Musical Giant Gibson Guitar Announces “Gibson Rocks” Event at New York City Showroom

Co-Partnership with W3G Entertainment Group Spawns Quarterly Industry Networking Event for Music Industry Executives

Gibson Guitar, the world’s premiere musical instrument company, announced that it has partnered with W3G Entertainment Group to produce a quarterly networking party for music industry executives in their New York City Showroom located at 421 West 54th Street in Manhattan.

The idea for a networking event evolved from several conversations between Gibson Guitar New York Entertainment Relations and W3G Entertainment Group as both sought a means of reaching out to our community during uncertain times. The event will serve as a low-key closed environment with great live rock music and an opportunity for music industry executives to connect and partner for future opportunities.

“The quarterly industry event at our New York Showroom is just another way Gibson Guitar continues to reach out to the music community in every aspect,” said Henry Juszkiewicz Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar. “We look forward to working with W3G Entertainment and the many musical talents discovered through this unique opportunity.”

Â?Aside from giving Gibson a chance to make sure their name is at the forefront of the minds of those in a position to ensure their artists use Gibson equipment; it is also an opportunity to reach out and provide a valuable and necessary service for our small community in light of recent lay-offs and consolidationÂ? according to Georgia McBride, President of W3G Entertainment.

The first “Gibson Rocks ” Industry Networking Event will be held on August 19, 2004 at the Gibson-Baldwin Showroom in New York City from 8 Â? 11PM . The event is by invitation only and requires an RSVP. Drinks and hors devours will be served and entertainment will be provided by emerging rock bands found through W3G Entertainment GroupsÂ? annual international emerging talent initiative called M.E.T.R.O Search.

Performers represent a wide spectrum of music in the rock genre and for the inaugural event the list includes San Diego pop-punks Pensive, Maine singer-songwriter Graham Isaacson and modern rockers Harsh Krieger from Nashville. In addition to the entertainment Gibson Guitar will showcase some of their most popular instruments including signature guitars, Baldwin piano and Slingerland drums.
