Local Legend Pete Gent retires after 37 years at ‘The Music Dept’ Business, Local Business, Local Music, Shopping on The Parsons Knows Local Music

Anyone that has had anything to do with music living in the St Albans area will know Pete Gent from ‘The Music Dept’. A regular hang out for local musicians, Pete has helped and supported countless bands and budding musicians over the last 37 years with advice, practical support, the odd lend of a PA when a band were struggling & quite often some work in the shop as well! just a few of the marvelous things Pete has done over the years to support and encourage local musicians.

The Music Dept on London Road sells and repairs all sorts of music related items from strings to leads to guitars, PAs & more! A great place to go for advice and repairs too with Pete’s workshop out the back! The shop is now owned and run by Ford Shackcloth for the last few years with Pete’s retirement in mind and will continue on in the tradition that Pete started 37 years ago.

Good luck Pete – enjoy your retirement!
