Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Our 20th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday was our biggest event ever.  We had hundreds of customers and friends join us for a lot of fun, good food, terrific deals on gear and - best of all - a ton of free stuff!

Thanks to all who made this day so special for us. Dan and Gary from The Quake 102.5 FM kicked things off with a rockfest in out parking lot and kept us laughing the whole morning.  We've got some special "shout outs" to Mike Madlener from Fender and Mike Smith from Roland and Boss, who spent the day talking to customers about the best musical geat on the planet.  These guys drove from Portalnd/Seattle, showed up early and stayed until almost the very end with a break.  You guys rock!

And a ton of thanks to all our business partners who donated gear for our prize drawings and the Shred Contest - ESP Guitars, Fender, Roland, Yamaha, Line 6, Fishman, Chesbro Music, Godin Guitars, Shure, Aquarian Drumheads, Sabian, C.F. Martin . . . and others that I'm forgetting right now

A few more special thank you mentions - Mike Gamble for logistics, and our "go talk to customers and let me cook on that BBQ" folks who kicked us out of the kitchen - Michelle Shermer, Joe Guimond and Mike "Sorry, I didn't get your last name but you cooked awesome burgers!) among others.  Also, guitar teacher extraordinaire, Mike Schenck, who just started helping customers on the sales floor and making sure everyone felt welcome.  And the members of The Swinging Richards and Junk Belly for keeping our blues jam going and all the other musicians who stepped up to show their stuff.

If I missed anybody that deserves special thanks, well ... then ...  THANK YOU!

We'll be posting photos of the event and prize winners today or tomorrow.  And video of our Shred Contest  - now that was a cool show.  We've got some awesome young guitarists in the Wenatchee Valley! 

So to the best customers and friends on Earth  . . . . . Thank You!  Thank you!  Thank You!

Roland and Boss Resources Rock!

We've been a partner with Roland and Boss for almost two decades and we've seen cutting edge gear released year-after-year.  One of the benefits of gear from Roland and Boss is the tremendous resources available at their websites.  Have you web surfed over to the Roland website or Boss website lately?  Besides being able to register your gear, download manuals and technical specification, and keep gear OS and software up to date, Roland and Boss provide so much more.  Make sure you check out Roland's "microsites" developed for individual products, or their hundreds, if not thousands, of product Audio & Video Demos, as well as Interactive Demos.  Roland even has a Worship Connection site with great information designed just for churches and worship leaders.  Boss provides a complete collection of gear information, videos, "how to" guides and podcasts at its Boss Users Group site and special pages like the new ME-25 Tone Room.

Roland and Boss gear is innovative, of the highest quality, and sounds great.  Come down to Avalon Music and hear, see and feel that Roland and Boss know how to rock!
