About Gaston - Our Instruments Make Musical Memories
Pleasantville Music Shoppe is South Jersey's Oldest Family Owned and Operated Music Shop, since 1938.
Gaston Ragno never knew taking guitar lessons would be the start of his career.
After working in one of Harold Abrams studios in Hammonton NJ, Gaston was promoted to Manager of his Music Shop in Pleasantville. When Mr. Abrams wanted to retire, he persuaded Gaston to purchase the business, paying over time. Gaston was a young man with no money, but he decided to go for it!!
Today, we see many generations of families who continue to patronize our shop and share so many stories and memories of the excitement of "first" instrument purchases. Remembering purchasing with a hand shake and promises of payment..... We enjoy hearing all the wonderful memories and they keep coming!
