Good News: 2017 Winter NAMM Show


I have attended the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim many times, but I have always had to beg for passes from friends and associates in the music business. Well, the show is coming around again and I started going through the contacts list in my phone, and I had a moment of clarity during which I said to myself “Why can’t I get a media pass to the show?”

It really does make sense: I have a blog with almost a million hits that focuses on reviewing music and musical equipment – maybe the National Association of Music Merchants would allow me to attend and write about the cool new gear that will be introduced. Apparently they agreed and they have issued Rex and the Bass a credential!

This made me as giddy as a schoolgirl, and I look forward to the show. Of course I will be sure to let you all know what new and exciting stuff is coming up for 2017, and will snap a few pics too.
