The history of McKay Music Company is a long one to the school bands of Northeast Texas. Established by original owners Kenneth and Billie McKay in 1954, the tradition of providing quality sales, service, and repair to area school bands continued to 1980 when ownership was assumed by Bob and Sandra Cartwright. They worked on serving the area band needs until July 1, 1999, when James and Denise Coffman took over handling this wonderful music tradition. Now, as of June 20, 2019, the baton is passed to Chad Causey. Chad also owns "The Band House" chain of music stores with locations in Bossier City, LA, Texarkana and Garland, TX.
It is the desire of McKay Music Company/The Band House to enhance learning opportunities for students by providing only the highest quality instruments available from the leaders in instrument manufacturing across the world. The Band House also provides weekly service visits to schools and uses highly skilled and experienced repair technicians for the best quality repair service in Northeast Texas.
Road service to schools is provided by experienced musicians and Texas educators; therefore, you truly have musicians serving musicians.
In addition to serving the needs of school bands, The Band House also welcomes local musicians, both amateur and professional, and seeks to provide only top quality instruments, equipment, and service. Our professional staff welcomes any ideas on ways that we can help fulfill your musical needs!
