Jeff Bertrand is the president of the music company his parents started back in 1983.

Jeff began working in the store cleaning clarinets when he was just 13 years old. He pursued his passion for baseball for several years working for minor league teams in Colorado and Idaho before attending college and rejoining the store full-time in 1998.
