I'm real excited because there is going to be an awesome guitar event in my home town!
Rock Legends And Guitar Greats To Attend Mansons Guitar Show
OCTOBER 25th & 26th 2008
Packed full of exhibitors, a room full of electrifying guitar performances, and now a star studded line-up of guests headed by none other than Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones – Manson’s Guitar Show is sure to be the major guitar event of 2008.
Held over two days at the Riverside Leisure Centre in Exeter the guest artist line-up (with more names being confirmed daily) includes world class demonstrators on behalf of major manufacturers such as Marshall, Ampeg, Alvarez, Peerless, Goodfellow, Music Man, Paul Reed Smith and Manson Guitars.
Saturday’s performances will be headlined by Martin Barre, guitarist with Jethro Tull since 1969. Martin has held down the guitar spot on virtually every album recorded by the band and is also a successful performer in his own right.
Guests appearing during the weekend also include Justin Hawkins, the flamboyant frontman of The Darkness and now leader of his new band Hot Leg. The namesake of Marshall Amplification, Jim Marshall OBE will also be signing for fans throughout the weekend. And Aziz Ibrahim who took over from John Squire as guitar player for The Stone Roses and has worked with Simply Red, Asia and Ian Brown will be performing at the show.
Sunday will feature none other than Led Zeppelin’s legendary multi-instrumentalist - John Paul Jones. John Paul was already a session legend in the UK before forming Led Zeppelin with Jimmy Page, John Bonham and Robert Plant, having worked with Jeff Beck, Donovan and performed or arranged for hundreds of artists. John will be answering questions during a special Q & A session on the Sunday of the show.
For the entire weekend artists will be appearing for signing sessions whilst the clinic room will have performances running throughout the day. Session great Big Jim Sullivan has played on over 1,000 hits. Yes, you read that right – 1,000 hits including Tom Jones, Scott Walker, Marty Wilde, Alvin Stardust, Carly Simon and other legendary 60s and 70s acts. His Sunday workshop will be a major attraction.
