It is not every day a member of the Jackson 5 strolls into your music shop and walks out the door with a guitar.
Jim Hauer of Hauer Music, 528 Miamisburg Centerville Road in Centerville, now knows that more than most.
Jermaine Jackson, the fourth-born in the iconic musical family that also includes Michael and Janet Jackson, stopped by the music shop Wednesday and bought a 12-string guitar for his tour.
The music shop posted about the experience:
“Jermaine Jackson- legendary Jackson 5- stopped by and purchased a beautiful 12-string guitar for his tour. It is hard to believe it has been nine years since Michael's passing. Jermaine and his brothers are going strong and touring the US; next stop Detroit.
By the way, the huge rock on his hand was a special made ring to commemorate the Jackson 5 50th anniversary. Jermaine now lives in Nice, France. We do ship to France and other parts of the world.”
Jackson was heading to Detroit for a show, according to a woman who answered the phone at the store Thursday.
Jermaine Jackson is scheduled to perform Saturday with The Jacksons as part of a free outdoor Detroit Music Weekend concert celebrating the music of the Jackson 5.
