ORLANDO GUITAR TOWN (PART 3)

Over the past two weeks there were two final events for the ORLANDO GUITAR TOWN.
First, the last public display of the guitars at Lale Eola on April 26th.....







































Then Came the Gala Auction....

This past Thursday, May 7, the guitar artists, and music and art enthusiasts, attended the Orlando GuitarTown’s last gig. Ending on a high note, bidding on the 72 hand-painted Gibson Guitar sculptures, attendees helped raise more than $175,000 for local charities; the Downtown Arts District, Page 15, the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, and the Parramore Kidz Zone.



























































































































































































































Following the auction was a special performance by the
BLUE MAN GROUP!
































SEAKING OF GUITARS....

I was at Island Music today, andmy friend Sam showed me a few guitars he was appraising:
a 1936 Gibson ES-150
and Gretsch Chet Adkins Nashville Model (probably 1957-65)
