Star-studded  grand opening of rock & roll’s new Hollywood home free to  public

Music  icon Peavey Electronics will host a star-studded grand opening of its first  showroom in Hollywood next weekend, Sept. 1-5, with appearances by comics legend  Stan Lee, guitar virtuoso Alex Skolnick, founder Hartley Peavey and  more.


Located  on Sunset Boulevard’s Guitar Row, Peavey Hollywood gives musicians and music fans a new home in  the heart of rock & roll, with a green-room vibe, high-end gear from the  Peavey family of brands to play, and regular performances from world-class  artists. Peavey is bringing its 47-year legacy of making the amps for music’s  biggest stars and stages to Hollywood with a new showroom, artist relations  headquarters and multimedia dealer education center.

The  grand opening week of Peavey Hollywood will feature comics legend Stan Lee—who  will sign Peavey Marvel electric guitars adorned with Super Hero  graphics—virtuoso guitarist Alex Skolnick (Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio),  L.A.’s Metalachi and Thrown Into Exile, acoustic stylist Monte Montgomery, and  Peavey Electronics founder and CEO Hartley Peavey, who will sign copies of his  biography, The Peavey Revolution (Backbeat Books).

“Peavey  has a long and productive legacy in music and audio, and proactive outreach has  been the key to our success since Hartley Peavey founded the company in 1965,”  said Courtland Gray, Chief Operating Officer of Peavey Electronics Corp. “With  so many artists living in L.A. or passing through on a daily basis, Peavey  Hollywood’s location in the heart of Guitar Row on the Sunset Strip gives us  access to artists and marketing opportunities that will serve Peavey retailers  as well as artists and musicians around the world.”

Peavey  Hollywood is a unique brand experience that will give musicians, audio pros,  systems integrators and music retailers a 360-degree view of the products,  artists and philosophy that have made Peavey an iconic brand in music and audio.  As a high-end retail showcase for Peavey and its affiliated brands— Composite  Acoustics®, Trace Elliot®, Budda® Amplification, Crest Audio®, Architectural  Acoustics® and MediaMatrix®—Peavey Hollywood is designed to create awareness for  Peavey products and the company’s 47-year legacy of  innovation.

Peavey  Hollywood will be an entertainment and informational resource for musicians and  retailers, with regularly scheduled high-definition webcasts featuring artist  interviews and performances, product reviews, and music industry-related tips  for musicians. Peavey will also broadcast sales training to its dealers, with  live-chat capability to enhance the sessions. In addition, the location will  serve as the West Coast home for its substantial and growing roster of artists  and endorsers.

A  section of the showroom is dedicated to the history and philosophy of Hartley  Peavey, the industry’s longest-running founder, sole owner and CEO, who built  his first amplifier as a teenager in 1957 and has earned countless accolades for  his achievements in music product innovation and international business. He  earned his star on the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame in 1990.
