Dave Buckeyne can’t remember a time in his life without music. His father was a band director in Detroit area schools and bought instruments for students who could not afford one. As a result Dave had access to every type of musical instrument imaginable, often times just sitting in the basement or tucked away in a closet. Dave and his sister played them all. He played trombone in school and studied music education to follow in his father’s footsteps. While in college, he was given the opportunity to work as a summer intern for the JW Pepper Company, a chance Dave jumped at having recognized the company’s products as a music student. Dave has been at JW Pepper ever since!
