Only 6 days out to Winter NAMM 2013 folks!

MUSIC BY: PHYLLIS POLLACK
Sir Elton will be performing for Yamaha at the Hyperion Theater on NAMM’s Friday. The concert will be streamed at NAMM, over the internet, and in many countries globally. “That will just be a wonderful event.”
Lamond noted, “This includes hundreds of other concerts that will be going on over the four days of the show. So I just love the fact there will be so much music. And in the hotel lobbies, are just all kinds of people playing. I think Jon (Hammond) will hopefully be playing again this year.”
Jon Hammond also took part in the call. Lamond introduced him as “The best (Hammond) B3 player, right there.” Hammond has performed with many legendary players and as a clinician. As a product artist, he has introduced many innovative products to music stores and their customers over the last 30 plus years.
Hammond, who was a Berklee College of Music attendee, is closely associated with the two main products of his career, the Excelsior Accordion and the Digital B3 Organ.
Lamond stated that drummers Bernard Purdie and Steve Gadd will be among players at NAMM. “For a drummer like me, it just doesn’t get much better than that,” said Lamond, praising their talent. “So from an overall point, I think the show is reflective of the industry,” he contended.
Lamond attributed this year’s increased number of female musicians, both performing and endorsing as a result of the exhibitors, saying, “I think it’s a reflection of the environment, and manufacturers, who mainly plan those events. That’s the exhibitors’ doing, so I give the credit to them.”
Jon Hammond stated that this year will mark the first-ever NAMM Hammond organ night, which will be held on Friday in the Hilton lobby. Chester Thompson, who has played with groups including Weather Report and Genesis will be among those playing. Other notable Hammond endorsees will also perform.
The convention is still closed to the public, and open only to those in the industry, or those who have passes. There is still no day that is open to the general public. Lamond explained, “It’s a fragile balance between a trade event and a public event.”
