Moving from a small store in Portsmouth’s North End to become a music warehouse in Farlington, on the outside of the city, Nevada Music has become one of the UK’s largest independent music retailers. Stocking an enormous array of guitars, amps, PA and guitar effects, Nevada has recently expanded its hi-tech and computer music department and has just opened the ‘Drum Attic’- an upstairs drum department.
The Nevada Planet is staffed by Drew d’Auriol; a Roland UK product specialist for five years, Drew was initially based in the old Southampton Planet and moved across to establish the Portsmouth Nevada Planet in the summer of 2008.
Drew lives in Southsea and can be found out and about the various venues in the city checking out the local and touring bands. Nevada Music similarly stays actively involved in the Portsmouth music scene; hosting and sponsoring various events throughout the year.
A keen drummer, Drew is a long term user of Roland V-drums and plays in various function bands in the Portsmouth area and further afield. This makes our V-Drums range his favourite product group and his favourite part of the job is seeing people embark on their musical careers and introducing new technologies to people to help them create their music.
