Fort Wayne mega-retailer invites brands, fans to two-day party

WEATHER threatened for most of the 16th annual Sweetwater GearFest, but it was only the earliest arrivals on Day One that caught the brunt of some nasty storms that rumbled through the Greater Fort Wayne, IN area. After the morning deluge, the clouds broke up a bit and thousands turned out for what has become one of the go-to MI-centric events in the US.

Not only do attendees get to sample some of the best gear on the planet from folks like Electro-Harmonix, Morgan Amps, EarthQuaker Devices, PRS Guitars among many more, there are also clinics and other showcases featuring guitar greats like Eric Johnson, Dweezil Zappa and Andy Timmons, just to name a few.
