NEWS / CALENDAR INFORMATION

Hello from Rochester, NY

Musical Notes and Sports Items...

♦ Starting this month, we’ll be concentrating on our Costello Music operation, located in the world famous House Of Guitars.  Besides our music studios we have a school band instrument rental business there. For those of you who have not been to this famous store, it's home to an estimated 30,000 to 40,000 guitars and a million albums, CDs and tapes. It could be successfully argued that the House of Guitars is the best-known independent record store in the country, after being the subject of admiring profiles by both People magazine and The Wall Street Journal.  Among the rock stars who have shopped there include Aerosmith, Peter Gabriel, Brian Setzer, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns & Roses, Sheryl Crow, Ozzy Osbourne and the list goes on and on.
