Our Story and History
Founded in 1996 by guitar virtuoso Richard Jessee and drummer Tim Taylor, the vision continues to be a music store that truly serves the music community around Virginia Tech and beyond with a staff of accomplished musicians that are knowledgeable and passionate. The current owners, Dan and Greg, have played music extensively in the region, including bands with Richard and Tim. Today, we carry on Rocket's legacy with the same passion and expertise that ignited Rocket's launch. Surrounded by expert staff, instructors, and an exceptional music community in southwest Virginia, Rocket thrives as a result of their experience and service. Thank you for letting us serve your music needs!
