Isle (not) be Jammin’
Kirk Fuhrmeister has closed the doors to Isle Be Jammin’ for the last time. After having liquidation sales a couple weekends in a row, the few remaining items went to Cecil’s Electronics and Kirk cleared out the store.
Originally called Mellowoods & Music, it first opened on Nichols Street in 1991 in the building where Funk ‘n Junk is now. After about 10 years at that location, Kirk changed the name to ” Isle Be Jammin’ ” and moved to Argyle Avenue, next door to Radio Shack (now Cecil’s) and was there for about 7 years, then over to Spring Street next door to Christy’s Island Hair Salon. And he was there for about 7 years, and then finally to the space shown in the photo above at Surina Business Park where he’s been for about the last 4 years.
Kirk will still do musical services out of his home. He repairs wood instruments and he teaches students how to play Guitar, Mandolin, Ukelele, Bass, Trumpet and Harmonica. If you’re interested, give him a call at 378-5151.
