The Kansas Celebrity Hall of Fame is announcing its first ever "Guitar Extravaganza." What is a "Guitar Extravaganza"? It's a guitar concert, guitar performance competition, guitar exhibits & more, according to Mike Flood director of the event. "For some time I've been wanting to put on an event dealing with guitars and guitar music. It fits well with the Jim Halsey Archives exhibit as it features many autographed guitars from celebrity artists such as Eric Clapton, Glen Campbell, AC-DC, The Oak Ridge Boys, Led Zepelin, The Rolling Stones and others," said Flood.
The event will include a guitar concert and a friendly guitar performance competition including awards. Guitar players that would like to play should contact Flood at (620) 330-0675. Also being planned are guitar exhibits, shows and more. In addition to the guitar event, a songwriters workshop is being planned in the afternoon. More about this and all of the activities will be posted on the Kansas Celebrity Hall of Fame Facebook page. The event will be entertaining for guitar players, guitar enthusiasts and concert goers of all ages.
