Dan Thompson named Manchester Town Troubadour

We're so proud of Guinea Pig guitarist and founding member Dan Thompson, who was recently named the first Town Troubadour for the town of Manchester CT.

We appreciate Dan's tasty guitar playing, dedication to live music, and effects pedal addiction - it's wonderful to see him getting recognition. We expect invites to all the prestigious troubadour events and ceremonies!

Dan got some press for this achievement, at the Journal Inquirer, the Manchester Patch, and the Reminder News.
