Gibson Guitar and Epiphone are pleased to announce the return of the Gibson Summer Jam at the Gibson Custom Shop factory on July 23rd. Gibson Summer Jam 2011 will take place during Summer NAMM.

Activities will include exclusive access to exciting new Gibson and Epiphone products, amazing live music and many more surprises you don’t want to miss. The event is free and open to the public, but you must RSVP at

Along with a unique opportunity for attendees to experience firsthand some of the latest models and products from Gibson Custom, Gibson USA, Epiphone, Gibson Acoustic and Gibson Gear, the Gibson Summer Jam 2011 will feature performances by an array of amazing artists:

Headlining this year’s Summer Jam is Bachman & Turner. After reuniting for the first time in more than 20 years, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner – musicians at the heart of legendary band Bachman-Turner Overdrive – continue to thrill fans around their world with their power-driven tunes. The duo released a self-titled album in 2010 featuring all original new tracks penned by the pair, including “Rollin’ Along,” “Slave to the Rhythm” and “Moonlight Rider.” Their new material has a sound that fits seemlessly alongside Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s monster anthems “Takin’ Care of Business” and “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet.” For news and tour dates, visit

The Summer Jam talent does not end there. Other artists slated to perform throughout the day include Gary Clark Jr. , Johnny A. with Dixie Peach, The Kicks, 3 Pill Morning, A Friend Called Fire, and a special appearance by The Dudes—a dynamic act comprised of gold-selling artist Keith Anderson and some of Nashville’s most respected players, including Eddie Perez, Chad Warrix, Keio Stroud, and Robby Wilson.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase from Hard Rock Café and Jack Daniels.

There will also be opportunities to win guitars from Gibson USA, Gibson Acoustic, Epiphone and items from Gibson Gear
