[Video] Guitar Center in Brooklyn Opens Serato DJ Section

Posted 2 years ago by

The new Guitar Center superstore in Brooklyn, NYC hosted an event last month on October 24th to unveil a brand new 2500 square-foot section of the store that is completely dedicated to the Serato DJ experience. On hand to host the red-carpet event at the Brooklyn store was none other than world famous artist and DJ Biz Markie (pictured with the VP of Guitar Center). Those on hand at the event were able to use all of the different products in the Serato DJ lineup while also being able to chop it up with some other famous guests that happened to stop by.

It's pretty cool to see a huge music store devote such a large section to the Serato DJ brand and lots of different stars who came out to support, sign autographs, and connect with fans. This was obviously a successful event, and they may even follow this up with other stores also installing a Serato DJ section. Check out the press release below for more details on the event and be sure to check out the Serato DJ section if you're near the Brooklyn Guitar Center.
