“Guitars not Guns” Holds Guitar Raffles

For the past several years I have been a huge fan of the non-profit Guitars Not Guns (  This is a really great organization that goes out into the community and sets up guitar programs for at-risk youth, providing them with instruments and instruction.  Students who pass their beginner’s class are awarded a guitar to keep.  Many of us who grew up with music in our lives can probably paint a scenario where things may have gone differently had we not had a constructive hobby.  The kids that GnG helps have limited opportunity; they are surrounded by all sorts of negative influences that can easily put their future at risk.  For these kids, positive role models and a productive activity in their lives can make all the difference.

GnG is an all volunteer organization that is funded by private donations and raffling off merchandise that is generously donated by manufacturers, dealers and distributors who support their cause.  This June, in partnership with the Columbia Pike Blues Festival and Del Rey Music Festival, GnG will be raffling off two fantastic instruments; one generously provided by Brazen Guitars ( and Saint Blues Guitar Workshop (

The great news is that anyone can support this great organization and have a shot at one of these fine instruments by purchasing some raffle tickets online; simply click on one of the links below.  The guitar will be shipped free of charge to the winner anywhere in the United States.

The Saint Blues guitar being raffled is one of their White Lightning models, shown in the picture to the right:

Brazen Guitars has donated something extra special this year – a Brazen Fantasy Deluxe that is autographed by one of my absolute favorite guitarists – Caleb Quaye (Elton John, Hookfoot, Hall & Oates, and referred to by Eric Clapton as the greatest guitarist in the world).  The Brazen Fantasy Deluxe is shown in the picture below.
