Jerry Trestman grew up in a musical home, in fact his older brother played saxophone for several of the big bands during the swing era.  Jerry served in the Korean War and was stationed in Japan where he conducted several Japanese bands and played in small groups.  Jerry continued to play professionally after the war but soon realized the road would be too hard for him and decided to open a music store in 1962 in Minneapolis.  His brother later joined him in the small music store, which began to grow and expand in several key instrument categories during that time. Jerry sold the store in 2007 to retire.
