Mass Street Music News – September 2013!

The store is a hive of activity today as we are heading out to the annual Winfield music festival. But that’s not the only thing keeping us busy at the store. The renovations are moving along at a faster clip with the second ‘electric’ room now painted. We don’t mind saying we love the way the store is looking right now. We have more surprises up our sleeves so stay tuned.

Grand Re-Opening Party Nov. 7, 8 & 9!
We are happy to announce our Grand Re-Opening and official 30th Anniversary Celebration – and you’re invited! As you may know, we’ve been revamping the store and we’re also putting the finishing touches on a brand new website which will be more user friendly. You can be sure we are going to celebrate the renewal of Mass Street Music with not one but three days of live music, food & great giveaways on Thursday, Friday and Saturday – November 7, 8 & 9! Mark your calendars now – it’s going to be a 3 day blast…even on into the evening on Friday and Saturday. More details are forthcoming and you’ll be the first to know.

Jim B and John F, along with Mass Street luthier Josh Baldridge and our friend Andy, are all headed to Winfield, where our Taylor buddy Eric Sakimoto will join us for the Walnut Valley Festival! They headed out Wednesday morning! If you’re there, stop by our booth and say hi. More on Mass Street Music at Winfield is in this newsletter.

The back, which boss Jim came up with! He’s lived through most of these – who knows what this year will bring…


Electric Gear
While the cat’s away the mice will play! Shhhh – don’t tell the boss. Since Jim, John and Josh are centered on acoustics this week, the rest of us at the store will be cranking it up with electric gear! There are several markdowns on guitars and amps plus we are loaded with some great used and new pedals right now, so if electric is your thing, stop by the store this week and turn it up!

October Workshops & Clinics
Be sure to check out the bottom of the newsletter for two great workshops – David Grier Guitar Workshop on Oct 12 and Recording & Sound 101 Free Workshop on Oct 19. We also have plenty of great concert ticket giveaways always going on, including Bela Fleck and more.

Tuesday Night Concerts
We’re proud to be a sponsor of the annual Tuesday Night Concerts at the Lawrence Arts Center, which just got underway for the fall season. Each concert features a unique musical artist or band, in the intimate setting of the Art Center’s lobby – and it’s free though there is a tip jar, and we encourage you to support live music and this great series by contributing if you can. Each show gets underway at 7:30 pm and lasts just about an hour or so. It’s an excellent opportunity to hear a diverse line up of talented artists.
