Our second event of the 2019 GSI Concert Series took place early this year in March, and it was another full house event with flamenco great Antonio Rey taking the showroom stage. In hindsight, this event was not underestimated, and correctly so – even after following the great success of the “Scott Tennant and Friends” show – since this show packed quite a punch of its own.Continue Reading
Let’s be honest – here at GSI and in Los Angeles in general, we meet and hear a lot of incredible guitar players, both from seasoned professionals and the best up-and-coming young talents, and though we haven’t seen absolutely everything, we definitely get exposed to a fair share of great musicians. However, even from our very lucky vantage point, we can still be taken by surprise once in a while… and candidly admit we’re still floating from last week’s concert featuring the legendary Yamandu Costa.
We know it’s early into 2019, but this past weekend may have already been the highlight of the year! For one night, we hosted a lineup of some of Los Angeles’s finest classical guitarists to give the 1969 Segovia Ramirez its final and proper goodbye. The event was called “Scott Tennant & Friends” and it ended up being a PACKED house (as you can see from the photos below!)
Join us Saturday, January 19th at the GSI showroom for a final celebration of the Segovia Ramirez before it’s officially sent home with its new owner. Over the course of its long tenure here at GSI, this legendary guitar has been played by many generations of great players, and at this event, it will be played one final time by a lineup of some of our favorite artists including Scott Tennant, Andrew York, Tavi Jinariu, and Taso Comanescu.
