Jerry is a veteran broadcaster who started his career in 1988 and he produces and voices hundreds of radio commercials each year. Jerry got the guitar bug at age 14 when got his first guitar for Christmas in December of 1985 (a Harmony Strat style burst with a mini Harmony amp) that his parents ordered from a Sears catalog. He played on and off for years and got busy with life and family. Years later his wife asked him to join the church worship band and he quickly jumped back into the guitar game and has been playing ever since. Jerry is a big fan of Joe Bonamassa, Greg Koch, Joe Walsh, Samantha Fish, Ace Frehley, and Keith Richards. Jerry has spent many years buying, selling, and trading guitars, amps, and pedals in Northeast Ohio through Craig's List and Reverb. Jerry had a dream to build the kind of guitar show that he always wanted to attend. Jerry grew up on the west side of Cleveland, but now lives in Massillon with his wife Debbie and their 3 year old daughter. Jerry can be heard playing his Telecaster most Sundays at Faith Community Fellowship in Massillon.
Jamie grew up in Maple Heights and got the guitar bug at age 13. He started taking lessons at Music Manor (Yep, the same shop where Dr.Z started making his amps...no joke) and he played a sunburst Hondo. Like many boys his age he painted it with stripes to resemble one of his heroes EVH. Jamie has been attending guitar shows for over 13 years and has spent the last 9 years as a vendor "J&L Guitars". Jamie is a big fan of classic rock and old school metal. Some of his favorite players are Joe Bonamassa, Ritchie Blackmore, Joe Satriani, Ace Frehley and SRV. Jamie loves everything about guitar shows, the nostalgia, the camaraderie among the dealers, and the shared love of music and guitar. Jamie lives in Rootstown with his wife Lana and his daughter.
