The folks at GBase have an interesting service. It’s like an online shop for hundreds of vendors in one place. There was not much to show you here but the link at the end of this narrative will guide you to more.

You’ve already seen the Burn Method design stuff but did you know that its owners also make a hot sauce? No? Well now you do. They had some to sample and purchase. I really liked it, as it had a nice bite. I love hot sauce.

The Guitar Show Has Ended

Here we find the whole crew of event organizer, musicians and press. Yep, from left to right is Lisa Sharken, Larry Corban, Ken Pierce (that’s me by the way) Skeleton Pete Parrella and Joe Kaufman. We all had an awesome day and I had to close it out in dramatic fashion.

So that brings us to the end of another fun adventure at The Brooklyn Bowl for the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show. As expected it was a positive day of good people, good fun, food and hundreds and hundreds of awesome guitars. I have to admit that even though I am a drummer, this is a great way to spend the day. For more information on the companies that you saw in this posting, you can click the link for their respective company and do a little more digging. Hopefully the show continues at this space and that we will be able to attend the next time around. Now back to the regularly scheduled Metal broadcasting.
