Welcome to a Celebration of BAL-AMi Jukeboxes

BAL-AMi was the biggest British manufacturer and distributor of jukeboxes in the golden beat-boom era of the late 1950's through to the early 1960's. A number of people (older than me ...) who were around at the time have helped to build up a history of the company. However, I'm always looking for more information, and I'll publish the info on this site. I'm also interested in hearing from anyone with BAL-AMi stories to tell, and BAL-AMi pictures are welcome.

In particular, I am trying to track down any photos that may exist of a van that Balfour decked out in BAL-AMi logos - there is a project ongoing to recreate one of these !

Feel free to contact me if you can help with any of the above.

For my own part, I'm just a BAL-AMi owner, and am definitely not an expert on how they work and fault-finding  -  so it's probably not worth asking !  The best way to get sound technical advice on BAL-AMi jukeboxes is to join the British Jukebox Owners' forum (otherwise known as BJO). It's free, and they're quite a friendly bunch with years of experience.

In the meantime, take a tour of the site to learn more about this once-famous jukebox manufacturer.
