J&B Pro Music was the brainstorm of James Winney over thirty years ago.
Jim was born and raised in Fort Erie Ontario where he played trumpet in both the high school and air cadet bands. After graduating high school, his passion for playing the guitar led him to tour across Canada and the U.S. as an opening act with several successful bands.
It became apparent that there was a need for quality audio equipment and sound technicians at affordable rates. Without this, "it could make or break the band".
Jim studied to be an audio technician and began working in clubs with then, a single P.A. His rental shop was a 250 square foot, one car garage bay with no heat. In time Jim's reputation built to be a great sound man with great gear. Karen, Jim's wife, is also a musician, (guitar and piano teacher) with vision and a solid business sense. After years of hard work and perseverance their dream became reality.
