Carroll Bratman

Seventy-five years ago an accomplished percussionist from Baltimore working in NYC began loaning friends percussion instruments he owned. He realized he could rent them. Soon he was renting these instruments to fellow musicians shows around the city.

As his business grew he took a keen interest in sound-effect instruments.  Carroll Bratman became the go to person for “foley” effects. His door-bell, door-slamming, shoe clopping sounds came through televisions across the country on one of the most popular TV shows of all time; The Jackie Gleason Show!

Soon Carroll began to grow. In 1968 Dennis Curry joined Carroll and together the business and reputation of Carroll music was firmly cemented as a premiere music rental company for Broadway, Lincoln Center and Broadcast TV in NYC.

In the 1980’s Kevin and Tim Curry joined the business and continue to this day.  At the same time Anthony and James Cioffi were building their company Boulevard Pro into a premiere rental company for touring rock bands and live events on the east coast.

Eventually Kevin and Tim bought Carroll Music in the 1990’s and in 2016 joined forces with Anthony and James Cioffi and merged with Boulevard Pro to create Boulevard Carroll Entertainment Group Inc. 

With rehearsal studios in NYC and warehouses in NJ and Washington DC. Boulevard Carroll Entertainment Group is now the most trusted entertainment company in NYC/NJ and is servicing clients nationwide. And it all started seventy-five years ago when a savvy percussionist named Carroll Bratman began loaning instruments to his friends.
