When it comes to musical acts in Connecticut, we’re lucky if our favorite artists even stop here between Boston and New York. And when they do, you have to pray for lawn seats and good weather. But sometimes we get lucky, and this is one of those times.

We’re getting lucky and it’s all thanks to Brian’s Guitars. Not only are they bringing guitar legends like Paul Reed Smith, David Grissom, and Mark Holcomb to Connecticut, but they’re bringing these legends together for an intimate guitar clinic and meet & greet!

On Friday, October 28 at the Oakdale Theatre at 5:30PM, you can head down to the Oakdale, get free admission, meet the artists and have a photo or guitar signed, see some of the most beautiful guitars Connecticut has to offer, and kick back with a beer and some refreshments while you listen to the clinic.

Of course, if you’re feeling especially lucky, you might head home with a PRS Artist SC58 guitar ($3,966 value) thanks to the FREE raffle Brian’s Guitars is holding. Arrive before 7:30PM and you get a raffle ticket. Be one of the first 100 people at the event and you get an extra raffle ticket.

As far as Friday nights in Connecticut go, this is going to be hard to beat. Guitar legends, beautiful instruments, delicious beer, and great music. We may not be a hub for big concerts, but we make up for it with unforgettable, intimate events like this one.
