From TV John

I have had several wonderful dreams about your family, and I am very grateful for the positively amazing impacts that your family has and continues to have on my music career. I always enjoyed talking with your Dad Victor Litz, a true musical expert. And then, in 2003, your 14-year-old son Austin performed in my son Gary's concerts in the basement of my house! Austin went on to arrange and sing more than 20 of my dream albums! Austin continues recording my dream songs in my basement to this day! Your son Billy's performance on my tv show was truly stellar! I was delighted when Billy's "HUSTLE SOULS" band came to me in a dream! Billy can tell you about my subsequent dream song recording! And then there are your twins Michael and Logan! Michael recorded drums on several of my dream songs in my basement! Myself a twin, I always enjoy working with you, Logan, Michael and your staff at Victor Litz Music store in Gaithersburg, Maryland! Our community really appreciates your family's outstanding contributions to our community. I encourage everyone to take his/her music interests to ! And your music store is a musical landmark for our community. Thanks again and again.

Hello, Victor Litz Music! My wife stumbled across your site today and, knowing that I grew up not far from Gaithersburg, asked me if I had ever heard of your store. I had an instant wave of nostalgia: I grew up in Clarksburg in the 1970s, when downtown Clarksburg was just a general store, a post office, a gas station and a bank. I was a teenager in 1975 when I first went into Victor Litz, when the shop was located in the old house on 355, and rented a Harmony 5-string banjo. Every three months or so I would come to the store to buy strings, and I would always enjoy speaking, however briefly, with the cool people (musicians!) who worked in the shop. And the smell and the sound of the old house is something I remember even today. I remain a lifelong musician (banjo, accordion, piano, dobro), due in no small part to Victor Litz. I have not been back to Clarksburg or Gaithersburg in decades, but I am glad to know that you're still around! Very sincerely, Geoff Freed


Victor, I got the Epiphone Mastebuilt this afternoon. It exceeded all expectations. Great bass and mid-range tones and the high register has a reverb ring to it. You guys have a satisfied customer for life. Thanks again. Roy Peiser, Virginia Beach, Va. 

A recent note from a long time family friend
If it weren't for your Dad's shop, and the lessons I took there (50 years ago), there's no way I would have the career I have enjoyed ever since.

Thank you, Tony. I loved your father. It was an honor to have known him. His legacy comes front-and-center every time I "count off four" at the beginning of every Louis Prima show.

Peace. Love. Music. Family.
