Maximum Threshold Radio – NAMM 2016

NAMM Weekend 2016

NAMM Weekend 2016

Anaheim Ca; As another successful winter NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) came to an end, I had to chance to once again experience this year’s music phenomena. Imagine people from all over the world, all walks of life, who do not care what race , what religion, or sex you are. People who do not have a care in the world what your political agenda is. Like the intresting musicians I met from Iran, who spoke about how their country of origin bans many type’s of music and how they love coming here to speak about their passion for music and the many products they are involved with.

This is why I really love attending NAMM and covering this facinating event each and every year in January. Not for the stars, but meeting all the interesting people who enjoy music and the many products, musical gadgets and doohickies a person can dream of that are all in one place.

This year a record 1,700 + exhibitors showcasing products of every type across music products, pro audio, lighting, and sound recording, collectively displaying over 6,000 brands to attendees from 125 countries and regions around the world.

My 2-day excursion was very educational and insightful. I spoke with many celebrity musicians from all genres of music, along with the different type’s of venders attending just so they can push and have their products be seen by all the Nammtendee’s.

NAMM is not only about meeting the rock stars and playing your favorite musical instruments. It’s about giving back. The NAMM Foundation does some very positive things for the many music communities each year.

Members of NAMM’s Executive Committee personally donated $25,000 to kickoff new music industry “community chest” donor program expanding efforts to keep music education strong this last Nov. 2015. You can read more about everything the National Association of Music Merchants does for the music community, please go to their website &

I would like to Thank NAMM for letting us represent Maximum Threshold Radio by covering this once a year music extravaganza.

About the Author

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ ( You can find me @ where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: Show email: Email:
