The music must go on. After an unforeseeable issue with a business deal for Cripple Creek Music, Mike McAvan wasted no time finding an alternate location to bring his business dream to fruition in Huntsville.
“Sometimes in business deals that are complicated the two parties come to an impasse and one has to walk away,” said McAvan.
He’s since purchased the building at 7 Main Street.
“It’s not just a music store, it’ll be a music experience,” said McAvan. “People can come in and get expert advice on chording, guitars, technology, and music education.”
Music on Main will also offer lessons from various professionals in the area including Juan Barbosa and Nathan Da Silva.
“We’ll offer lifestyle products that are music-oriented including t-shirts, paraphernalia,” said McAvan. “We’ve secured all sorts of great lines for products: Fryette amplifiers, Teye guitars, Fret-King products, boutique pedals such as Horizon Devices, and Idiot box pedals.”
He’s working to have a quick close on the location to get the store open and ready for those who have already come to experience his dedication to great customer service.
“It’s going to be my vision going forward without a dark cloud hanging over me,” said McAvan. “It’s going to be a hub for the musical community in Huntsville and surrounding areas. They’re going to get honesty on top of the service, on top of the service; we’ll stop at nothing to make people happy. We’re only going to carry products we believe in; such as MJS pickups. They’re very prestigious and custom built.”
McAvan is also going to build custom guitars.
“It’ll be very much along the lines of Tom Anderson guitars and John Suhr guitars; hot rodded, exotic woods.”
He plans to hold regular events including workshops and seminars for topics related to musical education.
“I’m excited to be on the main drag and to own and preserve a piece of Huntsville’s history,” said McAvan. “Musicians of all walks of life and skill levels are going to be welcome to come in and be a part of it.”
