What a great way to start the new year…The National Association of Music Merchants, or NAMM as it’s commonly called returns for the annual industry-only tradeshow. The show officially opens tomorrow, January 22nd for a 4 day run at the Anaheim Convention Center. It is here that you will find all of the biggest and best companies showing off their gear for the upcoming retail year. The show is also filled with demos and performances by some of the biggest names in the industry.
316 Press will be there as much as possible looking for some hot new gear to report on with an obvious focus towards the positive music scene which (thankfully) is more and more recognized and a major market. Keep an eye out here for press releases as well. These releases are obviously a bit more product focused, but many of our readers are also musicians, producers or otherwise involved in the industry. Be sure to watch for performance coverage as well. At this point we plan to be at the 6th annual WATS Night of Worship…a free concert featuring Israel Houghton, Doyle Dykes and more.
In the mean time, here are a few pics from the media preview day and the start of the masses coming together.
