Our History

Lafayette Music Co., Inc. opened in the heart of downtown Lafayette on Vermillion St. in August of 1955 under the leadership of Mr. William C. "Bill” Peyton as "Lafayette’s Downtown Music Center.”

Although it was a full line music store, the main focus was on pianos and organs. In the early ‘60s, after outgrowing its original location, Lafayette Music moved to 551 Jefferson St. Mr. Peyton and his wife Marie committed themselves and Lafayette Music Company to the development and growth of music in Acadiana.
