Blues City Music new store front sign

Hello from Memphis.

Welcome to 2017.  We hope things are already going great for you. 

So how do you like the new sign I'm having custom built for BCM as I write?  5" thick letters in dark blue with all enclosed LED lighting, then 18" tall letters in white with light blue edging so it can be read at up to 700+ feet from the store.  Frank Balton Signs is building this for me, and it should be done in under 3 weeks.  Now it will be simple to find BCM even when driving down busy Germantown Parkway.

Blues City Music's store front is alive and well.  All of our inventory is in the shop right now, plus I'm going to 2017 Winter NAMM in Los Angeles, California, in 2 weeks so who knows what product lines I may pick up.  I do have meetings with most of my manufacturers, but will also speak with a nice guy that hit me up about doing school band instrument rentals.  Great logistics and they ship straight from their distribution center so I don't have to stock any products.  I just cut the deal and viola' you are jamming in school band. 

Still looking for a new and unique boutique pedal board line.  Let me know if you have any good ideas, but I have no intentions of doing the ordinary and competing with big box stores.  It has to be unique.

Standby for more information coming your way and by all means get in on our Monday night jam nights when we have them scheduled.  9pm to 1 am.  Yeah, all you need is your guitar, bass, keyboard, or drum sticks.  We supply all the rest.
