The Music People, parent company of On-Stage and TMP-Pro, reached an exclusive Canadian distribution deal with B&J Music. The deal goes into effect on April 1.

Founded in 1931 and headquartered in Baie-D’Urfe, Quebec, B&J Music is a distributor of musical instrument brands. Its lineup ranges from guitars and keyboards to drums and percussion. After 84 years in business, B&J became a division of Jam Industries back in 2015.

With this deal in place, On-Stage joins the other brands under B&J’s portfolio. This includes, for instance, Takamine Guitars, Ovation, Gretsch Drums, ROLI and Supro.

On-Stage, B&J Hope to Better Serve Canadian Dealers

Tom Tedesco, vice president of sales for On-Stage, expressed enthusiasm about the new arrangement. Because both companies fall under the Jam Industries umbrella, he believes it will prove beneficial for all parties involved.

“As fellow divisions of the Jam family, we are excited to begin an exclusive distribution partnership with B&J,” Tedesco said. “Canada is an important market for the On-Stage brand, and with B&J’s 90+ years in the MI industry, we are positioned well for continued growth in the future.”

Similarly, David McAllister, vice president of B&J Music, feels the two brands complement one another because of their shared values. In addition to this, he hopes this deal will enable On-Stage to better support its Canadian dealers.

“B&J Music, division of JAM Industries, is pleased and proud to become the exclusive distributor for On-Stage in Canada,” he said. “Since 1979, On-Stage has set the standard for innovation, quality and value in the music instrument and pro-audio accessories market. This award-winning brand perfectly complements the B&J Music ion family of first-call, market-leading product lines. We look forward to working closely with the On-Stage team to bring excellence in sales, service and support to all our valued Canadian music dealers.”
