In The Shop With: Pat Capocci
We just had the pleasure of hosting Australian guitarist Pat Capocci and his girl Chloe for a few days of fun and picking in the desert. Pat came over to make his first U.S. appearance at the Viva Las Vegas #17 festival in April. He recently signed with Wild Records in LA so the gig in Vegas gave him the opportunity to record his next project while in the U.S., and come out to our place for a little R&R as well.
TK has known Pat for a number of years from playing on the same bill at festivals in Europe and when he played in Australia a few years ago with Big Sandy. If you follow our blog, you’ve seen that TK has modified Pats guitars, made custom pickups for him and he’s been using our guitar accessories for a long time. We’re proud that such a talented young player wants to be Smith equipped. As we always try to do when anyone comes for a visit, they sat down and did a little iPhone recording on a Sunday afternoon.

We had a great time hanging out with Pat and Chloe in Pioneertown, Joshua Tree National Park and Palm Springs.
