  • Kansas City here we come!

    Kansas City here I come! Actually here we come! My wife Laurie has recently accepted a new position outside of KC and we couldn’t more excited for a new venture ahead of us. I have lived in New England my whole life (growing up in Maine, going to college in NH and MA, then moving to Boston in 1997) and this area will always have a special place in my life. I am so proud and happy for my wife who truly is a superhero in her field and of course in my life.

    For the past few years we have been visiting different areas around the country thinking about possible relocation spots and every time we visited the area Kansas City won. Great people, great food, easy traffic, great vibe, decent real estate and opportunities for business owners like myself. This decision, while seeming sudden for some, has been years in the making behind the scenes. We just didn’t know when the time would reveal itself but the wheels have been in motion for some time.

    To our passionate fans at ACB please be assured it’s business as usual! In the short time absolutely nothing changes. Our online store, eBay outlet, Reverb outlets will not change. The Boston-area store will continue to operate as usual but eventually the full store will move to the KC area (see below). Any schools who purchase through ACB will continue to receive incredible treatment from all of us at ACB.

    We are so very excited for the future! If anyone has any questions please be sure to reach out via email ( or phone (781-944-6247).

    Big hugs and thanks to you all! Onwards and upwards!
