Rest in Peace - Stan Jay
We are deeply saddened to learn Stan Jay of Mandolin Brothers has passed away. On October 9 we shared his battle with Mantle Cell Lymphoma. On behalf of the Mandolin Cafe we extend our sympathy to his family and friends. Stan's obituary.
Poetry in wood: photos of the Collings sunburst Tenor 1 just appeared on their web site.
Epic: Grammy Award winning The Goat Rodeo Sessions released on this date three years ago.
May be other Collings G1 Tenor guitars out there in retail but we test drove this one this week at Mass Street Music. Brilliant!
No longer secret and has been discussed elsewhere on the web: some of the used instruments formerly at Mandolin Brothers have quietly found a new home here.
Advance notice: this year's After Thanksgiving Sale (11/28) at The Mandolin Store includes a giveaway of a Lafferty LF-5B mandolin to some lucky visitor.
We're digging this art deco Nugget Mandolin that just hit our Classifieds.
Information on the just launched Michael Daves Kickstarter project to fund two solo projects.
