MIRBO is the brainchild of Ted Ervin and Sandy Connolly, two musicians active in the Connecticut Shoreline music scene. One of the benefits of owning Crescendo Music Loft, a teaching and rehearsal studio in Madison, CT, is being able to keep a lot of nice instruments and equipment on hand. More often than not, many of these instruments sit idle. Every so often, people just come by and give us really nice instruments and equipment that we either find homes for or keep in the studio. I mean, don’t we NEED a studio accordion?!
Don’t you NEED to try playing it? Ha ha!
We have a beautiful Reverend Telecaster that Sandy can’t possibly sell or give away, but she’d be willing to loan it out over a weekend to someone who wanted to try a Tele.
Thus, MIRBO was born.
