Back to All Events


Its that time of year again, time for the annual Kauer Guitars Open House Food-Music-Beer-Gear-a-Palooza!!! For those of you who haven't been, this is our annual open house. While it is at our shop, it's not a Kauer customer only event, everyone is welcome. Great music, food and beer all day. Family, dogs (on a leash prefered) and of course kids are welcome! No tickets are needed.

Time: June 8th 2019
10am - 6pm

9864 Dino Dr #6
Elk Grove, CA 95624

Food this year again is going to be provided by the The Squeeze Inn Truck. Bring cash or credit, lunch is usually around 10-12 dollars per person from the truck. It's worth every cent, last year there was a two hour period where everyone was too full to talk or play music!

THE SQUEEZE TRUCK WILL ONLY BE THERE FROM 12-4PM ONLY. If you show up after 4, you'll be on your own for food!

If you'd like to bring something to share, we certainly won't opposed to that!

This years beer will likely be from Waterman Brewery. We'll have some kegs on hand and they are just the next building over if we run out.

The Jam:
Goes all day, run mostly by our friend and cohort Dave (bluesmandave) and it's always a blast. Again, you don't have to play a Kauer (but we really like it if you do). Bass players and drummers ESPECIALLY WELCOME. We will have the PA, drums and bass rig provided and plenty of amps on hand if you don't want to bring one.

If you want to play as a band, we're ok with that under the following conditions:
1. Plan on 2-3 songs.
2. You don't get an hour to sound check, tear down our gear and put yours up. Really, if you can't get up there and be making music in 15 minutes or so, it's not worth it.
3. Your drummer, bass player ect may get "volunteered" to help with the jam.
4. Kauer customer bands will get a little extra special treatment.

***Anyone willing to be the house drummer and bass player all day we will buy lunch for!***

Raffle prizes?
A Kauer Guitar or two for starters. Maybe some Titan's again this year. We usually have great stuff from our friends and supporters, JHS, Mono, Wolfetone, Stringdog and more. We usually make a couple special things for it ;)

Need overnight accommodations? There are two hotels not more than 10 minutes from the shop AND right next to a bunch of food (in-n-out included). Here:


Those are the two most convenient accommodations.

Sacramento International Airport (SMF) is the closest airport and Uber / Lyft both are active in the area.
