Many famous musicians attend, some just to check out the new merchandise – others are endorsed by exhibitors. This is the show music families love. It is an event for all ages and it is a great way to learn what’s new. The National Association of Music Merchants is coming to our town July 9th through July the 11th and we are excited to have them.

This event is known to most simply as NAMM and it is like a super large music store where musicians and dealers can come and see the latest music gear in one place. Not only will there be music gear everywhere, there will be workshops going on all throughout this event. Some of the workshops that will take place at this year’s NAMM are The Future of Audio, 10 Tips for Killer Guitar Tone, Leadership in Music (Symposium) Songwriter Fair Trade Panel, 2020 Vision: The Future of Live Performance, The Pedal Summit, Social Media Insider Tips, and the list goes on.
