Richie Jones Jr.

Richie Jones Jr. began playing drums professionally when he was 12 years old for teen clubs and skating rinks. While gigging, he developed skills in production and worked for Morris Brothers Music in Jackson, Mississippi, which led to his interest in music retail. He was hired by Mississippi Music in 1995 and soon took on the task of developing the combo department for the Flowood, Mississippi store. After serving as a salesman for the store for over 13 years, in 2005 Richie was asked if he would be willing to manage the store. In addition to his role at the music store, raising his family and volunteering in his community, Richie was a very active and passionate musician, playing for his church’s Contemporary Christian band as often as he could.
