Our Staff

Anne Shepherd


Mrs. Anne and her late husband Billy bought the store from the Chicks in the mid 1960s, and since Billy's passing in 1988, Mrs. Anne has been here in the store, rain or shine, day after day, year after year.  She's a fixture in this town, well-respected in the Athens community.

Road Rep

As our road rep, John travels north & south, east & west, over mountain & stream to service school bands all over the Athens area and northeast Georgia. Look out for the Chick Music van in a town near you.  When in the store, John works on the sales floor and in the band repair shop

Derek has been with us for over a decade and has developed tremendous knowledge in the combo division, specifically with guitars and pro audio.  Derek does a little of everything, from sales to managing inventory, from guitar repair to computer work.  Derek has a wife and three kids, but doesn't work in a button factory.
