Good Voodoo

More than 300 people joined headliner Gary Hoey to celebrate the opening of Wild West Guitars’ VooDoo Lounge in Riverside, California, on April 2.

The VooDoo Lounge—the “vibey” section of the Wild West Guitars retail store—is a spectacular venue designed primarily for clinics, customer appreciation parties, and manufacturer promotions. John 5 (right, with Wild West’s Jim Lovingood) showed up to help celebrate and represent Marshall amplifiers, and reps from companies such as Gibson, PRS, Suhr, Fender, Ernie Ball, G&L, Parker, Dean, Bad Cat, and Bogner partied down, as well.
