Freeway Music mulls move to Depot

BLYTHEWOOD – After a year of planning, a year of construction and a year of searching for a buyer, the Town of Blythewood has found a potential purchaser for the Doko Depot, and if the sale goes through as expected, it may come with a bonus – Freeway Music.

The music company, which offers lessons for guitar, piano and most other musical instruments as well as musical theater training, told The Voice in an exclusive interview last week that it is negotiating a contract to lease part of the building from Wheeler & Wheeler who is in the process of purchasing the shell building from the Town.

“We’re in a holding pattern right now,” Freeway Music owner Don Russo said.

“It’s a fantastic location if it works. We should know something soon,” Russo said.

The company has five locations in the Midlands and provides musicians for many of Blythewood’s events including the Christmas parade, Carol lighting and warm up for amphitheater productions in Doko Park.

Bravo Blythewood announced last month that it will be partnering with Russo to bring musical theater productions to the amphitheater this spring.
