About Us

Tony's Music Box Ltd. is a family owned and operated retail music store which was established in 1975. Tony's has earned the reputation for providing a very friendly environment and a staff that is very honest and knowledgeable. We pride ourselves on premium customer service. We represent a wide variety of quality product lines for many instrument and audio categories including a large selection of instructional and songbook material. We provide rentals and in-store repairs for guitars and other stringed instruments.

Tony George opened Tony's Music Box Ltd. in 1975, along side his wife Rosemarie (who managed all office duties). They worked as a team until her illness in 1998, which resulted in her passing in 2002. Although Tony has stepped down over the past few years, he always loved going to work, dealing with the public and suppliers alike. Providing musicians with their needs and seeing the enjoyment they received from participating in music gave him great pleasure.

 

Our Staff:

Michael George - Owner/ Piano Department - [email protected]

I began my career at Tony's shortly after my dad opened the store (1975) on a part time basis during my education. As my dad had stepped down in the late nineties, I had taken over management position. I also specialize in the Piano and Keyboard departments. Like my dad, I also love going to work, dealing with the public and suppliers alike. I thrive on running an honest business and seeing the lives of many from all ages being enriched because they are involved in music.

My music experiences consist of performing in a pop band in the late eighties, then formed my own jazz band in the mid nineties and since the late nineties to the present, I have been playing contemporary Christian music with my local church worship band. I have also practised casual song writing.

Terri George - Print Music Manager - [email protected]

I began working at Tony's Music Box with my dad in 1987, coincidentally when I became a mother. I have been working alongside my brother Michael now for many years, and I currently manage our Print Music Department. I am also responsible for Accounts Receivable. I look forward to helping customers find the music they're looking for!

Karl Gans - Drum Department - [email protected]

I began my employment with Tony's in 1989. I've worked in several capacities, from sales and rentals to renovations, grounds keeping, flood mitigation and disaster clean up. I co-manage our Drum department. I've been playing the drums since 1978 and maintain a long standing teaching practice. I've been a professional musician since 1980 and have played in a large number of bands in a wide variety of styles. I've been a session musician in various studios playing on many projects.

I've had the drum throne with The Ross Neilsen Band since 2006 completing twelve two month and then some national tours and am now preparing for the thirteenth. Anyone know a bass player? I am a fourth level zombie whisperer. Besides playing the drums I enjoy dabbling with electronic music, percussion, and synthesis, designing and building experimental musical instruments and playing the Chapman Stick. I have designed a stand dedicated to the Chapman Stick available at Stick Enterprises.

Jason Sonier - Drum Department / General Sales - [email protected]

I'm originally from Miramichi, New Brunswick. I moved to Fredericton in 2005 to do a 2 year program in Audio Engineering at the Centre for Arts & Technology and have loved it here ever since. I've been playing drums since 1991, when I was 12 years old. I've always loved music and enjoy meeting new people everyday.

Dave Palmer - Repair Technician - [email protected]

I have been Tony's Repair Technician since December 2003. I have been playing guitar since the mid sixties, and pedal steel guitar and dobro since 1976. I have toured every province in Canada, several States in the US, and in 1984 completed a tour of the UK. I retired from music as a full time occupation in 1984, and opened Palmer Precision Gunsmithing in Fredericton in 1985, eventually doing all facets of gunsmithing and rifle making. 


Many of the skills I learned as a gunsmith have been invaluable in the work I do at Tony's. I derive great satisfaction from doing the finest work I am capable of on the instruments and amps entrusted to my care, in the hope that my work will further the customers enjoyment of their instruments. Tony's is also a warranty repair station for Fender Musical Instrument Corporation for instruments and amps, and is frequently entrusted with warranty repairs on other brands including Taylor Guitars.

I still perform live with several bands (Flat Top, Sleepy Driver, Matchstick Mike) and participate in recording sessions at several studios.

Matthew Blanchard - Guitar Department / General Sales - [email protected]

I am from Fredericton and have lived in the downtown area my whole life. I play multiple instruments and enjoy delving into audio production. For the past five years I have been involved in the local music scene and played in several groups at venues across the province. Look to me for assistance in the stringed instruments section and general sales!
