About Theory Thursday

TheoryThursday is made up of five dudes... Dave Gifford animator, Glenn Hood Executive Producer, Dave Wright of SWR Productions aka "Kathulo" is our Live engineer, David Carano for inspiration, Jason Thomas is our cohost, & Mike Ruggirello as our host.

The model that Mike came up is to use his existing endorsements (Mad Hatter Guitar Products, Curt Mangan Strings & Iconic Guitars) to share the show simultaneously which allows us to GROW exponentially. Currently collaborating with Taylor Guitar’s once a month.

Guests of TheoryThursday get incredible exposure and can help propel artists to achieve gigs, endorsements, and even rad schwagg from us. Going LIVE is the way engage the audience. Stay tuned and subscribe to FaceBook, YouTube, and PATREON.
