ABOUT THE VENUE Troll Music has been a landmark in the Venice musical community for over 30 years. Realizing a dream of creating a music store where the local music community can come for quality products, great musical advice, high-level instruction and repairs. Troll’s first location was in a small storefront under the Venice Avenue Bridge, making the name choice of “Troll Music” an obvious one. Today we are prominently located at 628 E. Venice Avenue. Along with the Music retail store and lesson facilities, the new location also includes a performance venue supporting songwriters, live bands, guitar clinics etc.
