This story started off so terrible, but ended with one very happy musician!
Canadian Singer/songwriter Danny Michel was at Park Place in Barrie while transferring equipment between cars at the Telsa charging station, and left his guitar there.
After realizing what happened, Michel took to social media asking for help, which was shared by more than 1,000 people including Great Big Sea’s Alan Doyle.
Bruno Alonzi, owner of Bruno’s Bakery & Cafe said he was picking his wife up from the gym when one minute he saw the 2 men moving things between the cars and the next minute they were gone and he saw a guitar laying on the ground. He did a U-turn and picked it up, only to find a 1963 Gibson.
Fortunately, Bruno saw the post online on the Alcona Chats community Facebook page, and contacted Michel with the good news! He went to the Bakery to pick up his guitar on Thursday, played a few songs, and bought everyone pastries!
Danny said “To find out that (Alonzi) picked it up and returned it to me, knowing how valuable it was is just incredible. We live in a crazy world right now and we need stories like this more than ever.”
