Hello to everyone from Guitarshows
« on: April 11, 2013, 09:52:58 AM »
Hi to everyone.

I am Peter. I've been playing guitar for about 50 years and I'm a gigging guitarist in an Eagles tribute band, valve amp builder and collector and for the last 15 years I have been arranging the UK's best guitar shows here in the North of England.

I would like to use this site to interact with other guitarists about equipment,tell you about my band's gigs and keep you updated about the guitar shows we organise.

Our next guitar show is The North West Guitar Show at Haydock Park Racecourse Exhibition Centre on Sunday 19th May. This is a massive event with about 100 exhibitors in four halls with gear to sell, demo, try-out, discuss and generally have a good time with like-minded enthuusiasts. There will be live music all day with rising star of the Blues scene BEN POOLE with his band plus jazz-swing from Anth Purdy, rock from The Andy Bennett Band and sheer virtuosity from 14 year-old James Bell, winner of Young Guitarist of the Year 2011. What's more there are gear demos all day and, among others, ace session guitarist Lee Wrathe will be demoing Roland Boss gear. A fantastic day out for anyone into guitars.

The next gig for our Eagles Tribute band is this Saturday 13th April at Amore Wine Bar, High St. Frodsham, Cheshire.

Best wishes

Peter

Hi Peter, and welcome to guitaristguild.com   :tup:

Please feel free to do so, that's exactly what I built this site for.  ;)  Must say, I've never been to a guitar show, sounds interesting.  Do they hold any in Essex?

Thanks.
I'm not aware of any in Essex. We organise five a year in the north. We tried further south in Birmingham and Nottingham. Other people tried in Southampton, South Wales, Norwich etc but they just didn't work as well as they do in the north. Don't know why... There have been several over the years in London but more like trade shows just for the big names etc. Ours are more retail, buy on the day type events. Have a look on YouTube for "Merseyside Guitar Show 2012" to see a video of one of our events. Or "North West Guitar Show with Bernie Marsden". Exhibitors at our shows are anyone from the biggest distributors, manufacturers and brands like Gibson and Roland right through to the private collector who only has 4 or 5 guitars to sell, guitar repairers and people who sell parts and accessories at ridiculously low prices.
I know it's a long way for you but as an enthusiast you should try and attend. You would have  fantastic day out. Make a weekend of it and have a Saturday night out in Manchester or Liverpool - some great live music going on there!

Peter, don't forget to log in occasionally, and keep us up to date with any up and coming events.  Post about them and add any links you have to them.   Remember, you post and I'll tweet them. ;)
