NAMM Convention 2011

The NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) convention is a free for all of new instruments, amazing performances and oddball culture.

Time Machine

This year at the show, I focused on the instruments and the performances.  The craziness of the LA metal scene wanna be folks were missed by me this year.

While the freaks are pretty great photo subjects, I spent some quiet time looking at beautiful instruments.

Tape and DrumsPaiste also had a couple of great performances, one planned, one was impromptu.

Ndugu Chancler has been heard on too many hits to name.  “Thriller” and “Billie Jean” are just a couple of the amazing pieces of music he is on.

JR has been a hit maker for years; playing with Steve Winwood, Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Lionel Ritchie and hundreds of other stars.   He and Ndugu closed the show with an amazing powerhouse performance.

After the dust settled on the NAMM convention, I was able to attend a performance by two of Brazil’s best drummers.  Eloy Casagrande and Aquiles Priester left everyone’s jaws dropped at the end of the night.
