Unlike other record stores I’ve spotlighted, Rock City Music Company in Livonia is a ton more than just vinyl. They’ve got T-shirts, musical gear from every instrument, to gig bags, strings, drum sticks and tons more. Plus, they also give music lessons to up-and-coming rockers.
Since opened in 2015, Rock City Music Company has become a music mecca in the metro Detroit area. Along with Vinyl LPs/CDs, they have gear from Fender, Martin, Reverend, PRS, Gretsch, Ibanez, Orange, Ludwig to name a few, as well as in-house guitar and amp repair.
Rock City Music Company is best known for our in-store signing events which has seen us welcome a variety of rock’s biggest names such as Geddy Lee (Rush), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Steve Gorman (Black Crowes), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Butch Walker, Buckcherry, Blackberry Smoke, Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper), Gary Holt (Exodus/Slayer) as well as Alice Cooper who will make his second appearance at Rock City Music Company on September 4th, 2023 (Tickets are almost sold out!

Owner Nick Marocco said “Rock City Music Company is a melting pot of everything that has shaped my life up to this point. I have been an avid musician as well as a vinyl collector for as long as I can remember!” He went on ” My biggest goal with Rock City is to offer a destination where people from all walks of life can share in the greatness of music! Whether you love to play an instrument, or just crank up your turntable, we have something for you!” He said he’s grateful for all of the support they’ve received from the local community since opening their doors and for the memories we have made! “I am excited to see what the future brings”
