Ovation Hits the Road with Roundback Revolution Road Shows

Ovation will be hosting events across the country this fall

Multiple Locations (September 10, 2010) -- Ovation’s Roundback Revolution is hitting the road to give roundback loyalists and acoustic fans alike the chance to get to know the guitars up close and personal. Representatives from the Ovation factory will be on hand to present the history of the roundback along with the Ovation innovations that changed the shape of music.

Also, attendees have the opportunity to perform in an “Acoustic Showcase” and get the chance to win $5000 in gear, have their performance featured on, and take home a T-shirt and set of Fender strings.

All attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a custom Ovation from the company's New Hartford, CT workshop ($5000 value). Attendees are also encouraged to bring their acoustic guitar for a string change, courtesy of Fender Strings. All attendees will also get access to a song book featuring tab from some of Ovations top acoustic artists through the years, courtesy of Premier Guitar and Guitar Edge.

The events will also include sales specials (Roundback Rollbacks), product demos, giveaways, and more. In addition, Ovation will be showing off one-of-a-kind custom guitars from their factory vault…all available for sale.

Ovation’s Roundback Revolution will be at the following locations for September and October:

The accomplished guitarist and teacher’s new record, like her lifestyle, is taut and exciting—no more, and certainly no less, than is needed.

Molly Miller, a self-described “high-energy person,” is fully charged by the crack of dawn. When Ischeduled our interview, she opted for the very first slot available—8:30 a.m.—just before her 10 a.m. tennis match!

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard started out as a “joke” band. As guitarist/songwriter Joey Walker says with a grin, “Now the joke’s on us.”

With their 26th release, Flight b741, the prog-rockers make it hard but highly rewarding for fans to keep up. Behind that drive lies a wealth of joy, camaraderie, and unwavering commitment to their art.

There’s a dangerous, pernicious myth, seemingly spread in perpetuity among fledgling artists and music fans alike, that when you’re a musician, inspiration—and therefore productivity—comes naturally. Making art is the opposite of work, and, conversely, we know what happens to Jack when there’s all work and no play. But what happens when the dimensions of work and play fuse together like time and space? What happens to Jack then? Well, behind such an instance of metaphysical reaction, undoubtedly, would be King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
