This month marks the 20th anniversary of Avalon Music opening its doors to North Central Washington. Check out our story. Although we'll be celebrating all month with some daily deals, our real celebration is on May 18 and May 19.
On Friday evening, May 18, at 6:00 pm, Avalon Music will be kicking-off the celebration with a drumset clinic with recording artist and drummer extraordinaire Garey Williams. Garey is endorsed by Vic Firth, LP, Remo. Sabian and DW, and you’ll learn why. He is an incredible educator and a truly gifted percussionist. There is a $5 admission fee that’s good for $5 off on any Avalon Music purchase of $25 or more. Plus, there will be door prizes, including a cymbal from Sabian. Garey’s clinics have always been standing room only, so please call and reserve a spot.
The real party is all day on Saturday, May 19, with hot dogs on the BBQ and soda pop. We’ll have manufacturing representatives there to give you the latest information on all their products – and special pricing on everything in the store.
We know you love giveaways and our partners are chomping at the bit to make this huge celebration full of great door prizes! So far, we’ve received a 15” Sabian AAX crash cymbal from our buddies at Sabian, an absolutely cool Aura Delay pedal from the acoustic guitar geniuses at Fishman, an acoustic guitar from our long-time partners at Chesbro Music, and a huge assortment of drum heads and accessories from our friends Aquarian. Not to be outdone, ESP Guitars, who makes some of the coolest guitars on the planet, just let us know there might be an LTD electric guitar on the way! And we may just happen to have a Marshall MG amp and a Fender Champion 600 amp in the mix. Oh, and we’ll have t-shirts and guitar strings, too. And there will be more - just keep checking in here, on Facebook or on Twitter. Whooo, I’m tired just writing all this. It will be awesome!
But we didn’t stop there. We’ll have a live blues jam rockin’ the parking lot from noon until 4 pm. And at 2:00 pm there will be our first ever Shred Contest. Yes, a Shred Contest. Each participant has 60 seconds to lay his – or her – best shredding on us. Let the fingers bleed! Just bring your guitar and any pedals you need - we’ll have amplifiers to choose from. We’ll be video recording the entire Shred Contest and we’ll post the video here to our website, on Facebook and on Twitter. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. So make sure and let us know. Call or come by the store to sign up for the blues jam and the Shred Contest, we’re limiting both to 20 people.
This is our way of saying “thank you” to the friends we’ve made for 20 years. Let’s rock the Wenatchee Valley the entire month of May!
