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 9 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.
