Help Us Celebrate 35 Years of Music!

Original owner Bill Brown first opened The Minor Chord in April, 1984. Wow - this year marks our 35th anniversary! It's been an honor and a pleasure to work with our local musical community all these years. To thank you for your continued support, we'll be running specials all month long.

In addition to weekly specials, we're accelerating Backstage Pass rewards. A Backstage Pass (they're free - just sign up) normally earns you a gift card worth 10% of your purchases after six store visits. But come in during April and add just one purchase to your Backstage Pass - we'll hand you your 10% gift card immediately!
