Founded on June 1st, 1981 by Millikin University college roommates, Randy King and John Larson, the business first opened as King-Larson Music Services. Originally located at 505 West Broadway in Bradley, Illinois, the first building was less than spacious. Not only were there several other music stores already established in the area, but it was also a tough economic time. “In 1981 we were in the middle of a recession and people told us the store would never make it,” Randy noted. Despite the tough times, King-Larson Music Services was able to fulfilled a need in the area for a business that was involved in the community and put music education first. Later that year, when John Larson left the area to pursue other interests, Randy called on his brother David to join the business. The company was renamed King Music Services, Inc (dba KINGMUSIC, INC) Randy and David maintain that the most important ingredients that have determined the success of KINGMUSIC are music education, community involvement, and customer service.
