For any musician, the HOLY GRAIL is THE NAMM SHOW. That is the Yearly new music merchandisers convention where EVERY NEW PRODUCT, GADGET, GUITAR, PA, KEYBOARD, LIGHTS, COMPUTER PROGRAMS, and ever major product is unveiled. There are two. One in Los Angeles, and one here in Nashville.
There are booths, conferences, lectures, and EVERY MAJOR PLAYER, MUSIC RETAILER ARTIST AND STAR ARE THERE!!! Every musician wanders around, with his and her mouth agape, trying to take in every detail. Basically, it is SANTA'S WORKSHOP AND DISNEY LAND ALL WRAPPED INTO ONE THREE DAY MEGA EVENT!!!
