Is your email inbox impossibly clogged due to  spam or a constant stream of email newsletters you never subscribed to?

Well, with the recent migration of the webmail service Hotmail to Outlook.com, it should be easier to manage your inbox with the new Sweep feature.

In a recent commercial for Outlook.com, the system was shown to be helpful to a musician who wanted to maximize his shredding time.  With a few clicks, he was able to delete a ton of unwanted emails and continue playing guitar.

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.

After a brief break Robinson and Smith teamed up for an impromptu jam session, as the musicians took turns taking the lead on their Gretsch guitars.  A finale of the Chet Atkins instrumental was certainly a crowd favorite.

To view a photo album of the event, click here, and watch Fred Gretsch address the audience in the videos below, in addition to performance footage of Robinson and Smith.
