Winter NAMM '08
(Anaheim, Jan 17-20, 2008)

Once again we were privileged to present the great John Jorgenson and his quintet in concert, along with Raul Reynoso and friends and Saga's bluegrass band, the Tora Bora Boys. These Friday night events are usually the highlight of the show for us, and this year was no exception.

Our booth got a bit of an overhaul this year, as we added two video monitors that ran slide shows of our products and artists. The content of the slide shows enabled us to unclutter our picture gallery considerably.

To soften the hi-tech look of the monitors, we added some greenery. We were pretty happy with the new look.

Some things never change, and thankfully one of those is my long-time partner Dave Coontz.
