John Allegrezza began working in the piano business in 1957 and soon discovered he had a real passion for the business and the people. In 1981 he opened his store, Allegrezza Pianos, in Ridgeland, Mississippi, just north of Jackson. Over the years he has worked with some of the biggest names in the business including Kawai, which was his first line! John has been named the Kawai Dealer of the Year several times, a fact of which he is very proud. John is also very proud that his grandson is now in the business, working right alongside of him.
