About Us



Since the founding of the original MidBell Music Store in 1939, the goal has always been TOTAL CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. The growth of Ray's Midbell Music, under the same management in Sioux City since 1972, can be attributed to personal contact with music educators and a dedication to providing exceptional service and support to all of our customers. -- musicians, students, families, schools and communities. This philosophy, combined with the active engagement of the Siouxland music community, a state-of-the-art facility, a constantly evolving digital infrastructure, and most importantly, hard working, dedicated employees makes Ray’s Midbell Music the leading music retailer in Siouxland.
