Russo Music has opened a brand new location at the Jersey Shore in Asbury Park..!!! The original location is in Hamilton, NJ where the business was started way back in 1960..! The new Asbury Park store is located on Cookman Avenue which is a stone’s throw from the historic town of Ocean Grove. Many of you know that Asbury Park was a hotbed of musical talent back in it’s heyday. Well, I’m here to tell you that the town is on the rise and the music scene is percolating with fresh, new talented musicians. Russo Music is smack dab in the middle of it all.
I have personally visited the new store and I have to say that it is excellent..! The store vibe is extremely cool and features brands like Gibson, Fender, Marshall, Vox, Orange and Martin just to name a few. They have a full line of effects, accessories and a little bit of everything for the working musician. Let’s not forget about drums, PA and recording gear as well. I met up with Scott Engel the store’s manager and had a little chat with him about the brand new venture. He is really pumped about it (although he’s not getting much sleep) and is gearing up for the official grand opening on Saturday, September 4th. There will be giveaways throughout the day of the event. You all know where I will be that day 🙂
If you are a musician in the area c’mon “down the shore” and check out Russo Music of Asbury Park. Stop in and see Scott and let him show you around the brand new location..!
