Steve Neff

Steve Neff opened Wellington Music in 1990. It fast became a fixture in downtown Wellington, Ohio.


In 1999 Steve was offered a substantial promotion in law enforcement, leaving him with little time to spend at the store. Already burning the candle at both ends, he decided to close his doors and focus on his career. 


After retiring from law enforcement Steve went to work for NASA training security personnel, but he missed having a music store and interacting with his fellow musicians. So in 2011 he decided to open a new Wellington music with his son, Steve Jr.

As their customer base grew, more staff members were added and Wellington Music grew in size. Recent building renovations allowed the store to expand and feature even more products.

Steve Neff Jr.

Steve Neff, Jr is a full time Union Journeyman Carperter. He works for the biggest Construction company in Cuyahoga county. He has a passion for music, and decided to partner with his father to open a music store that caters to local musicians. Steve specializes in sound engineering and strives to make concerts a memorable experience for both the performers and the audiences.

Dave Williams

Dave has been a long time guitarist who has toured the world performing great music in many venues. Dave has been with Wellington Music since its inception and is a valuable asset to the store. Dave currently plays in a contemoporary worship band. Dave's specialities are guitars and amps. He also teaches the guitar/bass lessons at the store.
