Jimmy’s Music Center has a new owner and will become Kentuckiana Music Center in a new location.


Dark green is the new color for the downtown building we’ve come to associate with Jimmy’s Music Center, currently being renovated by Steve Resch’s crew — but just the corner building at Market and Pearl, because there have always been two of them, joined long ago for commercial purposes and painted as one.

We were out of town when Anna Blanton announced the purchase of Jimmy’s Music Center and a forthcoming move to the corner of Pearl and Elm opposite Harvest Homecoming’s headquarters, which many of us remember as the space that never housed the cider bar.

Jimmy Gaetano and family have been running Jimmy’s Music Center for a very long time, and on August 10 there’ll be a Celebration of Jimmy’s Music Center in the Biergarten at Floyd County Brewing Company.
