Leah LIVE from NAMM!
NAMM ( National Association of Music Merchants) The NAMM Show is the Worlds largest trade show dedicated to the music industry. Leah attended the show for the 4th time this year and was able to interact with gear suppliers and innovators in addition to being able to talk directly with the musicians that were there to see the newest equipment now available.
What can I say about the NAMM convention to someone that hasn’t been there? The convention itself is very overwhelming. There are something like 300,000 attendee’s all packed in the gigantic Anaheim Convention Center. One thing that hits you first is how noisy it is. If you are in the drum section its horribly loud. I definitely like the quieter sections and I am more of a guitar enthusiast anyway. This year the magazine booth was right smack in the middle of a drum aisle and it was a bit LOUD. So I did my rounds to many other booths as well, to visit many of my friends that were exhibiting like Jason Oberly at his booth next to Johnny Coffin. Jason exhibited his airbrush painted Jon 5 guitars on his new invention, the revolving guitar stand. Johnny Coffin as always has killer coffin guitar cases,some painted by Jason, and many celebs come to his booth all day for signings. Rock n Roll Gangstar Apparel booth had a plethora of 80’s rockers coming to and fro to sign items and take photo’s with fans. People I saw at Gangstar: Jaime St James, Ron Keel, Todd La Torre, AJ Pero, Stacey Blades, and many more. Darryl Boyd’s booth is always crazy! Rock n Roll Industries also had a great mix of cool celebrities stop by to sign their wares or take photo’s. They had Great White, Doyle from the Misfits, Archer, Neil Zlozower, The Sullen crew, Chad Lee and many more. That booth is always bumping as well!
