The Tempe History Museum

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

PGS at the Tempe History Museum is an informal, monthly, open-mic style gathering hosted by the Phoenix Guitar Society (PGS). We encourage guitar players of all ages, levels, and styles to gather and share music. Our new monthly meeting space will be hosted in the community room at the Tempe History Museum. A quiet, attentive audience and engaging discussion provide the perfect setting to perform and enjoy guitar music. Please consider joining us the second Sunday of every month between 1:30pm-3:30pm. We look forward to meeting you and hearing you play!
