At Sam Ash Music, putting instruments in the hands of musicians is our number one priority. We have been so blessed to do what we do for over 90 years. Our legacy in this community is something that we cherish and keep close. With that in mind, anytime we can give back to the community is a gift. We were contacted by various networks that represent the Harry Connick Jr. Show, the Steve Harvey Show, and others, all asking if we could help a musician reach their musical dreams, or worthy cause. We, of course, were happy to oblige. When Steve Harvey called, we gave a talented drummer a $5,000 dollar gift card to update his gear. When Steve called again, we gave a young guitarist a brand-new guitar so she could keep shredding. When Harry Connick Jr. called, we gave an incredible young lady $5,000 dollars towards her charity. At Sam Ash, we’ve always believed that music makes the difference. We are very grateful for all that we’ve been able to accomplish in these 90+ years, and we are continually grateful for anytime that we can give something back.
