Lemur Music

Toni Buffa and her husband, Jerry, purchased Lemur Music from the founders in 1995.  The fun name of the business comes from the first names of the couple who started the store in 1964, Leah and Murray (Lea-Mur) Grodner. Toni and Jerry grew the business to include more accessories as well as their own bass designs.  Toni continued to run the business after her husband’s passing and noted that it was clear by the out pouring of support that she was not just a part of an industry, but part of a family too!  With her dedication to serving her customers, that family continues to grow!
