Gear Swap is an event where local musicians can buy, sell and trade music equipment with one another. A variety of equipment from guitar amps and PA systems to drum kits and hardware can be brought to sell, swap, or purchase at Gear Swap.
“It’s also a great place to meet new musicians and build contacts with other bands,” Matt Martinez, host of Open Mic Nights at House of Rock and originator of Gear Swap, said. “We’re always trying to help the music scene build with Open Mic and Local Licks. This is a new resource for bands, new and old, so why not use it.”
According to Martinez, Corpus Christi does not have an event like this and with the growth of the local music scene, it seemed like a perfect fit.
“What a better place than Open Mic. You can buy something new or try it out the same day,” Martinez said.
Gear Swap is a free, all ages event and is open to the public. Open Mic Night is every Tuesday night and Local Licks is held once a month.
