If you were not at B.B. Kings Blues Club in Nashville
on Friday night, July 23rd, you missed the best guitar show in town.
The Epiphone NAMM party was THE place to be! In case you missed it, here
are some pics for you to check out:
Turn out for the event was GREAT! The picture below was
taken an hour before the doors opened!
Nashville's own Steve Roper started off the evening with
his brand of jazz and funk. This guy is a real treat to hear! If you are
ever in Nashville, be sure and stop by B.B.'s...Steve's band is the house
Recording artist and Epiphone calendar girl Jonda sat
in with Steve's band for a song.
Next, long time Epi friend and endorsee Nick Colionne
took the stage and the standing room only crowd was in a frenzy for most
of his set! If you've not heard of Nick yet, you will! One of the hottest
up and coming Jazz artists in the country, the Three Keys Recording Artist
is well on his way to super stardom....and for good reason. This guy is one
of the finest players you will ever hear!
Epiphone president Jim Rosenberg was on hand to thank
the crowd for packing the house....
....recognize our co-sponsors, including AKG....
....and WFSK radio 88.1 FM....
....as well as honor Nick and Duke with the Distinguished
Gibson President, Dave Berryman (below left) also
Rounding out the evening was the one and only Duke
Robillard! We are proud to be associated with this legend of Americana Blues
and if you see him it will be obvious why he consistently wins the W.C Handy
Award for Guitarist of the Year. What a treat to see this guy in
Special thanks again to our co-sponsors for helping make
this event a tremendous success!
