2016 Gibson Homecoming

Recommended Posts

11th Annual Gibson Homecoming

June 8–11, 2016

Bozeman, MT

 

The 2016 Gibson Homecoming will be held on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, June 8 -11, 2016 in Bozeman, Montana. Many of our events will be held at the Gran Tree Inn.

 

The Gibson Homecoming is a gathering of independent Gibson enthusiasts who will informally gather in Bozeman to meet others who share their love of Gibson acoustic guitars. Although the Gibson Homecoming is not officially sponsored by Gibson Acoustic or Music Villa, both are highly supportive of the event and are involved in the programming.

 

Hotel reservations can be made by contacting the Gran Tree Inn at 1-800-624-5865. A reduced room rate of $129 + tax per night is available (standard: queen, king and 2-queen beds). Suites are also available at an increased cost. Please contact the Gran Tree for the suite rate. In order to receive the reduced rate, you must give them the group name of "Gibson Homecoming" or “group number 807285”.

 

Availability is limited, so it is recommended that you register early. If the Gran Tree fills up, there are other hotels in the Bozeman area, but that is their busy time of the year, so register early in either case. The Gran Tree has a website at http://www.bestwestern.com/grantreeinn. The hotel has a restaurant, lounge, casino and indoor pool. There is also an airport shuttle service available.

 

Bozeman does have a commercial airport, so it is possible to fly into Bozeman if you do not wish to drive. Car rentals are available at the airport. However, if you don’t wish to rent a car, the Gran Tree has a shuttle bus that regularly runs to the airport. In the past there have been enough participants with transportation, so it is usually possible to catch a ride to the events which are not held at the Gran Tree. Some of the events are held at Gibson Montana and Music Villa (http://www.musicvilla.com/) and these locations are not within walking distance of the Gran Tree. It is suggested that you make these arrangements in advance with the other participants.

Our event schedule has not been finalized at this time, but our tentative schedule is as follows:

 

Acoustic Guitar Clinic by Tony Polecastro

Tour of Bridger Brewing Company

Tour of Kevin Kopp’s Guitar Shop (http://www.kevinkopp.com/)

Tour of Waverly Manufacturing

Tour of Peach Street Studios

Tour of Gibson Acoustic Factory

Two Acoustic “Open Mic” Events

Several Opportunities for Informal Guitar Jam Sessions

Private Concert at Music Villa (http://www.musicvilla.com/)

“Gibson Day” at Music Villa

 

REGISTRATION: There is no registration fee for attending the Gibson Homecoming. However, all personal costs (travel, meals, hotel, etc.) are the responsibility of each individual attending. We may be asking each participant to donate towards the cost of our Hospitality Room at the Gran Tree (where several of our clinics and other events are held) and other expenses. However, depending upon the total number of participants, this cost should be very minimal (approximately $10 each).

 

If you would like to attend, please send an e-mail to guitarstrmr@aol.com with the number of slots requested, names of individuals attending, address, and an e-mail address so that you can be recontacted with updates, as all updates and correspondence will be handled by e-mail.

 

Due to space limitations, registrations will be limited to 40 participants. Anyone registering after we have reached that number will be placed on a waiting list. In the event that we have any cancellations, those people on the waiting list will be contacted in the order that they were placed onto the waiting list to fill any open slots.

 

There are many tourist attractions in the Bozeman area, including Yellowstone National Park. Some past participants have extended their stay in the Bozeman area in order to see some of these attractions. The Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce is a good starting place to learn about some of these attractions. Their website is http://www.bozemancvb.com/.

 

Liability Disclaimer: The Gibson Homecoming is not sponsored by Gibson Montana or Music Villa. It's a group of individuals getting together to celebrate our appreciation of Gibson acoustic guitars and honor the good folks at Gibson Acoustic in Bozeman, Montana. All expenses, including lodging, meals, travel costs, etc., are the personal responsibility of each individual attending. Neither the Homecoming participants, Music Villa, Music Villa employees, Gibson Montana, Gibson employees, nor Gibson Guitar Corporation will be responsible for the acts of other parties, including but not limited to, any expenses, or liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, incidental, special or exemplary damages arising out of any actions or activities related or unrelated to this event. In particular, everyone is responsible for keeping an eye on their own instruments and other possessions and for loss or damage to the same.

We still have openings remaining for the 2016 Gibson Homecoming, if you're interested.

 

I'll keep it in mind! I'm not sure I can plan very far ahead for next summer either. Would be really cool!

What's up w/ the price drop for '16 to the '14 spots after the hike in 2015? Reverb Music is saying that they're changing back some models, too. Anybody hearing anything?

Only chance I would get to see this great event(s) is on video - will there be highlights on Youtbe? Maybe Tony and Music Villa will do that - hope so [unsure]

 

I live in Yorkshire too, so that makes two of us missing out...
