Guitarist Lance's business is rocking
7:40am Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
LANCE Perkins has been in rock bands since the age of 15 when he first stepped out on stage as lead guitarist in Medusa at Evesham Public Hall nearly 35 years ago.
Since then he’s been in various bands such as Wrathchild, his most recent called Rockit Fuel and now a new venture called Backwater Rebellion, who are just set to launch.
As well as rocking on stage, Lance always used to give time to his mates, teaching them to play guitar and helping them with repairs.
Eighteen years ago he thought he’d have a go at turning this lifelong passion into a business.
As he explains: “The business started in a flat by teaching friends how to play and restring guitars, just for a bit of fun, and eventually it grew into a fully-fledged repair and retail business due to the demand of budding guitar players.”
Guitar Studio is split into two areas, a repair and retail shop.
One fixes guitars that need work or who have been through serious trauma examples include being reversed over by a car or thrown down a flight of stairs!
Lance also takes standard factory guitars to professional quality. The retail shop supplies high quality brand names at great prices and this all comes with a big dollop of brilliant advice from a seasoned local professional.
Trade is going well for Guitar Studio and Lance has even had some famous customers.
He said: “Famous bands and musicians are customers including Dave Hill from Slade, Glen Hughes from Deep Purple, the Answer, Deaf Havana, Kodaline to name but a few, not forgetting all the local bands.
“There are a lot of very talented and enthusiastic musicians in the local area and I have been well supported over the years which has made the business a very exciting and worthwhile place to be.”
