Bob Bergin fell in love with music-making the moment he joined his school band! While earning his degree in music, Bob was often found on the bandstand playing trumpet in a number of dance orchestras. With a passion for his instrument, he landed a job at Ault’s Music store in Fort Worth, Texas, where he met his longtime friend, Tommy Moore. Tommy’s father established the store and Tommy inherited his father’s entrepreneurial spirit, owning a number of music companies over his long career, including Rhythm Band Instruments.
