McKay Music was sold recently to a company named The Band House that has multiple locations in the Texarkana, Shreveport, and Garland areas. After 60 years of being a downtown staple, the Sulphur Springs location is now called ‘McKays, The Bandhouse’.
They are going to be doing renovations to the building along with the rebranding. They will still be doing all the same types of sales and band instrument rentals as before but with an updated look. Store Manager Sal Castro told us that they will be expanding the brands of instruments and supplies that they carry. Castro also told us that they also have long-term plans of adding a small recording studio.
