his knowledge and passion for music and the guitar to his own customers.


Harry Jacovou: Co-Owner/General Manager

Harry Jacovou is a veteran in musical instrument retail. Harry has garnered a reputation for caring meticulously for his personal collection of instruments and gear, which has translated into a caring and meticulous approach to customer service. Apart from his achievements in music retail, Harry owns, operates, and functions as producer and engineer at BlackJack Studios, which he opened initially in 2005, and has since relocated to a brand new state-of-the-art facility, after spending three years designing and overseeing every step of the construction process.
