Three Great Gretsch-Sponsored Events in May

Three Great Gretsch-Sponsored Events in May

Gretsch Guitars and Drums will be on display and in the hands of many great musicians at three noteworthy events happening next month.  Don’t miss your chance, not only to see some great Gretsch instruments in action, but to meet Fred Gretsch himself in Chicago and Louisville!

The Revival Festival – May 7 and 8

The 3rd annual Revival Festival is happening May 7 and 8 at the Nutty Brown Amphitheatre in Austin, TX.  You’ll not want to miss this annual music festival that celebrates the genres of Rockabilly, Country, Blues, Honky Tonk, Punk, and Americana.

Sounds like the perfect place for multiple Gretsch guitar sightings.  Sure to be some swag there as well.

The Chicago Drum Show – May 15 and 16

America’s premier vintage and custom drum event, The Chicago Drum Show, will be held May 15 and 16 at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St Charles, Illinois.

Fred Gretsch

Fred Gretsch, president of the Gretsch Company and fourth-generation drum maker, will be on hand to offer a presentation on Gretsch history.  As the only man in America still actively involved with the drums that have born his family name for 127 years, he’s the perfect candidate to make a historical presentation.  You won’t want to miss it!

Abbey Road on the River – May 27 through 31

The world’s largest Beatles-inspired music festival is happening May 27 through 31 in Louisville, KY.  They have an amazing lineup of musical talent scheduled to perform at several different venues.  Be sure to check out their website for all the important details.  And if you can’t make it to Louisville, the festival happens again in DC in September.

At a festival with a Beatles theme, you’re bound to see several Gretsch guitars in full swing.  Fred Gretsch will also be there on Saturday and Sunday, May 29 and 30!
