Reverend Guitars will be attending and they’re giving away a $1,500.00 Reverend ‘Tommy Koffin’ Signature model guitar on Sunday. Reverend is based in Ohio now, but they started in Detroit in the beginning back at the Fairground Guitar Shows in the early 90’s, so treat them like locals.

Longtime Fraser music store & long time Michigan Guitar Show participant Huber Breese Music is back & will help Gordy’s Music give away a Fender Standard Stratocaster and an Epiphone Les Paul Special Vintage Edition. It takes a really great crew to keep a local music store going for decades (since 1972!) — so we’re extra pleased to have Huber Breese be a part of this 30th Anniversary Event.

Gabriel Currie, owner of Echopark Guitars & Norb Amplification will be giving away an Echopark EchoCaster (worth $2,450) following the Larry McCray performance on Sunday afternoon. It almost sounds too good to be true, but we promise – this is real.

In appreciation of 30 years of support, Michigan Guitar Show founders Gordy & Marcia Lupo of Gordy’s Music in Ferndale will be giving away a variety of instruments and surprise gifts every hour on both days!
