Eric Feldman – Founder of Guitar Shop Tees – has said of this month’s featured shop: “We’re thrilled to kick of the new year by celebrating All Music in Plainview, New York – a shop that has been very near and dear to me for decades, and one that exemplifies everything that Guitar Shop Tees stands for – independence, community, loyalty, quality, and service. All Music is where I spent a great deal of time as a kid. I’d ride my bike to the shop and walk into a treasure trove of instruments. I spent hours staring at guitars I hoped to play someday. My endless visits and discussions at All Music greatly influenced my passion for music and triggered my lifelong interest to support and experience independent guitar shops around the world. All Music and every shop we proudly feature at Guitar Shop Tees has poured their blood, sweat, and tears into the stores that they and their families have independently owned for decades. It’s unique when you can look back on your life and see the people and places that made an impact. For me, All Music was one of those places.”
All Music Inc has been the Long Island musicians number one choice for quality equipment, rentals and lessons for over 30 years, representing as the Long Island musicians best friend at South Oyster Bay Rd in Plainview. The company has long been considered the Island’s premier guitar shop and music school, with their sales associates and teachers intent on helping to create lifelong musicians with a desire to be the best at their craft. Just as importantly, the brand has always taken real steps to stand out and distinguish themselves from the other chain music stores and schools with some of the best repair technicians; who work on all guitar, amp, brass, woodwind and orchestral instruments, consistent musician and venue outreach, and the strong strategic partnerships and alliances they have formed.
Thanks to the knowledgeable and experienced people who work there, who are NOT commissioned salespeople and are dedicated to serving the customers, All Music Inc. is known to take a personalized approach to all music needs so that customers get what they want at the best price. Inside the store there is an extensive collection of new, vintage, rare and pre-owned instruments (over 1000 guitars in stock!) to fit any budget, so it’s no wonder that they’ve become the premier music destination for professional musicians and people passionate about honing their craft in the area. Besides the vast array and sheer volume of merchandise on display, they also host regular clinics with renowned players from every style imaginable giving their customers entre’ and insight into those they look up to. Past clinics have included Mark Mendoza of Twisted Sister, John Moyer of “Disturbed”, Mike Orlando of “Adrenaline Mob”, and more.
Additionally, their deep connections with the most prominent manufacturers in the business have allowed them to create special agreements with companies like PRS Guitars and Larivee Guitars who allow the All Music store in Plainview to be their only independent dealer on Long Island. They also have a fantastic selection of Gibson, Fender, Martin, Taylor, Charvel, Gretsch, Seagull, Godin, and Music Man.
There has been a budding relationship between All Music and The Space at Westbury, where they recently opened the “All Music Lounge at The Space” which allows local musicians a chance to perform at the facility, and All Music also did the Contractor Appreciation Party that included Twisted Sister, CJ Ramone and Good Rats members. All Music has also been partnering with the World Famous Tattoo Lou’s, where the All Music team has been involved with the booking and music production of the stage at the past four United Ink Tattoo/Art/Music festivals, as well as for their Poker Bike run and on other projects.
Additionally, the All Music’s Rock N Roll University Band – comprised of some of the best students from the school – have performed at the aforementioned events, and regularly performs at places like the Smithtown Festival and Patchogue’s Alive After Five. Adding to the empire, and founded back in 2011, All Music’s Rock and Roll University in Hauppauge is a performance based rock and roll school where the students take private music lessons each week and then attend rehearsals which all lead up to live rock concerts in theaters around Long Island, New York. They have hosted their Big Concert Series at venues like Theatre Three in Port Jefferson and The Boulton Center in Bayshore.
