Oral History Information
Dan Hall was the founder of Hall Piano Company, located on David Drive in Metairie, Louisiana. The store was opened in 1958 just after Dan had moved from Beaumont, Texas, where he began his career as a piano retailer. His interesting story in the music industry began by a chance meeting with his brother following World War II. Dan began working in his brother’s piano store which is where Dan discovered he loved the craft of tuning and repair. The Hall Piano Company continues to serve the Metairie and New Orleans areas of Louisiana to this day with Dan’s nephew, John Wright Jr. and John’s partner Steve Kinchen as co-owners.
