The Musicians' Alley Touch

Musicians' Alley has been growing the local music community since 1989, all while providing quality music services. In the store we carry Guitars, Pianos, Keyboards, Basses, PA equipment, Drums, and a wide array of music equipment. Musicians' Alley offers special discounts on products that are in the store and on product that we order, meaning that the store might be able to give you better prices on music equipment that you've been looking for.

Musicians' Alley has been owned and operated by the people that originally began the business in 1989. Co- owners George Gast and Mike Matter have created.
