Wisconsin’s Good-n-Loud Music to Close
The store was founded in 1976 by then-sound engineer, Steve Liethen. He and partner Pete Botts began building speaker cabinets and mixers out of a basement, soon changing the name of the business from Roadgrator to Good -n-Loud. In 1990 Steve’s wife Chris joined as a partner in the business.
Good-n-Loud operated from the corner of Gorham and Broom (now occupied by Silver Mine Subs) for a number of years before moving to their location at 5225 University Avenue. A second location was opened on Atwood Avenue but was downsized a short time later.
The Liethens are currently looking for an appropriate venue to host a celebration where they hope to bring in as many former teachers and employees as possible.
