Nashville, TN (September 8, 2009)–Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, held barbecue events at five locations throughout the Southeastern US in late August.
The events, a way for GC Pro to give back to its loyal customer base, offered free catered barbecue, live entertainment, a selection of prizes, and giveaways/exclusive deals on pro audio gear for recording, live sound and more.
Held at Guitar Center Professional locations in New Orleans; Hallandale, FL; Atlanta; Towson, MD; and Nashville took part. GC Pro Account Managers and store employees were joined studio owners, musicians, engineers, producers, students and other local industry figures. Richard Ash, GC Pro Eastern Region, Business Development, who recently relocated to Nashville, had a key role in planning and overseeing the Nashville event, and took the opportunity to interact with prominent members of the local pro audio community.
“These events were all an enormous success,” stated GC Pro director Rick Plushner. “We are always looking for ways to say ‘thank you’ to our loyal customers, and the pro audio communities from each region turned out in large numbers to partake in great food, great entertainment and great company. More than a few took advantage of our special one-day-only deals to pick up some gear they’d had their eyes on for some time. The response was great, and we look forward to holding similar events in the future.”
