Despite it raining throughout the evening, the finals of the 2017 Anything Goes Guitar Playoff were Hot Hot Hot!
For the third year running we hosted the Bloemfontein “Anything Goes Guitar Playoff” to find and crown the best guitarists in the Bloemfontein area. Each year the competition gets a little tougher as more guitarists enter. This year saw some amazing talent take to the stage. Picking a winner is never an easy affair, but after some tough deliberation we chose the winners.
