We took a ride through Ventura to visit some of our 2015 partners and supporters. First stop was 1927 Barber Shop at 1927 Main Street. Owner, Josh Gates treated me to a first class wet shave and haircut. By wet shave, I mean I got a beer with it which was pretty sweet. Their playlist fit right in to the Roadshow Revival lineup (Hank III, Rockabilly, Surf, and some Punk Rock). Conversation ranged from topics like cars, bikes, surf, skate, to some utter nonsense that had me giggling like a school girl. Bunch of good dudes that cut hair the way you want it over at 1927.
Second stop was Instrumental Music over at 3171 E. Main Street. New store manager DJPJ has done a great job re-branding the business. They’ve got a great selection of gear and offer all sorts of music lessons to accomodate beginners to advanced players.
Sales associate Jessie (pictured below with ukulele) gave me a quick lesson on this compact, fun little instrument. IM has a huge selection of reasonably priced ukuleles for any of you who are interested.
Next stop was Rocket Fizz Ventura at 105 S. Oak Street. If you like specialty candy and soda Rocket Fizz will satisfy that sweet tooth. In addition a plethora of sweet goodies, they’ve got tons of unique and nostalgic toys and posters. Owner Jack Dempsey has done a great job with the Rocket Fizz brand and his customers always leave with a smile.
Last but not least, Ventura Harley-Davdison which is actually in Camarillo. No problem. It was worth the ride. Ventura Harley-Davidson combines all the amenities of a twenty-first century Harley-Davidson dealership with the good old-fashioned feel of a motorcycle shop. You’ll find the staff friendly, fair, straight-dealing and at your service with ample inventory. Raymond and Dan (pictured below) were very helpful and happy to answer any of our questions. Definitely a great place to visit if you’re in the market for a bike, Harley servicing or some riding gear.
