Willie's Guitars celebrates 20th anniversary with special guests
Steve Cohen

On Wednesday night, the Cabooze hosted a star-studded 20th anniversary party for legendary local shop Willie's American Guitars, which has gained notoriety over the years for its celebrity clientele that ranges from the Beastie Boys and Green Day to Neil Young, the Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen. Sure enough, there were plenty of "special guests" on hand for their anniversary bash, and Steve Cohen was on hand to capture these images of the evening.
