Welcome to Blues Angel Music

Pensacola's #1 Independently Owned Musical Instrument, Accessory, and Equipment Store

About Blues Angel Music

Blues Angel Music (BAM) was founded in August of 1997 by retired Navy Captain and fighter pilot Jim DeStafney. He and his wife Nan, a retired Navy forensics officer, have grown the store from its one-man, 1,000 square foot beginnings into a 15,000 square foot, full-line music store, complete with a fully-staffed school of music.

Serving the Pensacola area, Blues Angel Music provides an impressive selection of new, used, and vintage gear for the beginner and the professional musician alike. In addition to our selection of new, used, and vintage gear, and Blues Angel Music's School of Music, BAM has become Pensacola's best choice for band and orchestra instrument sales and rentals.

We have been named a NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Top 100 Dealer 5 years running and we've also been voted Best of the Bay. These awards are due to our friendly staff of experts who are eager to provide information and advice relating to any of the instruments and accessories we offer. It is the goal of every crew member at Blues Angel Music to be the Gulf Coast's “go-to” spot for aspiring musicians as well as gigging professionals.

You actually touch all the merchandise. Nothing hid behind the counter. And a good selection. More than one item every budget level.

They have some instruments I've only seen in pictures or video before. Guitars galore! And if you're a ukulele nut like I am, well, you've just got to see it to believe it! Blues Angel RULES!

Thank you for letting us come in and try all the drums.. and even encouraging us.. we were making noise.. and you thought it was music.

The number one guitar store in Pensacola! Locally owned and operated, with the best staff, and selection of guitars. They not only treat everyone like family, but are involved in our community. No reason to EVER go any where else for your musical needs.

Great store, great variety of instruments, great atmosphere, and great people. So many music store experiences are ruined by that last thing. But not this place.

- George Reed

I bought a Reverend Double Agent from these guys and got first class service. They were very helpful and the shop was very organized and easy for the shopper to find what they are looking for. Do yourself a favor and head there for you musical needs.

Excellent customer service! Went there to buy a guitar at 5 o'clock on Saturday and the doors were locked. The owner let me in and allowed me to browse and pick a guitar. Then cut me a great deal! Awesome place.
