August 7th brought Gibson Acoustic Day to Music Villa in Bozeman, Montana. With the annual Sweet Pea Music and Arts festival taking place just up the street, many people, both old customers and festival attendees, had the chance to stop by and visit with factory representatives and try out the many Gibson Acoustics that the store has in stock.
Along with the wonderful guitars displayed, Gibson owners were treated to re-stringing and set ups. Serious customers and just the curious were able to ask questions, play guitars, and get in on the giveaways that were drawn for throughout the day. Adding to the festivities were performances by local and touring musicians, much to the delight of the crowds. Gibson’s own Sarah Moranville and Levi Main kicked off the day.
They were followed by local singer/songwriter Ashley Holland.
Headlining the event was independent recording artist Stephanie Quayle, with Los Angeles based guitar player and producer Asaf Rodeh. A Bozeman local, Stephanie is currently working on her fall tour, and her music can be found at www.stephaniequayle.com.
Other activities rounded out the weekend, including the Music Villa Performance Academy’s own band “The Fire Marshalls” (featuring Gibson girl Caroline Janssen) performing at a fundraiser for the Bozeman Public Library.
Gibson Montana would like to thank the staff at Music Villa, the performers, and all of the wonderful folks in attendance that helped make Gibson Acoustic Guitar Day a success.
