Janis Music Co.
Janis Music Co. was founded by Edward and Jeannette Janis in 1962. Ed grew up in White Plains NY and as a a young musician and big band leader he toured the east coast in the late 30’s and forties. He was introduced to 16 yr. old Jeannette Bougeois by his brother George and she soon became lead singer for his band in Massachusetts. Four months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Ed joined the Air Force and was stationed at Westover Field. It was 1942 and during Christmas, Ed received a three day pass and he and Jeanette were married. After the war, the Janis’s moved west and eventually settled in Monterey California where Ed worked at American Can Co. on the famed Cannery Row by day and began working as a bass guitarist at the Casa Munras Club (which still operates today) at night.
