“Home of the Mediocre Music Makers”
Despite its name, nothing inside of the small brick building located just off old Route 66 in Erick, Oklahoma is actually for sale. Owner Harley Russell encourages guests to take all the photos they want and stay for an impromptu jam session.
If I could give this place no stars I would. My mother and I entered and a redneck who owned the place immediately racially harassed her and sexually harassed me. Good riddance
I wouldn’t recommend. Especially if you are a woman. I don’t mind someone being redneck, but that doesn’t give them the excuse to just sexually harass every female that walks in. Very strange experience and not what I was expecting. Save your time and pass this stop. Such a bummer because the building with all of the old Route 66 stuff is awesome. But the owner ruins the entire experience.
Harvy is open to receive visitors again. My friends and I were there this morning (May 28th, 2015) and it was an amazing experience, a must stop if you are in the vicinity.
Cool shop and great place to stop. Once you exit the freeway, it's a short drive through town - can be there in just a few minutes from I-40.
I have to agree with Leila about the rating. I came here while on a cross-country trip. Harley had seen me walking around the town taking photos of the building, and evidently that offended him. He made some sarcastic remarks to me and when he found out where i was from (California) made additional mean remarks. He used rude language, too. I was quite shaken after the experience. I would have liked to say how much I admired all the things in the shop and outside of it, but was not given the chance.
I will never forget this place!! Made our trip ❤️wasn't what we expected but the experience was even better than what I had in mind. The fella is ornery but we loved it 😂
It was fun stopping by on an evening of last June, Harley was just about to close but when he saw 3 beautiful French women he re-opened the door hahaha! and he really MADE THE SHOW during at least 15 minutes! we had a wonderful time and made a video which I would like to send to him... Best wishes for him and his "housekeeper" as he said...
My daughter and I made this our first fun stop on our westward journey to school in CA. We met Harley and had so much fun wandering around inside and out. What a crazy, random fun place to stop, stretch your legs and snap some pictures.
we stopped on a sunday day afternoon and sadly it was closed. Still worth the awesome photo ops.
Read the reviews and was a bit concerned, but it was cool. Is Harley a bit odd and strange? Yes. But his store is really interesting. He encourages pictures and questions. He does say some different things but just don’t take it personally. Really enjoyed the stop on a cross country road trip. He basically gives you a free tour and showing of everything Route 66 so we tipped him! :)
