Third Rock Music Center Rocks as our Latest OMEGA MVP
For some, the loss of a job can bring an uncertainty of what comes next, but for Gregg Gammon and Tony Colwell, that question never even crossed their mind.
When a change in business strategies eliminated Gregg and Tony’s positions at their previous employers back in June of 2015, the two men, along with Gregg’s wife, Angela, decided it was time to take a leap of faith. They knew they wanted to continue servicing the local musical needs in Cincinnati, Ohio and just one month later, Third Rock Music Center opened its doors.
Third Rock Music Center offers the highest quality instruments and sound systems the industry offers, as well as, one on one lessons with the best teachers in Cincinnati. And while the quality of services they provide is always top of the line, what really sets TRMC apart is the vibe—the feeling you get when you walk through the door. “Did you ever see the show ‘Friends’?” Angela asked, “Many customers come in and sit around the counter just hanging out. Sometimes an impromptu jam session breaks out. It’s upbeat and energetic. Constant smiling and laughing—it’s absolutely beautiful!”
As for the aesthetic, almost all of the materials have been repurposed, making your creative energy pour out. Old doors became counters. A racquetball court is now a glass wall. And the drumstick holder? That use to be a mail sorter from an insane asylum!
It doesn’t take long to see the obvious passion the owners have to providing expert support to the local music community. With over 60+ years in this industry, Gregg and Tony really do love sharing their knowledge and expertise with their customers.
“We want to be small and local so that we can respond quickly with expert advice to support YOUR musical interest and needs.”
Hosting two-four music events monthly, from benefit concerts to educational product days, TRMC goes above and beyond in providing Cincinnati musicians with the tools to express and further their artistic passions. “We are so much more than a music store,” Angela said. “From the first day we opened, we pledged that our store, and especially the stage, would be used as a platform for promoting local talent and events.”
Along with hosting events, Third Rock Music also offers customizable Audio Visual installations for churches, schools, and commercial buildings, allowing the local students and community members to have the proper resources they need in taking part in the creative arts world.
Whether your child is starting their first music lesson, you’re ready to try a new instrument, or you just need tuning up your guitar, Third Rock Music Center has everything to suite your musical needs. Visit their website, check out their Facebook, or stop on in to see all TRMC has to offer. They are located at 1232 8 Mile Rd, Cincinnati, Ohio 45255.
The OMEGA MVP program was organized to help recognize, celebrate and promote the Merchants, Vendors and Partners of OMEGA Processing Solutions. Third Rock Music Center has been an OMEGA merchant since 2015.
