A Unique Venue in the Heart of Saskatoon

posted by Trusted    |   April 23, 2014 14:21

There are a lot of great things happening in the cool urban space of Village Guitar & Amp Co., your Trusted Saskatoon live music venue, event space, and music store. Keep reading for more on the many hats worn by this great local Saskatoon spot. 

Guitars & Amps

Village Guitar & Amp Co. is a boutique shop that opened in 2011, in the ever-growing, vibrant & trendy Riversdale area of Saskatoon. The atmosphere is probably the best thing about the store. It’s a change in its west side neighborhood, walking into something that’s so big city. It’s got a really good cosmopolitan feel to it, and is definitely the place to come if you have a broken guitar or if you are looking for that special amp. When people first come in, they look surprised, as they weren’t expecting the lovely exposed brick work and wood features. Most people just walk around the store and look up at everything. It’s a buffet for the eyes. There’s so much to look at for musicians and non-musicians alike! Besides the gear, and the quality of the gear, it’s the knowledge of the team. There’s not really an attitude at VGA- you can get help as soon as you walk in. There’s somebody at the door when you get there and you are made to feel comfortable and welcomed!

Village Guitar & Amp Co. is a refreshing addition to Saskatoon's music industry. Not only does it present a quality alternative to the hustle and bustle and sub-par service of some of the larger music retailers in the city, but it is also a great venue for small shows and local events.

Shows 

Haven’t heard about the live shows at Village Guitar & Amp?

Well, if you haven’t been yet, make sure you get to one- you are in for a treat! Only the best quality musicians make the grade at this venue.

VGA is fully licensed and has local beer on tap. We suggest you buy tickets early, as space is limited to just over 100 people. This makes for a really exclusive and intimate experience that performers LOVE!
