Gretsch-mania invaded Los Angeles on August 28 when Gretsch Drums and Gibraltar Hardware recently presented “An Evening With Steve Ferrone and Fred Gretsch” at West LA Music. The event was held at West LA’s amphitheater on Santa Monica Boulevard and featured Ferrone’s band Macdracula and a meet and greet with Gretsch Company president, Fred Gretsch. More than 200 consumers and Gretsch fanatics attended, including popular comedian Sinbad. Following the performance and presentation, Ferrone and Gretsch mingled with attendees and signed autographs.
