About Kagan & Gaines Music Co., Inc.

Robert Kagan, original owner and founder of Kagan & Gaines Music Co., Inc., established the store on Wabash Avenue in downtown Chicago in 1939. Kagan strived at being Chicago's purveyor of fine stringed instruments, catering to students and renowned musicians alike. The shop soon evolved into a full line music store carrying the major brands in band, orchestra, guitars, drums, pro audio, and accessories.

In 1941, Joseph V. Cali, a 16-year-old high school sophomore, got his first full-time job working at Kagan & Gaines. After many years of hard work, learning the trade and managing the store, Cali, along with business partner and symphony bassist Harold Carnes, purchased Kagan & Gaines Music Co., Inc., from Robert Kagan in 1962. In June of 1982, Kagan & Gaines made its new home in Forest Park, IL after Cali purchased the remaining stock from Carnes. The Cali family has since been the sole owners. Nevertheless, the reputation that Robert Kagan set long ago precipitates still as we continue to provide fine quality musical instruments, becoming your one-stop-shop in the Chicagoland area for band, orchestra, guitars, basses, amplifiers, drums, pro audio, and keyboards, as well as a full line of accessories to compliment them. In addition, we offer lessons, rentals, and repairs, and we provide service for a number of neighboring schools and churches. We even continue to provide services for customers out of state and abroad. Please stop into our store to view our instrument showrooms or inquire about other services that we offer.
