Guitar Center announced the upcoming induction of multi-platinum and Grammy winning Latin rockers Mana, into the retailers' historic RockWalk. The induction ceremony, which is by invitation only, will take place on Monday, Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. at Guitar Center's Hollywood location on Sunset Boulevard.
"Mana has made a huge impression on the Latin rock scene over the years, that it's only right they take their place on Guitar Center's RockWalk," said Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center's RockWalk. "Guitar Center is committed to supporting and inspiring musicians and we are proud to recognize a group that has made such a contribution to the L.A. community and beyond."
Guitar Center's RockWalk is dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of Rock 'n' Roll, Blues and R&B. As the newest RockWalk inductee, Mana's handprints will reside alongside the handprints, signatures, and faces of other equally accomplished musicians and innovators such as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Van Halen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Run-D.M.C. and Queen, among numerous others.
"It is an honor to be included in such a renowned group of musicians," said Fher Olvera of Mana. "Having our handprints immortalized on Guitar Center's RockWalk will allow us to continue to be a part of Los Angeles – our second home - for generations to come."
