Gorham Brothers Music opened it's doors in December 2011 at 118 Seeley Road, Syracuse, NY.

Brother's Gorham have been involved in the Syracuse music scene for over a decade playing in bands, touring nationally, and buying and selling musical equipment. After losing some favorite music stores in the area, they set out to create a store that embodied all the things they love about the stores that they've been to locally, as well as across the country; affordable, vintage, and hard to find mountainous amounts of gear you can plug in, play, and shred on for as long as you want. The Syracuse music scene has the chops to make these songs memorable all over again. The Beatles gave the world soft songs, melodic songs, fast songs, edgy songs. The Central New York musicians were ready for it all. Syracuse New Times Sammys 2007 Award Winners

It's hard to imagine the Syracuse music scene without the Westcott Theater. Every week, the venue is pumped full of acts spanning legendary to local, hip-hop to folk to electronic. For Syracuse University students, it's become something of an initiation: When transplants get to SU, they learn quickly that the Westcott is right around the corner and it's the music spot. Likewise, locals know to keep an eye on the schedule for their all-time favorites or the next big thing.

Syracuse and CNY Music - Syracuse NY

Here in Syracuse, the radio station had access to the concert venues of its time. At the War Memorial, disc jockeys had a rite of passage and had access to national acts. These DJs saw how it was done backstage. They would take that process of what they had seen backstage and create a local time line for the Syracuse music scene that became The History of Syracuse Music. Each of the 14 albums included bios on the bands and photo collages of the popular Syracuse bands. These were bands that might never be able to record or get a label. Even without "management," the bands could submit a recording and if it was chosen they would appear on the cover in the collage and pressed on vinyl. Every band's dream -- recorded proof of their existence on an album to be heard forever.
