Mickey Jent

Mickey Jent opened a small music store in Lubbock, Texas after World War II with her husband, Ray, after his return from military service. The store became a hub for local musicians including Buddy Holly. Strong supporters of the industry, the Jent's participated in Scull Groups, the early days of NASMD and became early supporters of the Discover Music campaign of the early 1970s. Their store, now run by their daughter, has successfully expanded its product line over the years to include band, piano, and combo instruments. Ray served on the NAMM Board and was on hand in 1997 with Mickey when the new NAMM building was dedicated in Carlsbad, California.
