Brian K. Rieck Music Studio
Brian K. Rieck Music Studio, now in its second location at 604 Volunteer Parkway, Suite 3, Bristol, TN—has been a rich resource for sales, repair, lessons, and rental of a wide array of instruments since 2005. Though Brian K. Rieck Music Studio is only 12 years old, Mr. Rieck has been in the music repair business since 1990. Joining the Navy shortly after his college days, Mr. Rieck spent many years playing in Naval bands, before leaving the Navy in the early 1980s and working in the defense industry.
A native of Cucamonga, California, Mr. Rieck’s first music business, Vintage Winds Musical Instrument Repair opened 1991, and by 1994 they were servicing over 5,000 musical instruments a year for area school districts. After many happy and successful years in California, Mr. Rieck sold the business and re-located to the ti-cities area in the early 2000s, working out of Joesph’s Musicenter.
Mr. Rieck loves the hometown feel of the ti-cities region, very familiar to his own hometown he grew up in, priding himself on his studio’s customer service, Brain K. Rieck is most grateful to the people of Bristol and it’s surrounding areas for their loyalty. With years of experience, including performing at Barter Theater, Theater Bristol, and The Paramount Theater, Brian Rieck has all the knowledge anyone needs when it comes to learning a new instrument, or getting an old favorite up and running again.
