To give a better sense of who we are here at Beau Monde Sound, let us introduce our owners: Lou Bottone and Harry Jacovou. Together, Lou and Harry can boast of over 30-years experience in music retail as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the music business and music production. Lou and Harry’s combined know-how and diligence led initially to the successful opening and operation of Beau Monde Guitars; now, they are proud to bring their extensive knowledge and passion for music to Beau Monde Sound.
LOU BOTTONE – CO-OWNER
Lou Bottone has dedicated his entire life to music. While in high school, Lou began studying the guitar in addition to taking on an after-school job as a sales associate at a local, family owned music store. During his music-shop tenure, Lou worked his way up the managerial ladder, while earning a B.S. degree in Marketing from St. Thomas Aquinas College and maintaining an active touring schedule as guitarist for The Finals, which culminated with the international release of 2006’s “Plan Your Getaway” by Immortal Records. Together with long time friend and Beau Monde Guitars co-owner, Harry Jacovou, Lou looks forward to sharing his passion and expertise of music with every customer of Beau Monde Sound.
HARRY JACOVOU – CO-OWNER
As General Manager and co-owner of Beau Monde Guitars, Harry Jacovou is a veteran in musical instrument retail. Harry has garnered a reputation for caring meticulously for his personal collection of instruments and gear, which has translated into a caring and meticulous approach to customer service. Apart from his achievements in music retail, Harry owns, operates, and functions as producer and engineer at BlackJack Studios, which he opened initially in 2005, and has since relocated to a brand new state-of-the-art facility, after spending three years designing and overseeing every step of the construction process. Now, with the inception of Beau Monde Sound, Harry will have the opportunity to provide his already loyal customers with quality music and sound equipment.
