Trade Regrets: Art Kubera

Christian Wissmuller • People • November 20, 2013

After years of performing as a professional musician, Art Kubera turned his focus towards addressing the need for musical instruments and accessories in the Buffalo, N.Y. area, which led to him opening Kubera Music in 1949. 

In 1976 a young Joe Lamond, current CEO and president of NAMM, purchased his first new drum kit from Kubera.  Just six months ago Art and his son Michael, who ran the store after Art retired, were interviewed for the NAMM Oral History program.
