"So you get all these dream instruments that you want, expensive, fragile, so precious to you - how do you protect them in transit, when you're heading to you next gig? The answer is: Reunion Blues. Made of either highly durable leather or ballistic fabric, since 1976, Reunion Blues instrument bags have upstaged the rest with unsurpassed luxury and functionality. With their rugged construction, a precise fit, and convenient features, these bags protect every inch. They're some of the most durable bags I have ever seen but, they're as stylish as they are safe. I can't tell you how many times I was asked about what kind of cases these are and told how hot they look. I love to show them off when I walk around the city to my next local gig or go on tour. Thank you, Michelle and everybody at Reunion Blues for making me a part of the family!"
