On behalf of Allegro Violin and Music (as well as our local musicians) I would like to send a shout out to our good friends over at Five Star Guitars in Hillsboro. The US Small Business Administration has awarded the owners, Geoff Metts, Jeremie Murfin, and Johnpaul Simonet, the title of 2016 Oregon Small Business Persons of the Year. It is a great honor and we could not be happier for them. They have created an outstanding environment and a great store for musicians here on the west side. Considering the fact that they were up against not only other retail stores but also some of the finest restaurants, cutting edge tech shops, and phenomenal entrepreneurs in Oregon this is huge. You’ve made us all proud.
