GUITAR GODDESS MAGAZINE LAUNCH PARTY by Denise Vasquez

The other day I received a private invitation via email to attend the GUITAR GODDESS MAGAZINE LAUNCH PARTY...

How could I refuse...

GUITAR...

GODDESS...

MAGAZINE...

The invitation had me with those three words!

I read on...

Honoring Tish Ciravolo Founder Of Daisy Rock Guitars...

"IT'S ABOUT TIME" I thought to myself! Finally... someone is recognizing all that Tish has done for the community!

Something inside told me, I had to be there...

I replied to the invitation in hopes that they still had room for me & to my delight, my RSVP was confirmed!

As the Red Carpet arrivals began at 7pm, I wanted to arrive early, in hopes of meeting those involved with GUITAR GODDESS MAGAZINE before the party started.

Surprisingly we did not hit as much traffic as I had anticipated for a Friday night in Los Angeles, and we arrived at approximately 6:45 pm.

I LOVE being early, and we were embraced with warm, open arms and hearts by the GUITAR GODDESS MAGAZINE family!!!

Right from the start I felt right at home, was overwhelmed with a sense of excitement, and anticipation for what's to come!

I had the pleasure of meeting & connecting with Ezina Leblanc in the "Ladies Room"...we had such a GREAT conversation with no regard to where we were...We spoke of Female guitarists, spirituality, community, and Tish Ciravolo of Daisy Rock Guitars...When I spoke of What Tish meant to me, how & why I joined the Daisy Rock family, Ezina said "We have to get you on stage to say something about Tish, would you do that?" Absolutely!

My boyfriend Randy Martinez was with me...he was in awe of all the Gibson Guitars that surrounded us...The launch party was held in the Gibson showroom in Beverly Hills...

I was in awe of everyone & everything in that room...

The energy in the room was VERY powerful~ uplifting, positive, warm...

As I looked around to see who was in the room, I noticed there was a small group of people...a VERY SPECIAL small group of people...I felt privileged to be amongst the few that were invited to this very intimate, very special gathering!!! I recognized a few faces who have been in the music community for a long time...and was happy to reconnect with some & make the acquaintance of everyone in attendance!

Tish Ciravolo was Honored with THE GUITAR GODDESS TRAILBLAZER AWARD

She sooooooo deserves this & soooo much more!

They invited me up to speak & I was happy to share what Tish means to me...

I remember when I first met Tish...years ago, I was looking for a guitar company to endorse...I had a few in mind, but I was still shopping for the right fit...I was working at Day Jams Music Camp as an art instructor, when Tish Ciravolo from Daisy Rock Guitars came in & donated guitars for the children! I can not even begin to describe the look on each childs' face as they were handed their new guitar, all I knew is that this was the Guitar Company I had been looking for, this was the kind of company I wanted to work with! Tish has such a BEAUTIFUL, GIVING spirit, has given soooo much to schools, camps, charities, artists...and she has opened up soooo many doors for not only young female guitarists, but for female guitarist of all ages! She has created a much needed community for us female musicians & she is the epitome of what I aspire to create with my WO+MEN 4 A CAUSE! My motto has always been TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE and Tish has shown us that we truly can...anything is possible if we BELIEVE!!!

The rest of the evening was filled with AMAZING performances by Janet Robin, Viva DeConichi & Absinthe...

Along with incredible conversations on what's to come with GUITAR GODDESS MAGAZINE!
