Fred Bramante

Fred Bramante formed the music retail store Daddy’s Junky Music on the East Coast and went on to play a vital role on the NAMM Board during a dynamic period in the association’s history. While playing in a rock band in college in the late 1960s, Fred got the idea of buying used music gear and selling it to performers he knew who were looking for unusual equipment. The idea led to the formation of Daddy’s Junky Music and Fred’s career long involvement with the music industry. He served on the NAMM Board in the mid 1980s when they established the Market Development Department, which Fred oversaw at the Board level. His store closed in 2011 at which time Fred focused on his second passion, education.
