Summer NAMM show 2008
Nashville, TN
We returned to Music City, after NAMM's 3-year experiment in city-shopping for the summer show. This was a high-energy show: smaller than previous Nashville shows in exhibitor space (the entire arena section was not used at all), but well-attended and busy.

Here I am in the grand ballroom of the Hermitage hotel.

Again we were proud to present the incredible John Jorgenson and his quintet in concert.
The venue was especially elegant: Nashville's historic Hermitage Hotel. Its lobby and ballroom are beautiful, and provided the perfect setting for this evening of fantastic acoustic music.
