Fresh off a recent tour promoting their newest record, “The Latest,” Cheap Trick performed at the boutique’s grand opening celebration.  At one point John Varvatos jumped on stage and jammed with the band.

Varvatos’ 3,000 square-foot Hard Rock boutique features a stage with top-of-the-line gear for planned events like the opening party, as well as impromptu jam sessions from visiting rockers, stars and shoppers alike. In addition to all three John Varvatos brands (Collection, Star USA and Converse), the new store is the exclusive Nevada dealer of James Trussart guitars. Made from custom shaped metals, these high-end guitars have landed in the hands of well-known collectors such as Billy Gibbons of ZZ-Top, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, and Rick Neilson of Cheap Trick.
