Art Kubera began taking accordion lessons when he was eight years old growing up in Buffalo, New York.  His love of music continued to develop and within a few years he was playing in school bands and later his own bands around town.  After years of playing professionally, he realized there was a need for musical instruments and accessories in the Buffalo area, which led to him opening Kubera Music in 1949.
