Fred & Dinah Gretsch Celebrate Wedding Anniversary and 130th Gretsch Anniversary

Posted:

Several Gretsch fans, friends, family members and business associates converged on Randy Wood’s Pickin’ Parlor in Bloomingdale, Ga., earlier this month to celebrate the company’s 130th anniversary.

But the March 4 party was also celebrating the wedding anniversary of Fred and Dinah Gretsch, marking a truly joyous event.

A few artists were on hand, as well.

The husband-and-wife team of Richard Smith and Julie Adams got the musical festivities started, with Smith showing off his fingerpicking prowess as Adams accompanied him on the cello.

Joe Robinson was up next, and his set with bassist Marcelo Bakos and drummer Tito Pascoali offered a diverse offering of original music highlighting the Australian-born phenom’s guitar heroics.

They didn’t have much time in the abbreviated time slot that the South by Southwest music festival typically allows, but the indie rockers fit a lot into their set.

At one point, the energy was so high that singer Mikel Jollett even climbed to the top of the scaffolding to deliver the anthemic “Does This Mean You’re Moving On?” off their self-titled debut. (more…)
