Cars and rock and roll go together like bread and butter. Drivers jam their favorite tunes as they motor down the highway, and music is a must in any garage or workspace. Both automobiles and rock and roll represent freedom, individuality and good times.
The Grand Opening celebration of the new NAPA Auto Parts Ontario store in the Los Angeles area this Friday blends cars and music in rock star style. The event includes an appearance by rock icon Nikki Sixx, the founding member of rock band Mötley Crüe and host of nationally syndicated radio program Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx.
NAPA Auto Parts invites Southern California locals to stop by the new NAPA Auto Parts location Friday, August 16, at 4:00 p.m. Along with his radio co-host Kerri Kasem, Sixx will bring live rock and roll to the event with an acoustic performance by Platinum-selling Texas rock band Blue October before the band releases its seventh studio album “Sway” next week.
Timothy Brown, general manager for NAPA in Los Angeles, explained what makes the NAPA Ontario location special.
For NAPA customers, the distribution center means a vast inventory of parts, well beyond the stock of a typical auto parts store. With more parts in stock, NAPA Auto Parts Ontario has everything you need on hand so you don’t have to wait. A rock and roll fan, Brown is excited to see Nikki Sixx and friends this Friday.
“I”m definitely a rock and roll fan,” Brown explained. “I graduated from high school in 1985, and that was right in Mötley Crüe’s heyday.”
The Grand Opening of the NAPA Ontario store is free and open to the public, but fans of Nikki Sixx can get special access. Just make any $20 purchase at NAPA Auto Parts Ontario from now until the event, while supplies last, and you’ll get two special VIP wristbands for a chance to meet Sixx and have a photo taken with the rock star.
Sixx Sense is heard on more than 100 stations worldwide. Sixx discusses music and lifestyle topics and gives listeners a backstage look at the world of rock and roll and the mind of a rock star. And of course, Sixx Sense includes a superb playlist that provides a great soundtrack for listeners, whether you’re behind the wheel or on a creeper wrenching on your favorite car or truck.
Join us this Friday for a Grand Opening event worthy of a rock star.
