Russo Music’s grand opening includes a gear raffle to benefit Girls Rock Philly, Beyond The Bars and more
Regional instrument retailer Russo Music will formally open the doors to its new Philly location later this month, after teasing the shop’s homey interior and ultra-convenient next-door-to-Union-Transfer location through a series of video sessions with artists like Frances Quinlan, Anika Pyle, and Maxwell Stern.
Grand Opening day is set from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 18th, and in addition to free guitar re-strings and snare drum re-heads while supplies last, Russo is also running a charity raffle to support three local music-minded nonprofits.
Visitors to the store can support Girls Rock Philly, Rock to the Future, and Beyond The Bars — three organizations who work in music, education, community-building, and centering marginalized individuals — by purchasing raffle tickets, and in the process get a chance to win a variety of prize packs featuring guitars, effect pedals, synthesizers, concert tickets and more.
