Kevin Schwallie- Beet Farmer 

My name is Kevin Schwallie, and I am the store manager for Willis Music’s Kenwood Gallaria.  I first started with Willis Music in January of 2004.  My first day, was the day we opened the Eastgate store, in it’s current location, which I worked for over 4 years. I  worked and managed our former Tri-County store, and was also a manager at our West Chester Willis/Moeller Music store before managing here in Kenwood.  I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management/Administration from Northern Kentucky University’s College of Business.

During my time with Willis Music, I have created and hosted many great events.  Some of these  include: Cymbal-Land Cincinnati, Snare Drum Tastings with Gretsch, Mapex, and Pearl,  Drum Clinics with Liberty DeVitto, Chris Coleman, Scott Pellegrom, Marko Djordjevic, A Cole Clark guitar clinic with Maneli Jamal, and the Taylor Guitar Roadshow.

In my non-Willis life, I am a drummer and percussionist (for hire) in the Cincinnati area.  Other hobbies include playing league volleyball, trivia nights, hiking, live theater, live music and concerts, some light traveling, dominating at board games, and spending time with my twin niece and nephew.
