Driving Directions 

SF Guitarworks invites you to Sound Pursuits, a series of intimate open house events that make the wealth of knowledge in our local music community easily accessible. On hand at each event will be local music industry professionals, offering diverse perspectives in guitar repair, guitar building, sound recording, and musicianship. This event will be limited to 75 people so sign up soon.

Here's our evening lineup for our September 20th open house:

On our beautiful outdoor patio—

  • 6:00pm–7:15pm  Andy Freeman from Bay Area Tone will be doing a recording demo with his mobile rig. He will record Captain Casual playing the new Luttrell Guitarworks electric guitars. The band will play a few songs, then Andy will explain how he set up the equipment, what he is doing during recording and what preparation he recommends doing before hand. He'll playback some of the band's newly-recorded tracks on his system and take questions. Then the band will continue their set.

Captain Casual, The greatest band in the entire universe - two years in a row!, is a trio featuring Andrew Goberman on guitar and vocals, and for this engagement, Kenny Owen, drums, and Tim Wagar, bass.  The band plays "Smooth blues, from the Brill Building to the backwoods,"  from the Shangri-Las to Muddy Waters, Mose Allison, Jimmy Reed and more.
