NAMM 2017 and Performance at the Mission Engineering Booth
This past weekend I spent five days in California to attend the Winter NAMM trade show. NAMM is a trade show where makers of musical instruments of all kinds show up and showcase their new products in an attempt to create buzz in the media, and sell to new distributers. They also bring some of their artists off their roster to do performances and meet people. I was really lucky to have Prestige Guitars hook me up!
I got to make a ton amazing connections with different musicians, artists, and reps at companies that I really like! It was amazing to be in that kind of atmosphere, where everyone is so incredibly talented, and all of your musical heroes are just walking around like regular people.
I was also lucky to be called on last second to do a performance at the Mission Engineering booth with two players from the Canadian pop singer, Shawn Hook's band! This was huge for me since Mission is an amazing company who's products I have been using for years, but also since performing at NAMM is an honour, since everyone is so talented, and usually only well known, high end players get asked to do it. So it was humbling to say the least, to be asked!
I am excited to hopefully go next year!
