Colorado Music Gear Swap Meet takes over Cervantes

By all accounts, the first installment of the Colorado Music Gear Swap Meet at Cervantes yesterday was a success. The two-level venue was buzzing with activity through most of the afternoon as vendors and gearheads alike made conversation, purchases and trades of everything from keytars to sitars. Vendors included well known local music shops like Rupp's Drums and Kolacny Music, as well as specialized shops like Broken String Guitars -- whose owner, Chris Nasca, came up from Salida to display his vintage wares. The event also offered a chance for amp and instrument repair specialists, non-profit music organizations and sound engineers a chance to connect with musicians in the community, and the six-dollar door price was donated to local independent radio station KGNU. We caught up with a handful of patrons and vendors to take a peek at what sorts of items and services were being picked up at the Sunday afternoon swap.
