Sometimes all it takes is a little music, a lot of personality and big idea to make an impact. Dale Lazar keeps himself young by entertaining seniors with the help of jukeboxes, a business he knows well.
Dale Lazar grew up in the coin-operated amusement business. As a young man, he worked summers and vacations learning all aspects of the business founded by his grandfather in 1932. After a career as a Teacher of the Blind and Visually Impaired, he joined the family business in 1977. Currently, Dale Lazar serves as a board member of the Pennsylvania Amusement and Music Machine Association (PAMMA). He has served three terms on the board of Amusement and Music Operators of America (AMOA). In 2011, Play Meter Magazine honored Dale with the prestigious Operator of the Year award. In 2012 Dale received the Volunteer of the Year award given by the Jewish Agency on Aging.
