Richard Ash, GC Pro Eastern Region, Business Development, having
recently relocated to Nashville, had a key role in planning and
overseeing the Nashville event, and took the opportunity to interact
with prominent members of the Nashville pro audio community.“These
events were all an enormous success,” stated GC Pro Director Rick
Plushner. “We are always looking for ways to say ‘thank you’ to our
loyal customers, and the pro audio communities from each region turned
out in large numbers to partake in great food, great entertainment and
great company. More than a few took advantage of our special
one-day-only deals to pick up some gear they’d had their eyes on for
some time. The response was great, and we look forward to holding
similar events in the future.”For more information, please visit www.gcpro.com. Photo File 1: GCPro_BBQ_Photo1.JPGPhoto Caption 1: Attendees of GC Pro’s Nashville barbecue event, standing in line for complimentary catered food.Photo File 2: GCPro_BBQ_Photo2.JPGPhoto
