Spandex Panda sporting a Guitar O.R. Tee!
Another summer has come and gone, but not before leaving lots of good memories. Guitar O.R. was once again kept busy in late July as the official instrument tech to the Calgary Folkfest. We were also happy to be a part of Calgarys’ latest addition the the festival circuit in Calgarys Soulfest.
Keeping the wide array of instruments at the Calgary Folkfest playing their best is no easy task, but something that we have taken pride in for 5 years now. Sudden changes in tempurate and humidity can cause a variety of issues in all the different instruments we tend to, which makes for a busy four days. Being backstage isn’t a bad working enviroment either. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend attending sometime. Its truely a uniquely, laid back place to hear some amazing music. Congrats to Guitar O.R. clients, T. Buckley and Matt Masters for being chosen to take part.
The brainchild of local singer songwriter, Scotty Hills, Calgary Soulfest took place in the beautiful Edworthy Park. Guitar O.R. was pround to be a sponser for what is hopefully the first of many. Local faves ( and clients ) Tim Williams, Scotty Hills and many others graced the stage for the one day festival thats all about the music. Keep your ear to the ground for info on the 2012 edition.
Not to be outdone by the music, many high fives were given by the Spandex Panda who dropped by to say hello at the invitation of Guitar O.R. This just in…. kids love Pandas. Check him out of facebook.
