The NAMM Show Day 2

Hello friends and family!  The NAMM Show 2017 day two is complete, and it was another incredible day. This year, the crowds are massive as usual but things seem somehow smoother and even better run overall if that’s even possible. Contributor Clark Wilson and I had a chance to see lots of great innovations from the NAMM Members, and met with several to speak in more depth about their products and services. Lots more to come in future posts, but for now, here are a few photos of the day…

…a day that included some fun celebrity sightings, like Billy Bob Thornton. And how about the amazing Jake Shimabukuro at the Kamaka booth, and at the same time right across the aisle, Willie K jamming at Kanile’a!  The top off the night with a the great Heart of Inspiration event from Yamaha, capped with Lifetime Acheivment Award drummer and founding member of U2 Larry Mullen Jr. Larry and an Allstar band capped the night with a very rare solo performance of some of U2’s greatest hits.

Whew…off to a few photos. More to come!
