As we said on our home page, we are now the Tulsa area's oldest music store still owned and operated by its founder. In October, 1978, Ray Firey opened a 600 square foot music studio for music lessons west of Sand Springs-naming the business after the family gospel group (comprised of him and his brothers) who regularly sang in the area at the time. Firey Bros. Music quickly grew from its orgins as a music studio into a retail music store when students started requesting musical accessories. Since that time in 1978, Ray has witnessed many changes along the way. As Firey Brothers had up to three locations at one time in earlier years, they now just have one Tulsa location at 516 S. Sheridan owned and operated by the one who started it all, the original founder, Ray Firey.*
*Since we are asked about this on a regular basis, we thought we would give the background on the location we used to own in Sand Springs (which is now Firey Music and Lessons). Wanting to scale back to the one location in Tulsa, Ray Firey sold what was Firey Brothers Music, merchandise and building, to his brother John Firey and his son Jonathan Firey in 2006. John had previously partnered with Ray at Firey Brothers Music for seven years from 1980 until 1987. John operated his new store independently from the original store under the mutually held family name and called it Firey Music. In 2014, that location was sold by John Firey and Jonathan Firey to Tina Bill who changed the name slightly to Firey Music and Lessons. To conclude, the original Firey Brothers Music (founded in 1978) has not been associated with that location, Firey Music since 2006 and Firey Music and Lessons (run by the Tina Bill and the Bill family) since 2014, but with the similarity in names, this association is often assumed. Hope that clears up some of the name confusion.

Used & Consignment Shop - We are quite successful consigning musical items for people and also received many used items in trade. (See Page on this Website.) On Consignments, Firey Brothers Music receives 25% of the the agreed-to asking price, but besides advertising on our Used and Consignment page, we also list (and successfully sell) some items on Reverb to give more exposure. Depending on what we have in stock in the store at the time, we are selective, but this is a trouble-free way for a customer to sell guitars and equipment.
