Sunday, August 13 LAEMMLE LIVE welcomes McCabes Guitar Shop for a free pop-up celebration of all things guitar, banjo, ukulele and harmonica. McCabe's renowned teachers and students share their musical wit and wisdom with lively performances and demos. Hosted by Head of Music School Denny Croy at the Monica Film Center.

It began in 1958. Furniture designer Gerald McCabe repaired guitars for his folk-singer wife’s musician friends who had no local music store. Gerald and his friend Ed Kahn decided to open a small music shop on Pico Blvd in Santa Monica. They began repairing instruments, selling folk music books and records, carrying Mexican guitars and old banjos. Word spread and local musicians began hanging out, relishing one of the only guitar shops in the Southern California area. One of those young musicians was Bob Riskin. Bob started as an employee in 1960. In the early 60’s lessons and classes were added. In 1969 McCabe’s began presenting live concerts. Bob Riskin became sole owner in 1986. Bob and his wife Espie are still running McCabe’s today! Over the years, musicians from all aspects of the musical spectrum, gifted amateurs to seasoned professionals have come to appreciate McCabe's friendly, knowledgeable sales staff, expert repair shop and world class teaching staff.
