    A little bit about our History


    For those of you who might be new to us, here's some history. My grandfather David Rothman, who started Rothman's Department Store, founded us in 1918. Though our 99 years we have become a fixture in downtown Southold. An old time General Store catering to the local and tourist trade of the North Fork, we still strive to remain one of the last remaining "General Stores" on Long Island.

    We probably are one of the most unique Music stores you will ever see. People like Albert Einstein and Benjamin Britten graced our halls, satisfying their musical needs. Einstein would play in Musical Quartets, organized by my grandfather, in the same building where we are today.



    Here is a youtube video of a picnic with Benjamin Brittan and the Rothman Family.

    Guitars came into place with a small corner dedicated to several Harmony type guitars, strings and accessories. It was during the mid 60's that I took an interest in getting my own Guitar business going. Keeping an eye on the accessories and still getting those Harmony guitars, it never appeared to amount to any more than a sideline. I did expand in the late 70's and 80's getting some Yamaha and Applause guitars. It was several years ago things really took off. While picking up several used instruments I realized the interest in these "used guitars" and the vintage guitar market. As that part of my business grew, the need for some new guitars came about. That's where the CF Martin Guitar Company and other name brand guitar makers, came in.
    Now being an Authorized Martin guitar dealer for over 25 years, and searching out top quality instruments, we have become Eastern Long Island most complete Vintage guitar store.

    I have been involved in the Music Scene for the last 30 years, playing with several different bands. Whether it is Folk, Rock, Bluegrass, Jazz or blues, I seem to be in touch with what music is happening. Whether it's playing currently with Southold Slim and The Park Avenue Gypsies, Crazy Helen and Blues Collar Band, "The Jody Leah Jazz Quartet," "King Scallop and the Oysterettes, "or sponsoring Jams in the local Clubs, I try to follow the music of the East End. We have in the past held open Mics at the store on Satuday afternoons. Getting a nice turn out and have some fun jams going on. Stop in and see what it's all about. I've been active in the music activities during the first Greenport First Night along with several concerts sponsored by The Arts in Southold Town. I have been appearing at both the Cedar Beach Blues Festival in Mount Siani, NY Blues Festival on Long Island and The Riverhead Blues Festival We also appeared at Blues 2000(+5) at the Nevele in the Catskills with the Crazy Helen band. These appearances will be with a few of the different bands listed on this page..


    Now with our big move to ART in Southold we are looking forward to being here to serve the communitty for years to come.
