Sam Keeney Piano and Organ Company

Sam Keeney loved playing music! He had a road organ he hauled to performances nights and on weekends. Starting in the late 1950s, his day job was music retailing. In 1970 he bought a store in Spry, Pennsylvania, and renamed it Sam Keeney Piano and Organ Company. Over the years he pioneered product lines and saw plenty of trends come and go. Through it all, Sam kept lugging his road organ to entertain. Even after his long run as a retailer ended in 2009, Sam continued to pack his instrument in his car and drive off to awaiting audiences eager to hear him play.
