I've been in the new location now for a little over 3 months. Everything is shaping up nicely. I can't wait to come in, turn on the lights and start up one of my awesome playlists to be heard through my mindblowingly incredible Gallo acoustic speakers. That is probably the one thing that gives me the most pleasure while I'm working, besides the space itself (and of course my clients). For those of you who haven't heard the story, I won the speakers. I had the same speakers at home and lost them in a fire. I ordered my replacement speakers directly from the company via phone, as there was not a local outlet to buy them at the time.
I told them my story about how I picked the speakers in a local stereo shop listening room bringing my own CD's and cranking it out until I was satisfied after listening to Public Enemy, Miles Davis, The Mavericks and Pavement and said that they still sounded great 16 years later until they were firehosed in my living room. I loved them so much, that I wouldn't settle for anything else. They shipped the new speakers to me and I fell in love all over again.
Maybe 3 months later, I got an email from them saying "like us on Facebook for a chance to win". Well, this is not something I take lightly. I only LIKE things that I really like and want to support or follow. Businesses that belong to relatives of friends, bands I've never seen and the like are not something I'm interested in. But Gallo? I LOVE them. And I won.
My friend Jim K. a self proclaimed AV nerd hooked up my new replacement speakers at my house and offered to do the same when I moved the salon. Next time you're in the salon, take a moment to enjoy the great sounding music as well as the generous help of Jim K for the installation which he did all for the price of a pizza.
