Bowl & Jam at the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show

If you love jamming or you just want to browse at great guitars, it’s just about time for the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show, which will have its 2nd Annual stop at Brooklyn Bowl on September 9th. The show in April was so successful that they’re doing it again now.

Admission is free and the event will take place from 11 am to 5 pm. Visitors can buy, sell, trade or enjoy admiring guitars, amps, pedals, accessories and other items. Items will include new products, used and even vintage wares.

What makes this event particularly unique is that the show is taking place at the Brooklyn Bowl. That means there will be 16 open bowling lanes, amazing food choices from the Blue Ribbon Restaurant, a bar with Brooklyn Brewery beer, 9 video screens and more. This creates a unique and fun environment where patrons can come to bowl a few lanes while browsing at the guitars and accessories.

As the show organizers explained,

“Now celebrating our second year, this one-day gathering is essentially a one-of-a-kind marketplace for musicians in the New York metro area to network and meet other players from the area. Vendors will be selling an assortment of new, used, vintage and handmade guitars, amplifiers, effects pedals, guitar strings, picks, straps, cables, parts, accessories, books, videos, CDs, and all sorts of other guitar-related goodies.”
