Our customer of the day Is Frank Murdoch. He and his band, Stokavski have moved to Melbourne to blow some minds. They are a Trad-Balkan-Punk-Roots extravaganza. He needed a guitar to add to the big 5 piece sound and bought a wonderful gig ready Alvarez. Their first Melbourne gig is at Bar Open on April the 7th. So if you love crazy Balkan music you know where to be. Knock 'em dead Frank!
