Ashley came on with Butler Music at our new location in Harrisonville in 2017. She regularly performs her own acoustic sets, is a killer fisherman, and will unload a truck quicker than anyone else in the company. Her heart is almost as big as her muscles, and she's got the singing voice to match.

Shipping and Receiving

Wyatt can tell you where everything is located in the building at
any given time, and can safely pack just about anything while being
creative and efficient. He's an original Butler Music staff member

so don't hold that against him.

John Allin
Banjo, Harmonica and Guitars

The newest member of the Butler Music crew, John has a wide range of experience with 
banjo, harmonica, and guitar--even a bit of drums. When he isn't re-enacting Civil War
skirmishes, he's putting time in at the store or out at a gig.

Sales, Gretsch specialist

Rich has worked at various stores in the KC area since the 80s,
and collects just about everything. From campers to vintage bicycles,
there's no hobby that he can't handle.
