Musician's Friend was founded in 1983 by Rob and DeAnna Eastman. Newly married, the Eastmans financed the start-up with a $5,000 loan from Rob's parents and ran the business out of their suburban California garage. Eventually relocating headquarters from San Diego to a dairy barn in Southern Oregon, Rob and DeAnna, along with brother-in-law, Al Dinardi, grew the business into a prominent direct marketer of music gear.
We’ve come a long way from our dairy barn. Today we have multiple locations around the U.S. to provide quick delivery and excellent customer service. Our corporate headquarters is based in sunny Westlake Village, CA. Our two support centers reside in Salt Lake City, Utah and Indianapolis, Ind. Finally, our 700,000 ft distribution center is in Kansas City, MO.
