Kent Jones reports:

"We came to California looking for guitar geeks, and we found one. His name is Deke. You know that guy who brings his guitar to school every day? Draws stratocasters all over his notebooks? Names his dogs "Gibson" and "Fender"? Deke Dickerson is the king of that guy. For eight years now this six-string renaissance man has hosted Deke's Guitar Geek Festival in Anaheim. One of the most mind-blowing collections of rock, country, surf, and funk axe-wielders ever to blow off English class. For those about to geek, we salute you."






Many thanks to our generous 2013 sponsors:
