Hey everyone, I wanted to share some pretty exciting news that Hard Rock shared with me during SXSW 2012. This breaking news is definitely something worth waiting for and getting antsy about. Hard Rock Hotel’s “Sound of your Stay” music lounge at SXSW had me bursting with excitement, and I’m sure after reading this you will be pretty excited as well if you are a fellow music lover.
This month, as part of Broader Music Amenity Program for the fall of 2012, Hard Rock Hotels and Casinos will officially announce its one of a kind, complimentary “Picks” Fender guitar room service. That’s right, every Hard Rock property worldwide has partnered with Fender, after a 33-year relationship to deliver the most rockin’ electric guitar experience to every guest in every room for the duration of their stay with Hard Rock! Eric Clapton may have started something when he donated his red Fender Lead II to the original Hard Rock Cafe’ in London, becoming the first piece of memorabilia in Hard Rock’s now extensive collection. Now, Hard Rock would now like to share a piece of their history and collection with you.
Learn your favorite songs or nail some power chords in the privacy and comfort of your room on any of the twenty distinct models from Stratocaster to Telecaster to Precision Jass or Jazz bass guitars. After you have picked out your favorite instrument, you will be provided a Fender Mustang floor amp and high-performance Soul by Ludacris headset so that you can rock out as hard and as loud as you wish with zero noise or complaints!
As if that deal weren’t sweet enough on its own, Hard Rock went the extra mile to also give you a list of websites and apps PLUS a special in-room T.V. channel featuring complimentary video lessons from beginner to advanced, from the worlds largest music
publisher, Hal Leonard.
the “Sound of your stay,” the individualized and interactive ultimate musical experience.
And for the cherry on top of this amazing adventure, Hard Rock would also like to invite their guests to enjoy a music and wine pairing. Wines will vary from reds to whites and again, are all part of this package deal, free of charge beginning in the fall of 2012.
So, if any of this excitement has caught your attention, please fell free to set up a vacation (or jam fest!) at any of Hard Rocks 173 venues in 53 countries, with 15 hotel casinos. You can also go to www.hardrockhotels.com for the hotel/casinos, or for Hard
