The owner, Brad Klimowicz, never played an instrument until age 31 when he fell in love with the guitar. Working offshore as a sailor, this afforded him an abundance of down time to practice. He wanted to quit his job to become a rock star! But he was not so naive to believe that at 31, with no musical experience, he could make that happen. So, he quit his job as a sailor (Merchant Mariner) and decided that he wanted to be a part of the music industry in some way.
Then, it hit him: What better way to be in the industry than to sell officially licensed shirts of the bands he loves?!
We are not looking to get rich. Our prices are competitive and our merchandise is high-quality; we all just want to carve out a decent living doing something we are passionate about. Every customer is important to us and we will strive to make it the best experience possible.
The company is owned and operated as a sole-proprietorship and family business. We are not some massive corporation that is in it solely for profit and where you are just a number. These days, many of them treat us as if we are cattle; they are just so massive. We are here for the passion and love of music and musicians. We want to share that passion and love with our customers.
We have aspirations to help up and coming bands, expand to selling records, and help charities in our communities.
We take pride that all of our band tees are officially licensed. There are many places on the web where you can find counterfeit t-shirts for cheap. But a knockoff tee puts zero dollars into the hands of the artists we love and/or the industry that keeps them afloat. Knockoffs are also often very low quality shirts. We are proud to support the artists we love and we hope you will feel the same way and represent them with a great shirt from The Electric Bird!
