Monthly.  All guitar styles.  All ages.  All levels.   


COVID-19 has affected all of us in both big and little ways. PGS hopes that everyone is healthy and safe during this difficult time. Unfortunately, our monthly meetings at the Tempe History Museum and all other in-person events have been postponed until further notice. We are saddened that circumstances have come to this and are eager to meet in-person again.

About our monthly meetings:

The Phoenix Guitar Society (PGS) Guest Artist Series at the Tempe History Museum is an informal, monthly, open-mic style gathering. We encourage guitar players of all ages, levels, and styles to gather and share music. Our monthly meeting space is hosted in the Community Room; a quiet, attentive space where the audience can engage in the performance in an intimate setting and enjoy the music. Please join us every second Sunday of the month between 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM at the Tempe History Museum. We start with a performance from our guest artist followed by an open stage where any guitarist from the community is encouraged to perform for a live audience. We look forward to meeting you and hearing you play! 

REMINDER: Monthly meetings at the Tempe History Museum are postponed until further notice. All meetings are held via Zoom.
