Long and Mcquade

https://www.long-mcquade.com

Jack Long was a professional trumpet player who, in 1956, thought that maybe he could sell instruments to some of his friends in the musical community.  He set up a small store on Carlton Street in Toronto on the second floor of an old house and became a dealer for King Band Instruments.  The floor was divided up into music studios so Jack was also able to teach trumpet lessons on the side.  About 6 months later, Jack rented out a room to a local drummer named Jack McQuade which he used for drum lessons.

In 1957, the Jacks decided to open up a small retail store on Yonge Street and named it Long & McQuade Musical Instruments.  Many existing customer service policies sprang from these early days.  The rental program began when the partners decided to start charging their friends for all the instruments they were “borrowing”.  The financing program began when a customer asked if he could purchase a drum set but not pay for it all at once.  Jack & Jack continued as partners until 1965 when Jack McQuade decided to pursue drumming full time and sold his portion of the company to Jack Long.

Long & McQuade began expanding in 1968 and hasn’t stopped since.  Currently there are over 70 Long & McQuade stores across Canada as well as an online store that opened in 2008.  The company employs over 1,300 musicians and contracts around 1,000 music teachers across Canada.  To this day, the entire company is still 100% owned by the Long family.

Back in the 90s—before tweets, ‘grams, and digital marketing even existed—our co-founder and CEO, Andrew Dreskin, co-founded TicketWeb, the first company to ever sell tickets online. His street name in certain circles is “Father of the Online Ticket” (though of course he doesn’t look old enough for that to be true). After selling TicketWeb to Ticketmaster in 2000, Andrew went back to his roots as an event promoter, putting on events like the Virgin FreeFest with Richard Branson. But by 2008, he couldn’t ignore all the new technology that was paving the way for a better event technology company, so he got the band back together and co-founded Ticketfly, the first platform to bring online ticketing and digital marketing under one roof. He signed the company’s first contract with Pete Shapiro of the Brooklyn Bowl on a street corner in Williamsburg.

Today, with Andrew still at the helm, Ticketfly continues creating industry-first products that make the lives of venues, promoters, and fans easier. That includes Fanbase, a CRM for event professionals; Ticketfly Pulse, real-time event stats on your phone; and Ticketfly Promoter, a comprehensive talent booking tool. We’ve moved from doing individual deals on sidewalks (although that still happens from time to time) to working with more than 1,200 venues and promoters across North America. And of course, we’ve been acquired by Pandora, the world’s most powerful music discovery platform. Together, we’re working to create the definitive music platform for connecting fans, artists, and event promoters.

It’s Time.
Time to push limits and break boundaries.
Time to adjust the Frequency.

With every extraordinary idea, there comes a time for evolution. For Freq - it’s right now.

We’ve grown up, and so has your market. We have new thoughts; different perspectives and they can no longer be contained. We are on the edge of culture, music, fashion and everything in between, giving you the most cutting edge topics, insights and opinions of the season.
Look at our faces and flip through our pages, you’ll still recognize us. We’re still a team of mentally unstable geniuses that will have you begging for more. Brashness burns in our soul, and we are ready to AMP that up.

This is our city. These are our streets.

We’ve been here, lurking in the corners, behind those incredible experiences you’ve all been having...creeping in the darkness, making sure it all goes down. Your pleasure has been our fuel.

Now is the time for the FREQ’s to step out of the shadows to tell you what’s REALLY going on.

You’ll now find us in every nook of the city. Our boutiques, bars, salons, galleries and café’s are our podiums.

We’re not your grandma’s cup of tea, or a teenager’s shot of Jack. We are an aged scotch– strong, flavorful and with a bite you can’t ignore. We’re more than a quickie leaving you unsatisfied – we’ll leave you quivering for more.

It’s time.

Time for you to turn the page, and find out that we mean what we write, and write what we think.

No more bullshit.

No more frills.

Welcome to the new Freq.
