Billy Wray Music Shop is a family-owned and operated online music store that has a history of serving musicians for over 50 years! In 1955, William A Wray started Wray Music House in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania - right across the Susquehanna river from the capitol of Harrisburg. Eventually, Billy Wray took over the business alongside his sister Betsy Wray DeStefano. By this time, Wray's Music House carried musical instruments and accessories, while Do Wray Mi Pianos dealt strictly with pianos and sheet music. The stores grew from a humble piano shop, to Wray's Music House becoming the largest music store in the Harrisburg area from the eighties well into the nineties. Around 1999 Billy Wray left Wray's Music House and started another store in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania - Scott Wray Piano Gallery. This is how we got our eBay user ID - scottwray.com. While working with Robert Scott (former manager of Do Wray Mi Pianos), Billy ventured into online sales through eBay. Even though Scott Wray Piano Gallery was a successful music store, Robert and Billy eventually decided to pursue other interests. Billy wanted to focus on gigging professionally on the piano (which he has been doing since a pre-teen) , selling on eBay, and spending more time with his family. Billy's son Bill started helping Billy with online sales, and eventually they grew to become power sellers (presently called Top Rated seller) on eBay. Around 2009, Billy and Bill started kicking around the idea of opening another "brick & mortar" music store. In August of 2010, the Wrays acquired the old Member's First Credit Union off the Carlisle Pike on Skyport Road in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Their doors opened to the public in November 2010. Billy Wray Music Shop quickly earned a reputation as a brick and mortar store with friendly customer service, and good prices. After being in the music retail business for over 50 years, we have decided to close our retail doors located at 10 Skyport Rd.
Even though we officially closed our "10 Skyport Rd" retail doors July 31st, 2014, please visit our eBay and Reverb listings.
All of us at Billy Wray Music Shop have enjoyed wonderful relationships with our customers over the years. Although we will miss not seeing you come through our Mechanicsburg doors, we are looking forward to spending time spoiling our grandchild!!
